Our art competition for February 2017 was our 8th Annual “Abstracts” and 2D and 3D artists (including photography) from around the world, were called upon to make online submissions for possible inclusion in to the Gallery’s March 2017 online group art exhibition.
Artists were asked for their interpretation of the “Abstracts” theme by submitting their best nonobjective or nonrepresentational art for this competition.
The gallery received 887 entries from 36 different countries from around the world, including Australia, Bosnia and Hercegovina, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, United Arab Emirates, Estonia, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Northern Ireland, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Saint Maarten, Scotland, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine, United Kingdom and Uruguay. In addition, the gallery received entries from 38 different states.
The exhibition has been divided into three media categories. Painting & Other Media, Photography & Digital Media and 3 Dimensional Art. 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 the 3 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.
To view the artwork in each media category, click on a thumbnail image and that will take you to the Slide Show, which will then contain larger images. In order to leave the Slide Show at any time, just click on any of the large images in order to escape and that will take you back to the thumbnails images.
All winning entries will now be featured on the Light Space & Time website for the month of March 2017. 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 “Abstracts” 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 3 different media categories. Please go to the results of the Abstracts 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 the Overall Category and 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 Abstracts Art Exhibition “Special Merit Award Category” here.
Painting & Other Category – The painting & other category is considered to be any art where a pigment was applied to a two-dimensional surface, such as canvas, paper, or panel. This category comprises the following media; acrylics, oil, pastels, watercolor, gouache, tempera, ink, line type drawings, encaustic, fresco, fabric and mixed media, etc. applied on canvas, canvas board, paper or any other flat surface. Please go to the results in the Abstracts Art Exhibition “Painting & Other Category” here.
Photography & Digital Category – This category contains any images captured by either an analog or digital camera and would be viewed as a print. Black and white photographs, color photographs, digital or analog photographs, photo grams, other experimental photography, alternative photographic processes, manipulated photography etc. would be included in this category. In addition, we have included most digital art in this section. Please go to the results in the Abstracts Art Exhibition “Photography & Digital Category” here.
