The art which was selected for the Special Merit Category is any art from the media categories that we believe could have also been placed in the top tier of those media categories. The only reason that this art was not selected for the top tier was due to the size constraints of this particular competition. Otherwise, the Special Merit art, in many cases, is interchangeable with any of the best art that we selected elsewhere.
The winning artists will now be featured on the Light Space & Time website for the month of August 2021 and thereafter, the artworks and links to the artist’s websites will remain online in the Light Space & Time Archives for 5 years.
Congratulations to the artists who made our 11th Annual “Open” Art Exhibition so successful this month. At any time, we invite our winners and other interested visitors to link their websites to the Gallery’s Archive section for further ongoing promotion.
The Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery will have digital “Open” Award Certificates, Event Postcard and Press Releases sent to the winning artists within the few weeks. Thank you to all of the artists who participated and for being a part of the gallery. To Return to the “Open” Home Page click here.
