Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery announces its 19th “Solo Art Series” Online Art Competition. The gallery will judge the Top 12 artists who have the most complete “Body of Work” to show. From that group of 12 artists, the gallery will award 4 monthly Solo Art Exhibitions and the next 8 artists will be awarded and featured in the gallery’s Artist Showcase Section.
The first of the four Solo Art Exhibitions will begin on September 15, 2021, and each solo exhibition will run for approximately 30 days through to January 14, 2022. The Artist Showcase features will also begin on September 15, 2021, with one of the 8 artists being shown on the 1st and 15th of each month. The Artist Showcase content will be the artist's Solo Art Series entry package posted on the website and promoted in the gallery’s social media networks.
The gallery invites online submission of 2D and 3D art (including photography and digital art) from artists around the world for possible selection as one of the Gallery’s 4 Solo Art Exhibitions or 8 Artist Showcase Features.
The gallery is trying to identify and promote artists who have a complete “Body of Work” to show and it encourages artists regardless of where they reside to submit their best abstract and representational art. There is No Theme for this “Solo Art Series” Competition.
This LST Solo Art Series offers emerging artists the opportunity to showcase a full body of their artworks (from 10 to 25 images) in an individual month-long online solo art exhibition.

The competitive process will encompass not only the quality and depth of the artist’s artwork but will also include an evaluation of the overall presentation of the artist’s biography and artist’s statement as included in the entry package. The purpose of this competition from the gallery’s point-of-view to judge the artists who have a complete “Body of Work” to show.
The requirement of a complete entry package creates an opportunity for the artist to craft and or to polish their current artist statement and artist biography.
