Congratulations to Kimberly Case, whose work "The Bell" was accepted into the Light Space Time’s “555 Special” Art Exhibition in the Photography & Digital Special Recognition Category. You can view it at https://www.lightspacetime.art/555-special-art-exhibition-2021-photography-digital-category/
The gallery’s “Summer Special” competition was the 3rd Annual “5 Dollars, 5 Entries, 5 Winners” Online Art Competition. This art competition featured an entry fee of $5.00 for artists to enter 5 images of their artworks and the gallery would select 5 overall winning artists.
2D and 3D artists (including photography & digital art) from around the world, were called upon to make online submissions for possible inclusion into the Gallery’s “555 Special” summer online group art exhibition.
Artists were asked to submit to this open (no theme) competition by providing the gallery with their best abstract or representational art for this competition. The gallery received 1,437 entries from 31 different countries from around the world, as well as from 37 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 five (5) 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.
