The theme for our November Exhibition is “Colors”. The submission process and competition for the artists began in the middle of September and ended on October 29, 2010. We want to thank everyone for participating and entering. Just because your artwork was not selected is not a reflection on your artistic talents and skill. It takes a lot of nerve to enter and expose yourself to this type of competition and you should be applauded for your efforts. Please do not give up entering future competitions and shows, as your art could have easily been chosen too.
Due to the volume and the quality of the entries received this month we also included 10 artists who were chosen for Special Recognition. All winners will now be featured on the Light Space & Time website for the month of November 2010. Thereafter, the artworks and links to the artist’s websites will remain online in the Light Space & Time Archive Section. Congratulations to our artists who made our Colors Exhibition so successful. At anytime, we invite our winners and other interested visitors to link their websites to the Gallery’s archive page for further ongoing promotion.
Sonya Conti is from Kansas City, MO. As an artist, she always wants her work to express emotion and to convey an atmosphere to the viewer within the boundaries of the canvas. A turn in focus now allows application, translation and experimentation of the brush stroke.” Her work is with water based media as well as some collage work in various pieces using different papers. Painterly or contemporary is the flavor of her work. Sonya’s artwork can be found in private collections around the world as well as displayed in Dayton Ohio. http://www.marysonyaconti.com
