LST gallery will promote and post on Artsy.net the winning artists. The LST Artsy.net page will feature 4 pieces of the artist's winning 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.
Winning artists for each month 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.
Winning artists will also have their art exhibition results posted and promoted on artweek.com. Artweek produces 800,000 page impressions per month, 280,000 website visitors per month and has 30,000 newsletter subscribers.
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 juried into the "Solo" Art Exhibition Series should result in an increase in visitor traffic to the artist’s website as well.
The winning images will be seen by an international audience of gallery directors, art collectors and art consultants. The winning entries will be featured on the Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery website for one month and then remain in the gallery’s Archives for 5 years.
By having their work on the LST website, winning artists should increase exposure to their work, enhance their professional resume and create high quality backlink to their own website.
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, Event Postcard, and Press Release for their art portfolio.

The competitive process will encompass not only the quality and depth of the artist’s artwork but will also include an evaluation of the overall presentation of the artist’s biography and artist’s statement as included in the entry package. The purpose of this competition from the gallery’s point-of-view to judge the artists who have a complete “Body of Work” to show.
The requirement of a complete entry package creates an opportunity for the artist to craft and or to polish their current artist statement and artist biography.
Amateur or professional 2D and 3D artists (including photography) with or without prior group or solo art exhibition experience are encouraged to submit their entries to the Solo Art Series. Any art that was previously entered and shown on the Light Space & Time website may also be entered for the Solo Art Series.
Artists provide us with your "Body of Work” before the deadline of September 5, 2017. Thank you and good luck!
