Jeanette Martone “Behind The Fence" drawing.

Best in Show of The Retreat's Annual Juried Art Show, goes to Deer Park resident Jeanette Martone for "Behind The Fence."

The captivating drawing features a child wearing a hooded jacket and frowning while holding onto a chain link fence. The piece was selected from among 25 entries by jurors which included Kathryn Markel, owner of the art gallery Kathryn Markel Fine Arts and Christina Mossaides Strassfield, Museum Director / Chief Curator of Guild Hall Museum.

Martone's work will appear in a solo exhibit titled "Hope's Journey," at the Richard J. Demato Fine Arts Gallery. An opening reception will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, April 27. The exhibition will be on display through Thursday, May 9, 2013. Proceeds from sales of art in connection with the Juried Art Show will benefit The Retreat, who support local victims of domestic violence.

The Retreat's Annual Juried Art Show raises both awareness and funding to help prevent the destructive cycle of family violence. Executive Director of The Retreat, Jeffrey Friedman stated, "I am grateful to each of you and to Richard Demato for generously donating this esteemed venue and for helping The Retreat raise critical funds."
