2014 Top 25 Artists

JAS Top 25                Congratulations to top 3 picks – Gail Postal, Steph Slater and Lauren Tilden – and to top three honorable mentions – Deborah Buck, Eva Iacono and Carol Quint!!

On behalf of The Retreat’s 6th Annual Juried Art Show  I would like to thank all of the artists for their submission(s). We were thrilled to have received so many entries from around the globe – from Russia, Israel, Sweden, and all over the USA! What a tribute to how much the art community cares!

From the bottom of our hearts we would like to thank our judges, Christina Strassfield, curator at Guild Hall in East Hampton, NY and Janet Goleas, former curator at the Islip Art Museum, for their time, effort and dedication to the fight against domestic violence. We had an overwhelming response and the jurors’ truly enjoyed seeing all of the entries; they had a tough job picking the Top 25 artists.

The top 25 artists, as selected by the above jurors, are being featured in a group show online AND in-person from November 29th to December 17th at the Richard J. Demato Fine Arts Gallery in the heart of Sag Harbor, NY.  At the opening reception the top three “best in show” were announced on November 29th. Those artists win a separate group exhibition at the gallery to be held in the Spring of 2015.
