Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery (LST) is very pleased to announce the expansion of its popular Solo Art Series – “An Opportunity to Shine”.
Since September 2015 the gallery has conducted a total of 4 Solo Art Series Competitions which attracted a total of 225 artists. Out of these 225 artists the gallery awarded a total of 16 Solo Art Exhibitions to 16 very talented and deserving artists.
However, it is believed that out of each Solo Art Series art competition many equally worthy artists were overlooked and not included due to the size constraints of the competition (4 winning artists per art competition).
The gallery has decided that in addition to the normal award of 4 solo art exhibitions, it will now also include 8 additional artists. These 8 artists and their submitted entry package into the Solo Art Series (Biography, Artist Statement and 5 Images) will now be shown and featured in the gallery’s Artist Showcase section. The gallery will schedule 2 artists and their artwork to be featured in the Artist Showcase each month.
The LST Solo Art Series offers emerging artists the opportunity and the marketing vehicle to showcase a full body of their artworks (from 10 to 25 images) in an individual month-long online solo art exhibition. Any art that was previously entered and shown on the Light Space & Time website may also be included.
The LST Gallery website averages 70,000+ visitors and more than 225,000+ page views per month. Out of those visitors, 80% are new visitors to the website. Being juried into the “Solo” Art Exhibition Series should result in an increase in visitor traffic to the artist’s website as well.
In addition to the above, winning artists accepted into the “Solo” Art Exhibition Series will receive extensive worldwide publicity in the form of email marketing, 70+ press release announcements and wide-spread social media marketing and promotion to make the art world aware of the artists’ solo art exhibition. There will also be a video of the winning artists’ artworks on the Light Space & Time YouTube Channel.
In addition, there will also be links back to the artists’ website as part of this achievement package. Winning artists also receive a digital Award Certificate, Event Postcard, and Press Release for their art portfolio.
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 requirement of a complete entry package creates an opportunity for the artist to craft and to polish their current artist statement and artist biography.
Amateur or professional 2D and 3D artists (including photography) with or without prior group or solo art exhibition experience are encouraged to submit their entries to the Solo Art Series. The next Solo Art Series art competition will take place beginning on November 25, 2016. Here is the link to the Solo Art Series competition prospectus and competition details will be updated on this page on that day. Thank you for your attention.
