Ann Chernow was born and brought up New York, and experienced much of the New York City art world of the l950s and l960s while studying at New York University. Her art instructors were Jules Olitski, Howard Conant, Hale Woodruff and Robert Kaupelis all of whom provided strong influences on her development as a professional artist.
Chernow earned a Masters Degree in college art teaching, earned recognition as a Connecticut Humanities Scholar for her teaching skills, while continuing to make art in many media with a focus on printmaking. She has created a defining body of work. This work is a genre that is recognized as unique as it consists of moments of suspended reality based on material from all aspects of American movies of the l930s and l940s, but is reinvented in her own vocabulary.
Chernow’s work is in the collections of: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Brooklyn Museum, the National Academy of Design, the Museum of the City of New York, the Achenbach Foundation, Yale University Art Gallery, the Library of Congress and many others. She has exhibited nationally and internationally in numerous one person and group exhibitions.
