Guest juror Amy Worth is an artist, teacher and a gallerist. She is co-owner of The South Street Gallery, in Greenport, NY, since 2006, which specializes in superior paintings, drawings, and works by artists from the northeast and around the country. Worth began her career as a textile artist and spent years working with color for Folia Fine Fabrics, a licensee of Ralph Lauren. Her focus on color in her teaching and work relates directly to the color mixing and matching required in textile print design. She is recently retired from a thirteen-year teaching position at Huntington High School where she taught Drawing and Painting, and Fashion Design and Illustration. She continues to teach at the gallery where she hosts a weekly life drawing session as well as a variety of workshops, master classes and lectures.
