ABOUT THE JUROR: Born in Rome, Sara De Luca is the owner and director of Ille Arts Gallery, one of the foremost fine arts purveyors in the Hamptons of Long Island, New York. Sara De Luca worked as a stylist in the fashion industry for many years, and also found time to raise a family here. Her two daughters are both aspiring artists. In 2016, Sara moved her small gallery to a larger and more prominent location on Amagansett’s Main Street and has expanded the gallery’s overall vision as well. Ille Arts has bloomed into a haven for multi-media arts’ activities as well as one of the East End's most preeminent art exhibition venues. Poetry and theater performances have become a regular event and Thursday art classes have recently been added. Her intention is for local artists to be involved in the arts at her gallery beyond mere ‘inspiration’. De Luca's lifelong 'passion for the visual', coupled with her extensive connections to the New York art scene, has ensured a steady flow of boldface names on the gallery walls, as well as the work of emerging, frequently local, artists. Ille Arts is known for promoting an international flavor on Main Street, from both inside and outside the East End community. In Sara’s words, "I'm not channeling any specific area of art, we have no restrictions, whatever strikes me, and moves me, is the kind of work I exhibit."
