Kearney, Lynn Chen, Yuri Benitez, Randall Stoner and Walter Poole .
The Solo Art Series took place within a competitive atmosphere. The task of selecting only four artists from the 77 artists who entered was extremely challenging. The high quality of submissions made creating the final rankings excruciating.
The competitive process considered not only the quality and depth of the artist’s work but also the overall entry presentation, including the artist’s biography and artist’s statement.
Out of 77 artists who submitted to the Solo Art Series, 17 were eliminated due to deficiencies in their Biography, Artist’s Statement or art. From the 60 artists who were left, 29 artists were then selected as finalists. From that point, we chose the final 12 and most of the 29 finalists could have easily been included in this final group.
Each solo artist will now be promoted extensively on a worldwide basis through the LST website, including haveing their art featured on Artsy.net, in 1,000+ press releases and throughout the gallery’s social media networks.
In addition to the above, the winning solo artists also receive a YouTube Video presentation of their Body of Work, Event Postcard and a Press Release for their art portfolio. In addition, there will be links back to the artists’ website as part of this achievement package.
