Chinese Inspirations/North Fork Creation

The William Ris Gallery is pleased to present Chinese Inspiration/North Fork Creation, a solo exhibition of sculpture, color photography and ink paintings by noteworthy artist and international specialist in Chinese history and culture, Dr. Robert Oxnam. On view from July 14 – August 12, 2018 with an opening reception scheduled for July 14, 2018 from 4 – 7 pm.

The exhibition will include over 40 works of wood sculptures, color photographs and ink drawings that explore Oxnam’s artistic persona – a merging of Chinese philosophy and artistic tradition, American resourcefulness and imagination. Organized and curated by the artist and his wife, Dr. Vishakha N. Desai, a scholar of Asian Art, the exhibition will concentrate on Oxnam’s wood sculptures. Inspired by “Chinese Scholars Rocks” (gongshi) that highlight natural shapes in ancient stones weathered in riverbeds and mountains, Oxnam’s sculptures also pay tribute to the beauty and spirit of the North Fork – weathered wood found on the shores of the Long Island Sound from Port Jefferson to Orient Point.

About Penelope's Stories

Penelope's Stories is a jewelry collection built on the idea of bringing women together in a  community to share stories and strength. We celebrate beautiful jewelry, it's creators and history, and art motivated not just by the missions of our designers but by those of people working to provide support and independence to women around the world. We donate 10% of all our sales to WfWI, an organization based on the idea that together we are strong women, and strong women particularly in networks can help other women become stronger. 

One woman can change anything. Many women can change everything.
