The gallery’s exhibition for October 2023 is the 7th Annual “Patterns, Textures & Forms” Online Art Exhibition. Both 2D and 3D, artists, from around the world, were asked for their interpretation of the “Patterns, Textures & Forms” theme by submitting their best abstract and/or representational art.

The gallery received 448 entries from 20 different countries from around the world, as well as from 31 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.

Congratulations to our artists who made our 7th Annual “Patterns, Textures & Forms” 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. Scroll down the page to each section to see the artists accepted into the exhibition.
