The Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is pleased to announce it has launched a new archive website to host our past exhibitions.
As many of you may know, over the last several weeks, the LST website has been experiencing intermittent slow loading and downtime. This “intermittent” has become more frequent after our hosting company migrated our site to a newer, supposedly faster, server. However, as a result of the continued issues with the website, we have changed hosting companies and created an archive site as a complement to the main Light Space & Time gallery website.
As one of the longest running online art gallery websites, the LST site has hundreds of exhibitions and, as such, is a very large, image heavy site. Websites with the sheer amount of content and number of images as we have can sometimes become unstable and experience issues.
After extensive consultation with our web development and technical support team, it was decided that moving older content to an archive website would help ensure we could preserve our older exhibitions and continue to provide artists with a place to showcase their talent long into the future.
Prior to Fusion Art purchasing LST from John Math in 2018, the oldest exhibitions were already being purged in an effort to make room for the newer exhibitions. We did not want to continue to do this, and have artists lose elements of their portfolios, so the solution was the creation of an archive website to host these past exhibitions for the long term.
Therefore, all monthly and special exhibitions, solo art exhibitions and artist showcases prior to January 2022 will now be hosted on our new archive website – LightSpaceTimeArchives.art.
In order to access any exhibitions prior to January 2022, just add the word “archives” to the current URL of your exhibition. It will then take you to the archives site and directly to the exhibition you are looking for.
Alternatively, you can visit the main LST website and click the LST Archives button in the menu bar at the top of every page. This will take you to the archives site and you can find your exhibitions in the applicable section.
All other content, including current art competitions and exhibitions (January 2022 and beyond), art marketing articles, artist news and testimonials remain on the main LST site.
We’re thrilled to announce that the Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery (LST) and its parent gallery, Fusion Art, are moving to Santa Fe, New Mexico on January 1, 2022.
After over 8 years based in Jupiter, Florida and then 3 years based in Palm Springs, California, LST is relocating to the Santa Fe area. Considered one of the largest art markets in the United States, Santa Fe is recognized worldwide for its rich culture and diverse art community.
The city is home to over 250 art galleries as well as an assortment of museums and performing arts. Art collectors from all around the world visit the city looking to buy fine art of all media and subject matter including all forms of contemporary, Native American, and western art.
In addition to the galleries and museums, throughout the year Santa Fe hosts a collection of art markets and festivals and boasts the largest proportion of artists, performers and writers of any U.S. city.
As 2022 dawns, LST reconfirms its commitment of helping artists, worldwide, to market and sell their art. Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery conducts monthly themed online art competitions and art exhibitions for new and emerging artists on a worldwide basis. It is the gallery's mission to identify talented artists and help them to successfully market their works to the art world.
You can read the entire announcement on the Fusion Art website.
Thank you to all of our artists for being part of our LST and Fusion Art families. We wish all of you a very happy and prosperous new year!
The Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is pleased to announce that the May issue of Artists Down Under – Australia & New Zealand has featured the gallery and its parent company, Fusion Art, in this month’s edition.
The digital online magazine was the creation of Australian digital artist, Athalie Taylor. It was created out of a desire to feature and promote the Australian and New Zealand artists who met through a common interest in photography and digital art by participating in the digital art/Photoshop courses offered by Sebastian Michaels.
The article, written by Australian digital artist, Trish Hoskin, is an interview with LST and Fusion Art co-owner Valerie Hoffman. She discusses the history and creation of Fusion Art, the acquisition of the Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery in 2018, and the art competition, exhibition and marketing & promotion opportunities both galleries offer to international artists on a worldwide basis.
The gallery thanks Trish and magazine editor, Pam Henderson, for the beautiful feature. The May issue of the magazine can be found HERE. The article is located on pages 64-67.
