They will now have a month-long solo art exhibition, be featured on the gallery’s front page, on the Gallery’s YouTube Channel, as well as in the “Solo Art Series” archive.

Their collaborative persona will now be promoted by the gallery with an extensive public relations campaign.

For this solo exhibition, the Gallery will distribute, promote and circulate press releases to over 550+ major News Outlets, including Premium FOX, CBS, and NBC Affiliated Sites, with guaranteed inclusion on Google News & Bing News. The Gallery will also provide social media distribution through LST’s broad social media network.

The “Solo Art Series” is a series of monthly solo art exhibitions for established artists who have a body of work to present to the public.  Artist participants were asked to submit the following 3 components for the “Solo Art Series” competition: 1. Their art.  2. Their artist biography.  3.  Their artist statement.  These elements were evaluated and judged, which resulted in the selection of the artists who will be featured in individual month-long solo art exhibitions.  This was the 21st “Solo Art Series” Art Competition that the gallery has conducted.

Below are MB’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement, along with 18 of their paintings.  We hope that you will take the time to read MB’s information and to take a look at their art.

Artist Biography

Marjorie and Bob Moskowitz created a new persona, (MB Mosk) when they began collaborating, separate from their individual studio practices. These works are a curious hybrid only slightly resembling their own work. The process attempts to create a seamless blending to appear as a single artist has produced the painting. They draw on their shared approach to looking at the peculiar nature of people and the world. Their sense of irony and humor is a vehicle to allude to a deeper meaning below the surface.

Artist Statement

They plan the work together but never paint at the same time. They draw from an ever -growing image bank of photographs shot and collected from different parts of the country. They have always shared a sense of irony and humor.

MB’s website is www.mbmosk.com. You can also see Marjorie’s individual work at www.marjoriemoskowitz.com and Bob’s individual work at www.bobmoskowitz.com.

Maureen’s goal is to continually look for new ways to challenge herself and express what she feels. That is what inspires her to never reject possibilities in subject matter.

Artist Statement

My techniques are largely self-taught. I am deeply inspired by Ansel Adams and Art Wolfe. My greatest reward comes from developing composites. My work is delivered in an array of styles that arc between passionately abstract and doggedly figurative.

Going on an Adventure: In the Mountains

“I am looking for someone to share in an adventure.”― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit, or There and Back Again

Words that could never be truer, life is an adventure. While I am always sharing my adventure with the same person, our destination is never the same as we travel the United States. Going to State Parks, National Forest, and National Parks. Capturing images from the highest points to the lowest of valleys. These moments are more the memories of a trip here and there, they are moments of these amazing places that people may have forgotten about or that people fail to see at the right time.

The photography process is two-fold, creating images with a vision in my head of what it will look like. Shooting several images at various locations and capturing different details to make sure the moment, light, and shadows are all where I want them. After processing them in the digital darkroom, finishing touches are made and comes the images that are produced.

I seek the natural wonders of the world, taking me to mountains, rivers, and waterfalls from all around. I want people to see the beauty and moment that I capture for everyone. From the lonely flower to the largest mountain peak.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Laurie Snow Hein has been named as the Gallery’s new featured artist and she will now be promoted by the gallery for the next 14 days in the gallery’s Artist Showcase.

Laurie is an award-winning artist based in Florida, USA. Laurie was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 16th Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified her art to be showcased in this feature.

Laurie’s Artist Showcase feature will be promoted to over 350+ major news outlets, with inclusion on Google News & Bing News. In addition, the gallery will also be featuring and promoting her artwork in the gallery’s various social media networks for further exposure.

Below are Laurie’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement and 5 images that were submitted to this competition.

Artist Biography

Laurie Snow Hein has been painting since first grade when she first picked up a paintbrush and watched the bright paint colors dripping down the paper. It was love at first stroke. Her parents had convinced her that is was impossible to make a career as an artist; but, it was in her DNA. Both parents, brother, grandmother were multi-talented in the arts. At age twelve she started studying with Graham Ingels, a retired illustrator, famous for “Tales From the Crypt.” Her high school teacher encouraged her to apply for a scholarship which that she received from Columbus College of Art and Design. She decided to major in Industrial design to be practical. At the end of her first year, Laurie was the first freshmen at CCAD to be awarded the Katherine M. Tuttle Scholarship.

After college, she married considering art as a pass time. Six children later at age 40, she was suddenly in need of supporting her family by herself. Her strength was the arts, portrait painting primarily, so she immediately started advertising to paint portraits. Her garage was converted to a teaching studio. She took a job instructing art in all mediums, teaching at two local country clubs. When her paintings of children and animals were noticed by a national publisher, her career in art licensing and reproductions was launched. God blessed her and provided the opportunities and ability to support her family with artistic talent. Had it not been for the necessity of using her artistic abilities she would have never grown to be the artist she is today.

Working 30 years as a professional artist, teacher, licensed artist, illustrator, showing at art festival circuits, Laurie now shows primarily in Florida. Her subject is concentrated on local landscapes, beaches, botanicals, wildlife. The beauty and variety of God’s creation is all the inspiration needed when exploring the amazing world there is to enjoy. Large paintings making you feel in the moment are her forte. Although very realistic, her brushstrokes are bold, rich with colors, transparent glazing, textures, and energetic. You feel like you could almost step into the painting. The pace was so fast and demanding for many years that there wasn’t time to consider entering competitions for awards. Now at 70 plus there is a focus to share her art more with her peers and enter competitions creating greater value for her many collectors.

Traveling is a passion, while she searches out the heart of locations to paint. In 2019 Laurie traveled across the US on a 90-day trip starting a new collection of artwork representing our National Parks. Contact her directly from her website for originals and commissions or custom made giclee reproductions. Follow her art and videos on Instagram and Facebook and collections on Pinterest.

Artist Statement

The mystique and natural beauty of Florida are the elements that inspire me to bring a canvas to life by capturing a special time of day that is magical. Painting the raw splendor and energy of Florida’s natural environment allows me as an artist to introduce the observer of my artwork to the wonderment I feel when observing God’s craftsmanship. By creating a painting of clouds, ocean, landscape, or birds unique to Florida on canvas, I can bring to life the light and inspiration that makes my work and spirit come alive with beauty, color, emotion. This passion is driven by the desire to create realistic expressions depicting the divine majesty of God’s creations often found only a short drive civilization. It is in quiet places and natural environments, away from crowds, traffic, buildings, that we find peace and inspiration in nature to restore our energy and soul. I paint this tropical paradise to bring it back home for others to savor and enjoy.
