All works in the show are nominated works, invited after a selection process by Solo’s board.

First through Third places in the Traditional Art, Digital Art, and Photographic Art categories, will be awarded, based on the total of Judges’ scores. 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 August 27th through September 8th, 2012. Awards Day will be in September 4th, at noon New York time, when an interactive ceremony is held in the virtual exhibition space.

Please accept our invitation to also visit the Abstract Workshop – Show & Tell.

Our free September workshop is on the Human Form. (workshop schedule for Solo’s 2012 season) Hope you will be brave and join in the fun and challenge of working “live” in the virtual workshop environment.

A Sense Of Music
by Kymie

Photographic Art

Canon EOS 1000D
18-55mm lens

A capture of shot glasses on my black glass table.
Looking for something a little different I rotated and used the motion blur in PS.
I think it reminds me of guitar strings, and the colours represent the music.

One Gardener's Dream
by F.A. Moore

Digital Art

Digital Multi-Medium Modern Abstract
8000 × 5333 px @300ppi

Digital composition of multi-media art includes personal items of: old B&W photo of the artist, scanned garden gloves, a pencil and watercolor study for an oil painting of the artist’s-designed garden for her sister, and various drawings done in the online HTML5 drawing app, Sketchy. On the art description page, there are detailed closeups of the texture and various elements, with a little map showing where those details are located on this large work.

The large galaxy-like abstract is a modification of the complete image shown as a small inset at its fulcrum. Elements in the small work are outsized in the galaxy, and simulate dreams which expand and contract, when sections are played repeatedly in one’s head, as the mind attempts to understand.

Inspiration – dreaming of gardens and landscapes, walking garden paths, and the rain that makes them lush.

Light Years
by Elizabeth Bravo

Traditional Art

Acrylic on deep canvas
36 × 12 in.

I took a lot of time with this….a little bit here and more there, a work that took most of the winter of 2011-2012 to complete. I often work in washes to let the paint fall and add textures. This worked quite well here. It is often difficult for me to achieve that balance of muted tones and vibrant, but I think my patience in working on this paid off. It turned out exactly as I had planned.

Falls of Love
by Lynn Moore

Traditional Art

Watercolor
A “pour” of liquid watercolor on watercolor paper (Robert Doak paint)
9 X 9 in.

I had never done a “pour” before and so I was pleasantly surprised by the result of this first attempt. I probably didn’t even do it “right” as I am self-taught. l held the bottle of yellow paint at the top of the paper (holding the paper upright) and just poured it out and let it drip down. Then did the same thing with the green paint, only started pouring a little to the right and finished pouring with the white.. I sprayed water when I wanted it to drip more. I used a brush and water to wash the yellow and green paint so the whole paper would be covered.

Urban sleep : fall into my dream
by Adam Bogusz

Traditional Art

Medium – Acrylic on board

Size – 40cm by 28 cm

Notes – This piece was created with no initial planning or drawing. I’m always looking to surprise myself when I paint and try to avoid falling into a style that traps me. The title and meaning for me was something that came at the very end of the process. I never try to explain my artworks. When I see something in nature that i enjoy [a flower, waterfall] I don’t need to understand it to enjoy it. In the same way I don’t feel it’s necessary to explain a piece of art for the viewer to have an emotional response.
