“Syncopation” Art Exhibition Opening
The William Ris Gallery is proud to present Syncopation, a duo show featuring two award winning artists, Michael Ingui and Robin D Williams, from August 18 through September 9, 2018.
An architect, artist and advocate, Michael Ingui is a partner at the award winning New York based architectural design firm Baxt Ingui Architects PC which specializes in sustainable architectures and designs. Ingui’s 2008 MTA commissioned artwork “Crescendo” which won the 2008 Building Brooklyn Award, and came second (to Chuck Close’s “Subway Portraits) in the 2017 Time Out Magazine’s “Top 20 NY Subway Art Installations.”
Robin D Williams rose as part of the underground collective of young artists in the ’70s and ’80s in Manhattan, then known for her colorful abstract paintings until she landed on blind contour drawings as her primary style, now for over 20 years. In 2007, Williams was awarded a coveted membership to the Drawing Center in Manhattan, the only not for profit museum in the U.S. to focus solely on the exhibition of drawings.
