Dear Esteemed Nominees, Solo Exhibition Members, and Guests,

Monday, June 25th, with the opening of the 16th Juried Invitational Art Exhibition, presented by the Solo Exhibition group of RedBubble, we celebrate seventy-four (74) artists, representing fourteen (14) countries, and exhibiting one-hundred and twenty-five (125) photographs and artworks along the theme of “Landscape and Light”. The show highlights light in the landscape,through photographic, digital, and traditional fine art works from the esteemed Solo community.

Solo hosts invited select works for exhibition along the theme. Twenty-three of the exhibits are works selected from a companion Landscape and Light workshop, where traditional and digital artists took inspiration and reference from a catalog of fine photographs along the theme of the show. These reference works are noted in the exhibition, by a linked thumbnail image, crediting the originator. Two photographs created during the workshop are also featured in the exhibition.

Out of the 125 entries in the juried exhibition, there are 55 Traditional artworks, 50 Photographic works, and 18 Digital artworks, from some 74 artists. Exhibitors have from 1 to 3 works in the show.

Judges will award 1st – 3rd places in the Traditional Art, Digital Art, and Photographic Art categories. The artwork with the highest score, over all categories, will be awarded “Best in Show”, besides a category first place. Judges will also make special merit awards.

The show runs from June 25th through July 8th, 2012. Awards Day is Tues, July 3rd, starting at 10 AM, New York time (Midnight Tues/Wed. Melbourne) (see world clock link, below).

You might also be interested in a companion link to the Landscape and Light Workshop – Show & Tell. Artists who participated in the optional workshop were encouraged to discuss how they produced their artwork, and show their work in progress. This area will continue to build as more of the artists document their artistic journey.

The workshop schedule for Solo’s 2012 season is posted. All Redbubble artists and the public are welcome. You will need to sign up for Redbubble and Solo Exhibition group membership to participate.

Congratulations to all! And thank you for coming to the exhibition and supporting these wonderful artists.

Each month of the Solo season, all of the members of the Solo Exhibition group have the opportunity for one or more of their works to be selected for a “SoJie” (Solo’s Juried Invitational Exhibition). To qualify, a member has to have joined the group at least in the calendar month prior to the current show. If you would like to be considered for next month’s show, which will focus on portraits, join now!

Your comments on the art are welcome. Comments begin following the exhibits; on page 7.

Respectfully,

F.A. Moore, Solo Founder and host

Maha Ganesh Top
by RajeevKashyap

Photographic Art
Location: Maha Ganesh Top, 2010
Canon 40D
Lens Canon 17-85mm.

This location is called Maha Ganesh Top. On the entire route for Amarnath Yatra all the names of mountain peaks are named after deities of the family of Lord Shiva. Approximate height of this place is over 14500 feet above sea level. Dipping mercury and oxygen levels makes it hard for people to breath there. But the place is so beautiful that one doesn’t feel disheartened. After all faith in God always help, the pilgrims claim. This route is open till August 9 . On the day of Rakhi festival this route will be closed for pilgrims and other tourists.

This image is my Amarnath Yatra 2010 during Trip.

Karijini National Park in the Pilbara region of Western Australia is a stunningly beautiful place with strong Aboriginal history and spirituality. This photo was taken standing near Oxer Lookout, looking back over Knox Gorge. I was captivated by the colour of the white bark of the ghostgum against the green spinifex and the vivid red earth.

After the sun went over the horizon, these white sand dunes (near Cervantes in Western Australia) went though an incredible colour-show, transforming through white and pink and mauve to peachy-apricot before finally fading into the darkness….

On a glorious evening in Karijini National Park (Western Australia), I sat on a rocky outcrop and watched as the shadow of the hill beneath me ascended the spinifex-clad hillside opposite me. When the sun is setting, it pays to look behind you…
