About William Ris Gallery
THE HISTORY OF WILLIAM RIS GALLERY IS RICH WITH LOVE AND COMMITMENT, DETERMINATION AND HOPE.
In 1966, Barbara Starr Schreckengaust and her son William Ris Schreckengaust opened the Gallery and Academy of Art. Their collaboration, love and knowledge of the arts was the foundation for the continued success of the gallery. In 1971, the gallery opened its second location in Stone Harbor, New Jersey. The gallery’s stable of artists, while still growing, has a dedicated following that is renowned and recognized nationally.
Today, the gallery is owned by Mary Cantone who remains devoted to the memory of Bill, Barbara’s high standards and the success and growth of the gallery. In keeping with their collective shared vision, Mary recently opened William Ris East in Jamesport, New York on Long Island’s North Shore to continue the traditions of William Ris Gallery.
Mary’s career in designing interiors and space planning has included collaborating with artists and encouraging clients to enhance, with passion, the fine arts. A bonus to Cantone’s innate and nurtured abilities is her keen sensibilities for mixing mediums, styles and colors.
