The gallery’s competition for December 2019 was the 9th Annual “All Women” Online Art Competition. 2D and 3D, women artists only, (including photography & digital art) from around the world, were called upon to make online submissions for possible inclusion in to the Gallery’s January 2020 online group art exhibition.

This art competition had an open theme and was for women artists only. The submission process and competition for the artists began in November 2019 and concluded on December 27, 2019.

The gallery received 1047 entries from 34 different countries from around the world, as well as from 35 different states and the District of Columbia.   

The exhibition has been divided into three media categories.  Painting & Other Media, Photography & Digital and 3 Dimensional Art categories.  In addition, there is an overall Winning Artists Category, which is the “best of the best” and consists of the ten (10) 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.

To view the artwork in each media category, click on a thumbnail image and that will take you to the Slide Show, which will then contain larger images. Artists can now post their images directly to their social media networks (See lower left-hand side of the Lightbox).  In order to leave the Slide Show at any time, just click on the X at the upper right side of the Lightbox in order to escape and that will take you back to the thumbnails images.

All winning entries will now be featured on the Light Space & Time website for the month of January 2020. Thereafter, the artworks and links to the artist’s websites will remain online in the Light Space & Time Archives.

Congratulations to our artists who made our 9th Annual “All Women” 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.
