“Solo Art Series” Exhibition Results Announced

The Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is pleased to announce the winning artists of the gallery’s recent 9th Solo Art Series Art Competition.  

The Solo Art Series competition closed on May 5, 2018. 12 artists were selected as finalists. From that selection, 4 artists were then chosen to have individual month long solo art exhibitions.  The remaining 8 artists were awarded Artist Showcase features.

The Solo Art Series took place within a extremely competitive atmosphere.   The task of selecting only four artists from the 56 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.  The following are the 4 winning Solo Series Artists and when their solo art exhibition will be held.

As part of the selection process, the other 8 artists who were in the top 12 will also have an Artist Showcase feature. The artists who were selected for the Artist Showcase features (with one Artist Showcase being be posted every 2 weeks beginning on May 15th) are; Julia Michry, Ilona Abou-Zolof, Ramana Karkus, Sheri Emerson, Lynden Cowan, Leif Sohlman, Stephen Way and Julia Harwood   

Out of 56 artists who submitted to this Solo Art Series art competition, 5 were eliminated due to deficiencies in their Biography, Artist’s Statement or art. From the 52 artists who were left, 32 artists were then selected as finalists. 12 artists were selected from the 32 final artists and any of the finalists could have been included in the final 12. 

From the finals group the gallery then chose the final 12 artists, with 4 artists being named for the Solo’s and 8 artists for the Artist Showcases.  We feel that the majority of the 32 finalists could have easily been included in the final group of 12 artists.

For each solo exhibition the gallery will distribute, promote and circulate press releases to over 550+ major News Outlets, Premium FOX, CBS, NBC, Affiliated Sites, Guaranteed inclusion on Google News & Bing News and social media distribution through LST gallery’s broad social media network.
