Here is a link to the 2016 Open (No Theme) Art Exhibition in order to help artists see what type of art was accepted in the past. Please review our article post which explains the Judging Criteria for Our Juried Art Competitions in order to help you as a guide with your entry submissions.
Early Registration - Discounted Entry Fee

The discounted entry fees are as follows; $12.00 for 1 to 2 entries and $22.00 for 3 to 5 entries. On the 1st of the following month the entry fees will revert to the gallery's normal entry fee amount or $15.00 for 1 to 2 entries and $25.00 for 3 to 5 entries until the deadline of this art competition. Artists should take advantage of this early registration and discounted entry fee period.

Winning artists (10 Overall Category Artists) of the 2017 “Open” Art Exhibition will be promoted extensively by the gallery in the following manner;
LST gallery will promote and post on Artsy.net the winning artists. The LST Artsy.net page will feature the artist’s art and their website URL’s as part of the gallery’s overall prize package.
Artsy.net averages 2 million visitors a month and 46% of Artsy users who have purchased art via Artsy started out as art enthusiasts rather than preexisting collectors. By having their artwork placed and marketed on Artsy.net, LST artists will have a distinct advantage in terms of exposure, marketing and SEO of their art through the Light Space & Time/Artsy.net gallery partnership.
The top 10 winning artists for each exhibition will be promoted and circulated to over 1000+ News Outlets, Premium FOX, CBS, NBC, CW Affiliated Sites, 500 TV & Radio Sites, 250 Regional & Industry Sites and Social Media Inclusion through Kjprnews.com.
The LST Gallery website averages 70,000+ visitors and more than 225,000+ page views per month. Out of those visitors, 80% are new visitors to the website. Being a winning overall category artist should result in an increase in visitor traffic to the artist’s website as well.
In addition to the above, these winning artists of this exhibtion will receive extensive worldwide publicity in the form of email marketing, event announcements and wide-spread social media marketing and promotion to make the art world aware of the artists’ solo art exhibition.
There will also be a video of the winning artists’ artworks on the Light Space & Time YouTube Channel. In addition, there will also be links back to the artists’ website as part of this achievement package. Winning artists also receive a digital Award Certificate, digital Award Ribbon, digital Event Postcard, and Press Release for their art portfolio.
Artists provide us with your best representational or abstract art before the deadline.
