The Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is pleased to announce the winning artists of the gallery’s recent 22nd “Solo Art Series” Art Competition.
The “Solo Art Series” competition closed on September 5, 2022. 12 artists were selected as finalists. From that selection, 4 artists were chosen to receive individual month-long solo art exhibitions. The remaining 8 artists were awarded Artist Showcase features.
The "Solo Art Series" took place within an extremely competitive atmosphere. The task of selecting only four top winning artists from the 64 artists who entered was extremely challenging. The high quality of submissions made creating the final rankings extraordinarily difficult.
The competitive process considered not only the quality and depth of the artist’s work but also the overall entry presentation, including the artist’s biography and artist’s statement. The following are the 4 winning "Solo Series Artists" and the schedule of their solo art exhibitions.
