The gallery’s exhibition for December 2023 is the 13th Annual “Nature” Online Art Exhibition. Both 2D and 3D, artists, from around the world, were asked for their interpretation of the “Nature” theme by submitting their best abstract and/or representational art.

The gallery received 470 entries from 26 different countries from 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 January 2022, please visit our LST Archives website.

Artist Biography

Jaimie is a lens based interdisciplinary artist. Her work is rooted in place in a spiritual way within the natural world. She also studies nature through still life botanicals. Currently exploring digital with edited and some composited images, she prints the images on special papers, then further manipulates with hand-coloring, painting, and sometimes encaustics. The results are often described as ethereal. Whether representational or abstract, she seeks the little mysteries found when light models on forms and color.

Jaimie has a long use photography of traditional film and silver gelatin, Cyanotype, Van Dyke, Photograms, photo manipulations, infrared, and other alternative processes. As a fine art major, she began exploring hand tinting, coloring, and painting of photographs with oils, pencils, and water based media. She used 35 mm, 2 1/4 x 21/4, and toy cameras. Her work is archival; made with materials for longevity. She has been in many galleries, press, and venues. Pieces are in private, public, and corporate collections. All pieces are in limited editions of 10 or 15 in one or more sizes.

Jaimie was born in Ohio, and has lived in a variety of places in many states, The Netherlands, and Gabon in Africa. She earned a BFA from University of Montana with a certificate to teach. She has been an art educator in Houston for 30 years.

Artist Statement

Where Land Meets Sea

Rushing onto the land, then retreating back into the sea, tides are at once both constant and ever-changing. The water shapes the shorelines into a surprising and beautiful place of discovery. As a Thalassophile, a lover of the sea: I long for the eternally rhythmic and mesmerizing sounds at the water’s edge and draw healing strength from their energy.

Wandering the beaches, berms, and beyond, I search for revelations in the natural shorelines. I find relationships between the depth of the sea and our deep inner beliefs. Focusing on natural environments, looking for mystery, I am creating the visualization of my dreams.

In order to better convey the mystical, I print my images on archival hot press natural and Japanese papers. I embellish with hand-colored oil pencils, pan and stick dry pastels, and other media. In building layers of color, I try to reflect the deep and ageless stirrings of the sea.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is very pleased to announce that Christopher Forslund has been selected as one of the four winning artists of the gallery’s recent 22nd “Solo Art Series” Art Competition.  He will now have a month-long solo art exhibition and he will be featured on the gallery’s front page, in the Gallery’s YouTube Channel, as well as in the “Solo Art Series” Archives.

Christopher Forslund is an internationally acclaimed, award-winning photographer based in South Dakota, USA. He 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 gallery’s broad social media network.

In addition, as part of his award package, Christopher will also be featured on the gallery’s YouTube Channel and with an event postcard.

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 22nd “Solo Art Series” Art Competition that the gallery has conducted.

Below are Christopher’s Artist Biography, his Artist Statement, along with 18 of his photographs.  We hope that you will take the time to read Christopher’s information and to take a look at his beautiful photographs.

Artist Biography

Christopher grew up in the rural, coastal mountains of California where he fell in love with the outdoors, photography, and the arts. From his early involvement with the Boy Scouts, through his law enforcement career, and then as a touring professional musician and now as a full time RVer, he has had the opportunity to travel, explore and capture much of this nation’s beauty though the art photography.

Artist Statement

There is so much more to capturing an image than just the technical aspects of photography. I strongly believe that an image can speak to the heart and when I am capturing an image, I attempt to use the existing light and color to convey the emotion that I feel in that moment. I truly desire to harness strong emotion through my images. I am drawn to our Nations beauty and am always excited when I have the opportunity to capture and share a new image.

Christopher’s work can be viewed on his website.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Maureen Ravnik 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.

Maureen is an award-winning photographer based in Colorado, USA. Maureen was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 22nd Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified her art to be showcased in this feature.

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

Artist Biography

Maureen Ravnik was born in Minnesota. After attending college in Colorado, she stayed and never looked back. Working and traveling opened her eyes to the wonders of the American west and reawakened childhood tendencies to creatively document her discoveries. She began making images of the American west in hopes of preserving the history, the culture, and the dreams that shaped the west. Today, Maureen’s time is spent outdoors capturing the scenery, wildlife, and exploring other methods for interpreting and sharing what she sees and experiences along the way.

Maureen has accomplished many things with her photography including images placed in the Audubon International Top 250, local, national and international juried photography exhibitions, winning placements in monthly club competitions, state park calendars, images selected for use by the City of Littleton, Colorado, and many images selected as editor picks on National Geographic and for publication. Her work has been the subject of several newspapers. She has co-authored 2 books that document the history, beauty and environment of the second largest natural area in the country. Maureen has also served as a juror for the Tri-Lakes Center for the Arts in Colorado.

Maureen’s goal is to continually look for new ways to challenge herself. 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 work is delivered in an array of styles that arc between passionately abstract and doggedly figurative.
