Dear Esteemed Nominees, Solo Exhibition Members, and Guests,

This week, with the 5th Juried Invitational Art Exhibition, presented by the Solo Exhibition group of RedBubble, we celebrate sixty-two artists and sixty-five works in the digital, traditional, and photographic arts.

A panel of 3 Nominators was challenged to search the 39,000-image gallery, and from that, invite select works for exhibition. Nominators were chosen, based on their considerable expertise in one of the three categories.

There are 24 Traditional, 22 Photographic, and 19 Digital works in the show, representing 62 artists. Three artists each have two works exhibited, having been invited by two different nominators. Twenty-two countries are represented in this truly international show, including two that represent “homeland”, but not current residence.

Judges will award 1st – 3rd places in each of Digital, Traditional, and Photographic Arts. The work with the highest score will be awarded Best in Show, besides a category first place. Judges will also make special merit awards.

The exhibit is open to comments as of Monday, July 26th! The show runs July 26th through August 1st, 2010. Awards Day is on Wednesday, July 28th, around noon, New York time (see world clock link, below).

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

Each month, 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.

Cactus super macro

Photographic Art
Fujifilm HS10 on the “Super Macro” setting
Shutter speed 1/640
Aperture f6.4

Brand new Fujifilm HS10 camera set on the "Super Macro setting. Uncropped and pretty much straight from the camera as I’m trying to see what kind of prints this camera is capable of producing.

Opened RAW in Silkypix, saved to JPEG and sized in Elements 7. (I haven’t learned anything about working in Silkypix yet, but that’s the only RAW converter for this camera so far.)

This is one of my very early pieces taken Aug 2009. Since I’m always a “bubble off level” I was shooting this (Tucson, AZ neighborhood) house on the angle while others were taking it’s lovely front facade. I’ve been delighted by bubblers’ response to this shot. I like the “stacked boards” of the walls going up to the house and the delightful array of colors.

Although this started out trying to be a self-portrait, the end result looks a bit different. Me perhaps in a former life?

Feeder Fireworks
by Brian Pelkey

Photographic Art
Adirondack Park in Upstate, NY
Camera – Canon EOS Rebel T1i –
Canon Zoom Lens EF 70-300mm 1:4 – 5.6 IS
1/400 s – f/5.60 – ISO 400
Software Used – Photoshop CS4

The photo was taken at one of several lakeside birdfeeders I maintain to attract wildlife here at my home in the Adirondack Park in Upstate, NY. To the dismay of the chipmunks and birds, the red squirrels take ownership and will occupy a feeder for long periods of time. Sometimes another red squirrel will wait his turn, but soon start to vocalize in protest. If this continuous scolding doesn’t work, a “rumble” is sure to follow!

Digital Art
original drawing in mechanical pencil on aquarelle archers paper
photographed and painted in Photoshop using only the mouse
best described as “tradigital art” 27 hours total

Original pencil drawing on Aquarelle Arches paper 56 × 76cm
Drawing 15 hours/painting 12 hours = 27 hours total

A digitally painted hand drawn artwork… the inspiration for this is “Meeting Places”…

As a child one of the most frequent things we did together as a family was to attend church on Sundays, I went to a Catholic School and the church I remember best was St Agnes’ at Port Macquarie… the nuns would come over for morning tea sometimes, and the priests would come for dinner occasionally…they were the days of fun parish picnics and life that wasn’t so hurried..when we took time to socialise, meeting and enjoying one another’s company.

Mum was/is a great cook and host…and although this picture isn’t authentic as a portrait of her and myself…it’s representative.

It’s also representative of new life and hope for the future, as the mother figure is with child….. and the child herself nurtures the wildlife…perhaps she is taking them to church for a blessing… perhaps the joey has lost his mother and needs nursing til he can fend for himself.

The kookaburra is all seeing and all knowing….. the wise overseer of the bush… in this case, he stands in as the owl figure.

Mousehole Harbour 2
by Paul Thompson Photography

Photographic Art
Canon 5D Mk2
ISO 100
-2, 0, +2

Mousehole – a picturesque fishing village in a beautiful setting. Like Newlyn and Penzance sacked by a Spanish raiding party in July 1595 when the whole village except one house was burnt to the ground. That house, Squire Keigwins, whose owner lost his life defending it, is now the oldest remaining. A hundred years ago it was a bustling place, with the harbour crowded with fishing boats, landing locally caught pilchards, destined to be packed into barrels.

Red on Amethyst and Opal
by F.A. Moore

Digital Art
January 10, 2010
Dimensions: 6000×6000 px @300ppi
Software: PS/E6, Corel Painter/E4, and PS/E1
About: Abstraction of various sections and elements of other original artworks by the artist.

Some of those original works incorporated credited stock, by now, abstracted beyond recognition.

“My Soul” lies beneath – a work you may never see,
peeking out from below what I paint to represent me.
— F.A. Moore, Jan. 10, 2010

Amethyst: a reflection of my past, thoughts of the quartz geode from my great, great grandfather— a history-teacher, geological explorer, and international tour company founder. I’ve always been in love with that “rock”, although uncut Amethyst is not uncommon.

Opal: a reflection of my future, here shown as the milky bluish to greenish variety, which may or may not be of gemstone quality. Nevertheless, I prefer its lack of “play of color”, despite it being more common.

Red: representing a vibrant life, filled with people and events, and gifts given and received; made to reflect other colors I hold dear, because they are the clothing of God, revealed to us in nature.

Thirty Ninth Summer
by Cynthia Lund Torroll

Traditional Art
Pencil on paper (unknown) drawing
image size: 7.5” wide x 10” high

Well, I don’t know that I can recall that far back anymore – as I did this during my thirty ninth summer here on this planet – influenced heavily (think steal!) by the Sir Jones at the Tate.

Ah, such a sad little story going on in this tangle. Maybe I was having another pity party…

Most likely!

Original taken… at 9pm on a crisp Spring evening on Moulin Moor, 2 miles west of Pitlochry, Perthshire, Scotland. This was a series of 25 shots of various views taken as the mist swirled and curled down the river valley, the cloud and light changing every second.

Processed through Picasa 3 ( cropped, and tuned) before processing through Dynamic Pro HDR to achieve the look I wanted.

Guiding Lights

An uncommon fog filled the bay this morning, there was no wind. A shaft of the early morning sun caught on the guide posts lighting up the channelway into the jetty. The only sound was from the herons and oyster catchers fossicking for breakfast on the flats

Lake Lane

iso400 manual

Lake Lane, Copper Lake, just outside of the town of the famous, or some might say infamous, Woodstock, NY, is a beautiful lake . Copper Lake has magic light that surrounds you the moment you enter the tiny lane that runs along Copper Lake’s curves. Mornings are my favorite there. Lake Lane captures just one moment of beauty of the place, as fog and mist rolled and settled along the lane and lake.
