The exhibition is open to photography, oil, acrylic, watercolor, mixed-media, graphics, drawing, 2D, 3D, and sculpture works and the top pieces will win a prestigious honor. "Entering its 7th year, Hamptons Juried Art Show has welcome hundreds of artists as they compete for a chance at the grand prize; a Top 4 Group Show at the RJD Gallery in Sag Harbor, New York," shared Eve Gianni Corio, Director of RJD Gallery.
