The theme for our October Exhibition is “Liquid”. The submission process and competition for the artists began in the middle of August and ended on September 29, 2010. We had many entries from around the World and we want to thank everyone for participating and trying. Just because your artwork was not selected is not a reflection on your artistic talents and skill. It takes a lot of nerve to enter and expose yourself to this type of competition and you should be applauded for your efforts. Please do not give up entering competitions and shows, as your art could have easily been chosen too.
Due to the volume and the quality of the entries received this month we also included 5 artists who were chosen for Special Recognition. All winners will now be featured on the Light Space & Time website for the of month of October 2010. Thereafter, the artworks and links to the artist’s websites will remain online in the Light Space & Time Archives. Congratulations to our artists who made our Liquid Exhibition so successful.
1st Place – Marie Dancy-Brennan – “Wave”
Marie Dancy-Brennan graduated with a BA in graphic art from San Diego State University. She has been involved in the art community for the past 30 years, selling and exhibiting mainly in the San Diego area. Art is an unexpected connection to nameless and wordless inner being found through and exploration of line, shape and color. http://www.zhibit.org/mdbrennan
2nd Place – Richard Mittelstadt – “Apprehension”
Having retired from teaching secondary art education, my goal is to establish myself as a reemerging artist. Besides earning several awards for my intaglio prints, drawings, and watercolor paintings over the past several decades, I received the Award of Excellence in acrylic painting in the Burnsville Visual Arts Society 2010 Art Fete and First Place Award in Water Media in the Savage Arts Council 2010 Juried Art Competition for the same acrylic painting, “Rocky Coast.” http://www.mittelstadtartstudio.com
3rd Place – Ione Citrin – “Tsunami”
Ione’s art has shown nationally since 1998 when, after years of world travel, a successful television, radio, theatre and film career in the performing arts, she decided to focus her richly diverse talents on the visual arts. Ione’s artistic expression, creativity, and passion for communication have resulted in numerous awards for her painting, sculpture, mixed media, and assemblage. Ione maintains an extensive exhibition schedule in juried, non-juried, and invitational arts venues. http://www.combyione.com
Honorable Mention – Richard Halterman – “Orgasm”
The original photograph begins to morph into an abstract image while taking on the look and feel of a painting, hence the question I am often asked, “Did you paint that?” In a manner of speaking, yes. The computer monitor is my canvas, photo manipulation software acts as my brush and palette and an unseen, yet strongly felt presence influences and guides me as I do my best to get out of my own way and allow whatever comes to me to flow through me. http://www.richhalterman.com
Honorable Mention – David Everette – “Meandering”
I have been a photographer since 1970, 31 years as a professional corporate and commercial photographer and custom lab owner. My passion has been to find art in the natural world and I pursue that passion when not working. http://abetteri.com
