The gallery’s exhibition for February 2024 is the 14th Annual “Botanicals” Online Art Exhibition. Both 2D and 3D artists, from around the world, were asked to submit their best abstract and/or representational art.

The gallery received 598 entries from 18 different countries around the world, as well as from 30 different states and the District of Columbia.   

The exhibition has been divided into three media categories - Painting & Other Media, Photography & Digital and 3 Dimensional categories.  In addition, there is an overall Winning Artists Category, which is the “best of the best” and consists of the twelve (12) best entries comprised from all the 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.

All winning entries will now be featured on the Light Space & Time website homepage for the 3 months. Thereafter, the artworks will remain online in the Light Space & Time Archives. To see exhibitions prior to February 2022, please visit our LST Archives website.

Congratulations to our artists who made our 14th Annual “Botanicals” 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.

For each Solo Art Exhibition and Artist Showcase, the gallery will distribute, promote and circulate press releases to hundreds of major News Outlets, art news websites and social media distribution through LST gallery’s broad social media network.

In addition to the above, the winning solo artists receive a YouTube Video presentation of their Body of Work, Event Postcard and Press Release for their art portfolio.  There will also be links back to the artists’ website as part of this achievement package.
