The gallery’s competition for March 2022 was the 12th Annual “Botanicals” Online Art Competition. 2D and 3D, artists, (including photography & digital art) from around the world, were called upon to make online submissions for possible inclusion in to the Gallery’s April 2022 online group art exhibition.

Artists were asked for their interpretation of the “Botanicals” theme by submitting their best abstract and/or representational art for this competition. The submission process and competition for the artists began in February 2022 and concluded on March 27, 2022.

The gallery received 784 entries from 22 different countries from around the world, as well as from 33 different states and the District of Columbia.   

The exhibition has been divided into three media categories.  Painting & Other Media, Photography & Digital and 3 Dimensional Art categories.  In addition, there is an overall Winning Artists Category, which is the “best of the best” and consists of the ten (10) 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 for the month of April 2022. Thereafter, the artworks and links to the artist’s websites will remain online in the Light Space & Time Archives.

Congratulations to our artists who made our 12th 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.
