“Art reveals the illumination within each of us, always shining through us,” says Richard Demato of the RJD Gallery in Bridgehampton. Demato has chosen “Shades of Light” as the theme of the 11th annual Hamptons Juried Art Show. In this special exhibition, viewers will see the artists’ expression of themselves through their work. Artists are encouraged to enter their artwork and share their message.
All entry fees support The Retreat, the only domestic abuse services agency on the East End of Long Island. Entries are judged on both technical quality and strength of composition in supporting the empowerment of domestic abuse survivors and The Retreat’s mission of ending the cycle of violence. Submissions will be accepted through March 1. The entry fee is $50 per piece with The Retreat receiving 100 percent of the entry fees.
Since the Juried Art Show began, hundreds of artists from around the world have participated in the show, many of them doing so specifically to support the work of The Retreat. Demato believes the show is one way for artists to “empower and support children and women, to achieve a better life and world to live in.”
