About the William Ris Gallery

The William Ris Gallery has roots that stretches for decades. In 1966, Barbara Starr Schreckengaust opened the Camp Hill Gallery and Academy of Art along with her son, William Ris, in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania. Their collaboration, love and knowledge of the arts was the foundation for the continued success of the gallery which was renamed in Bill’s honor following his death in 1970. In 1971, the gallery opened its second location in Stone Harbor, New Jersey. The gallery’s stable of artists has a dedicated following that is renowned and recognized nationally. Today, in their new location in Jamesport, New York, William Ris’ sister, Mary Cantone, continues to run the gallery with their high standards and collective shared vision in its new North Fork home.
