Robert Oxnam & Arden Scott

Two maritime-inpired artists from Long Island's North Fork are collaborating in this one-night benefit exhibition at the 19th century mansion known as Brecknock Hall.  Oxnam's works are drawn from weathered wood, while Scott's use a variety of materials -- especially old iron and pine-tarred wood.  The exhibition curator is a well-known North Fork art expert, Jennifer Benton.  Benton's husband, David Nyce,is a man of many talents -- installer of the exhibition, remarkable furniture artist (two of his pieces are on display), and mayor of the wonderful town of Greenport where the exhibition takes place.
