Artist Testimonials

The Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely gratified and rather overwhelmed by the encouraging feedback that we have received from artists all around the world who have participated in our themed online art competitions and online exhibitions.

Since 2010 the Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery has encouraged new and emerging artists to enter our themed art competitions, without regards to their experience or education in the art field.

The following is a sampling of some of the positive thoughts and feedback that we have received from our art competition and art exhibition gallery artists.

We cannot say thank you enough for your kind thoughts and words about the Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery.  We are glad that you are a part of the gallery!


Nadine Surjik, Saskatchewan, CA

I wanted to tell you how appreciative I am of your support of artists. The encouragement that you provide has large and wonderful consequences.

Painting for me is a solitary experience.… Read More “Nadine Surjik, Saskatchewan, CA”

Jon Bøe Paulsen, Oslo, Norway

Dear John: Thanks for the wonderful presentation you have given me and my art! It’s rare, almost never I’ve come across someone who’s actually professional in their work. I have long wanted a gallery connection in the United States, and I hope we can also work together in the future. Thank you again. Best regards, Jon Bøe Paulsen –

John, it is such an honor to be included in LightSpaceTime’s competition and exhibition.  What I so appreciate about your work is that you recognize and celebrate the diversity of many styles, subjects, and expressions.  It is always such a treat to see the breadth of creativity around a common theme and to enjoy artists on various points along their journeys. Thanks for all you do! Vincent Isner –
