Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery announces its 26th “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 January 15, 2024, and each solo exhibition will run for approximately 30 days through May 14, 2024.
The Artist Showcase features will also begin on January 15, 2024, 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. 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/or representational art.
There is No Theme for this “Solo Art Series” Competition so any subject matter and any media are acceptable for consideration.
Amateur or professional 2D and 3D artists, with or without prior group or solo art exhibition experience, are encouraged to submit their entries to the Solo Art Series.

The exhibitions and winning artists will be marketed and promoted to an international audience extensively through the gallery's website, in hundreds of online press release announcements, email marketing campaigns to over 31,000+ subscribers, gallery directors, art collectors, art consultants and art professionals, in online event calendars, through art news websites and through our extensive and growing social media network. Those who subscribe to our newsletter bulletins include gallery owners, corporate art representatives, art collectors, and decision makers in the fine arts field.
By having their work on the LST website, winning artists should increase exposure to their work, enhance their professional resume and create a high-quality backlink to their own website. There will also be a video of the four solo winning artists' artworks on the Light Space & Time YouTube Channel. The gallery’s YouTube Channel has more than 195,000+ video views and thousands of shares. 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/or to polish their current artist statement and artist biography.
Artists may only be selected for a solo art exhibition once in a 12-month period. After 12 months, artists may again apply for a solo art exhibition, but only with different body of work. Artists may qualify and be selected for an Artist Showcase more than once per year, but also only with a different body of work.
Any art that was previously entered and shown on the Light Space & Time website may also be entered for the Solo Art Series.
