Competition Information:

For September, the gallery conducted the 6th Annual “Open” (No Theme) Online Art Competition.  2D and 3D artists (including photography) from around the world were called upon to make online submissions for possible inclusion in to the Gallery’s October 2016 online group art exhibition. 

There was no theme for this art competition and the gallery accepted art which was representative or in abstract form for possible inclusion into this art exhibition

The submission process and competition for the artists began in August 2016 and concluded on September 26, 2016. The gallery received 654 entries from 20 different countries from around the world, including Australia, Canada, Croatia, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Romania, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and Wales. In addition, the gallery received entries from 40 different states.  

Due to the volume of entries the gallery felt that it was necessary to create three (3) media categories, in order to make the judging and the results fair for this competition. The media categories are Painting & Other Media, Photography & Digital and 3 Dimensional Art. In addition, for this particular competition we have an overall Winning Artists Category, which is the “best of the best” and consists of the ten (10) best entries from the 3 media categories.

We also included Special Merit awards and Special Recognition awards for outstanding art this month. The artists in either of these groups could have easily been included in the upper tier of our winners, as their art was also exceptional.

Artists were asked for their interpretation of the theme “Botanical & Floral” by submitting their best representational and non-representational art which depicts this theme. “Botanical & Floral” art subjects include flowers, fruits, herbs, leaves and plants.  

The art competition and the submission process for the artists began in March 2016 and concluded on April 26, 2016.

Special Merit Award Category – These are the artists and their artwork which we felt could easily have been placed higher but due to the size constraints in each media category, this art was placed in this special category.  Any of the Special Merit art, in many cases, is interchangeable with the best art that we selected for the top tiers.

March 2015

The CityScapes Art Competition - Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery

Special Recognition Award for "Paris in a Bubble" - 8 by 10 inch - Oil on Canvas

                 

 

Judge: Carolyn Edlund (Artist Marketing Expert at Artsyshark.com)

She commented:

"In judging this exhibition, I considered the different sights and feelings that cities present. Up close, they can be bustling and chaotic, filled with energy flowing in a million directions. From afar, a city can appear as a serene, glowing landscape. Cities are nothing without people, and their everyday tasks and activities give a city life and character. I found in these submissions all of these impressions of city life, and carefully chose those pieces of art that captured fascinating parts of the urban experience, combined with striking visual impact."

Competition Information

The art competition and the submission process for the artists began in February 2015 and concluded on March 27, 2015. The gallery received 676 entries from 17 different countries from around the world, including Australia, Austria, Canada, Ecuador, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Morocco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, Taiwan, Ukraine and the United Kingdom. In addition, the gallery received entries from 31 different states.

 February 2015

The All-Woman Art Competition  - Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery

Special Recognition Award for "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" - 16 by 12 inch - Oil on Canvas

                                         

Judge: Aletta de Wal (Artist Marketing Expert) 

She commented:

"Every artist who submitted their art to the “All Women” Online Art Competition sponsored by Light Space & Time deserves a note of commendation. You created many works, selected one or more and added an artist statement. That takes creativity, choice and completion. And these acts deserve and were give extreme care in the jurying process.

In making my selections from the works that John R. Math asked me to review, I brought many perspectives to my choices. Among them aptitude, breadth, composition, depth, effects, flair, gradations, hues, inspiration, joy, kinds, lines, materials, nuances, optics, perspective, qualities, range, styles, texture, unity, variety, wit, xylography, yantra and zen.  I considered each entry individually from my eye as an artist, advisor and collector. I sorted and resorted the entries in each category at least a dozen times until ten stood out in each group. The most difficult task was ranking those ten, especially when they came from 1154 entries.”

Competition Information

The gallery received 1,154 entries from 27 different countries from around the world, including Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, Cyprus, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Romania, Russia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden,  Turkey, United Kingdom and Venezuela. In addition, the gallery received entries from 43 different states.
