Dear Esteemed Nominees, Solo Exhibition Members, and Guests,

We’re officially open on Monday, August 26, 2013, when Solo Exhibition presents the 23rd Juried Invitational Art Exhibition, celebrating sixty-three (63) artists, representing over fourteen countries, exhibiting 71 artworks and photographs, in its publicly accessible member space on RedBubble, and also on its dot.com.

All works in the show are nominated works, invited after a selection process by a special group of honored members of Solo Exhibition. Some works which were nominated, but did not enter in time for judging, may be shown in the SoJie 23 Annex, on page 4, following the main entries. We treat these works with the same honor and respect as those which made it in time for our jury’s consideration.

Placement Awards

First through Third places and Honors in the Traditional Art, Digital Art, and Photographic Art categories, will be awarded, based on the total of ALL Judges’ scores. The artwork with the highest score, over all categories, will be awarded “Best in Show”, besides a category first place. Honors awards are give to all non-placing works which are in the top scoring tier over all categories and works in the show. Judges will also make special merit awards.

Scoring is done individually by each judge, from within a special application created by the Founder, which allows the judges to contemplate each full size work while scoring it. However, the process of tallying and calculating placement and honors awards is automated, and generally involves no human intervention. Not even the judges can be sure of the outcome, until the Awards Day ceremony.

Awards Day will be on Friday, August 30, at 11 AM, New York time. (<< click for the worldclock time in your city) The interactive awards ceremony is held in the virtual exhibition space on RedBubble, with a party afterwards, for all who are awake! Virtual drink and no-calorie goodies will be served, to celebrate a great show.

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

Your comments on the art are welcome. Comments begin following the exhibits; on page 5.

Respectfully,

F.A. Moore, Solo Founder and host

Hindu Pilgrims on New Year's Day
by Valerie Rosen

Photographic Art
Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India;
Nikon D7000; 1/60 / f/4 ISO 100 @ 70mm

A crowd of Indian Hindu pilgrims are squished into long lines, waiting with great anticipation to enter the revered Sri Meenakshi Temple in Madurai on New Year’s Day. Believers travelled from all over India to be able to do their New Year’s prayers in this Hindu temple. I was just about pinching myself with good fortune over how excited and encouraging they were to have me capture them in that breathtaking New Year’s morning light.
