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 and resulted in the selection of the artists who will be featured in individual month-long solo art exhibitions. 

Below is Maureen’s Artist Biography and her Artist Statement, along with 25 of her photographs/digital art. We hope that you will take the time to read her information and to take a look at her work.

Artist Biography

Maureen Ravnik was born and raised in Minnesota. She attended the University of Colorado to pursue a career in sales & marketing. Working and traveling a lot in that discipline 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.

Maureen has placed in the Audubon International Top 250, local, national, international juried photography exhibitions, monthly club competitions, and state park calendars. Her images have been selected for use by the City of Littleton, and National Geographic for publication, as well as several newspapers. She has co-authored 2 books that document the history 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.

Artist Statement

My methods and techniques are largely self-taught. I am deeply inspired by the work of Ansel Adams and Art Wolfe. My work is also derived from my imagination. My greatest satisfaction comes from taking the file from camera to computer to develop composites. The results reflect my personal feelings, beliefs, events, culture, etc. that are best expressed through artistic interpretations. My work is delivered in an array of styles that arc between realism, passionately abstract and doggedly figurative. These diverse styles are represented in my Solo Art Series submission.

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

Brian is an award-winning artist based in Colorado, USA. He was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 25th Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified his art to be showcased in this feature.

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

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

Artist Biography

Brian Binder is mostly a self-taught artist. He was raised in Colorado. In Colorado, you are surrounded by many different environments and animals. From plains to mountains and, yes, even sand dunes Brian’s focus is on wildlife and domestic animals in interesting and beautiful settings. He spends hours creating the soul of the animal through its eyes. The eyes are what gives the drawing it's heart and soul.

Brian usually sees the animal in one habitat and then draws them in a different environment that he thinks they would prefer to be in. Sometimes it is a shock what a drawing turn into because it is opposite of what he thought it might when he started. Brian only uses pencil and color pencils to create his works. He does not use solvents for blending in order not to damage the paper.

Brian hope everyone who views his work feel the enjoyment he gets out creating each piece.

Artist Statement

In my artwork, I try to capture the spirit of the animal. I like to invoke humor, deep thought, or positive vibes through the animal to the viewer.

Brian’s art can be found on his website.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Lorna Beecroft 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.

Lorna is an award-winning artist based in Canada. Lorna was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 21st Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified her art to be showcased in this feature.

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

Artist Biography

Lorna Beecroft has had a life-long joy of creating using fabric, wood, and fiber. Her journey into painting and drawing began in 2016 when she finally had time to immerse herself in these art forms. She has followed her own educational path, gaining experience by attending workshops with world-class artists and through self-directed courses. This combined with hours and hours of practice has taken her to where she is today, with so much more to try out and perfect.

Her favorite mediums are acrylics, oils, graphite, charcoal, conte, pencil crayons, and pastels. Each one has such unique properties and produces wonderfully different outcomes.

Lorna has been an animal lover for as long as she can remember, finding great joy in the company of all animals. So naturally, her favorite subjects are the animals she has spent so many hours with, in particular horses, cats, and dogs. For Lorna, the joy of creating is watching the subject(s) slowly appear out of the canvas or paper as if they have a will and life of their own. She believes the eyes are the mirror into their souls and is only satisfied when the viewer is able to dive into the piece and connect with the true spirit of each animal.

Artist Statement

I love to create & love animals even more. My goal is to have the viewer see animals the way I do, admiring and loving them for their spirit and beauty. I spend many, many hours working on each piece with that hope always foremost.

Lorna’s website is www.lornabeecroftartist.com.
