Dear Friends,

We are deeply pleased to present the first comprehensive New England exhibition of photographs by Rockport’s own Ni Rong. Twenty-two of the artist’s prints will hang in the gallery from August 3rd - 12th.  The artist will be in attendance at the opening on the evening of Saturday, the third.

In America - Fall #3














As Ni recently said, “I grew up in a Qing Dynasty courtyard in Beijing and went through the Cultural Revolution during my school years. I have lived in the dichotomy of two worlds: the east and the west. This work is about the struggle of trying to hold on to the past that shaped us for what we are today, while giving the self a chance to grow in a new culture.”

The honesty and beauty of the artist’s work has been celebrated in galleries in Beijing, New York City, and California, as well as having been published and awarded quickly growing recognition. But in Maine, Ni has found something ineffably special, “Maine is the only place that I have lived in America that makes me feel at home, the home that I have been longing for ever since I left China 28 years ago.”

The minute we first saw Ni’s work, we wanted her vision to grace our walls….it is unique, beautiful, provocative and brave. We hope that you’ll be able to partake of it.

Gallery hours are Tuesday through Sunday, 10 am until 6 pm.  Call 207-230-7225 for details. A reminder, we have moved just up the street to 23 Central Street, the former site of the legendary Corner Shop, directly across from Union Hall.

We hope to see you soon,
Peter and Terri
