The gallery’s competition for November 2020 was the 10th Annual “Nature” Online Art Competition. 2D and 3D, artists, (including photography & digital art) from around the world, were called upon to make online submissions for possible inclusion in to the Gallery’s December 2020 online group art exhibition.

Artists were asked for their interpretation of the “Nature” theme by submitting their best abstract or representational art for this competition. The submission process and competition for the artists began in October 2020 and concluded on November 26, 2020.

The gallery received 759 entries from 27 different countries from around the world, as well as from 32 different states and the District of Columbia.   

The exhibition has been divided into three media categories.  Painting & Other Media, Photography & Digital and 3 Dimensional Art categories.  In addition, there is an overall Winning Artists Category, which is the “best of the best” and consists of the ten (10) best entries comprised from all the media categories.

The gallery also included Special Merit awards and Special Recognition awards for outstanding art. Many of the artists in either of these groups could have easily been included in the upper tier of our winners, as their art was also exceptional.

All winning entries will now be featured on the Light Space & Time website for the month of December 2020. 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 10th Annual “Nature” Art Exhibition so successful this month. At any time, we invite our winning artists and other interested visitors to link their websites to the Gallery’s archive page for further ongoing promotion.

Overall Winning Artists Category – The overall winning artist’s category consists of the 10 Best Entries received from the Painting & Other and the Photography & Digital media categories. Please go to the results of the Nature Art Exhibition “Overall Winning Artists” Category here.

Special Merit Award Category – These are the artists and their artwork which we felt could easily have been placed higher but due to the size constraints in each media category, this art was placed in this special category.  Any of the Special Merit art, in many cases, is interchangeable with the best art that we selected for the top tiers. Please go to the results in the Nature Art Exhibition “Special Merit Award Category” here.

Artist Statement

I have always felt passionate about animals and wildlife and through my love of photography I draw my inspiration for creating my art. My love of nature, photography, and art merge together as one.

I hope that my art stirs emotions and draws attention to the beauty of the wildlife and animals.  I also hope that it will inspire people to do their part in helping to protect and conserve animals from all around the world.

Photography is the beginning of the creative process I then enhance the scene as I see fit, all part of my photographic art journey.  Lyn’s website:
