Dear Esteemed Nominees, Solo Exhibition Members, and Guests,

This coming week, with the 6th Juried Invitational Art Exhibition, presented by the Solo Exhibition group of RedBubble,
we celebrate sixty-three artists and sixty-five works in the digital, traditional, and photographic arts.

A panel of 3 Nominators was challenged to search the 43,000-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 20 Traditional artworks, 20 Photographic works, and 25 Digital artworks in the show,
representing 63 artists. Two artists each have two works exhibited, having been invited by two different nominators.
Seventeen countries are represented in this international art exhibition.

Judges will award 1st – 3rd places in each of Digital Art, Traditional Art, and Photographic Art.
The artwork 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, August 30th. The JURIED, INVITATIONAL ART SHOW
runs from August 30th through September 5th, 2010. Awards Day is on Wednesday, September 1st,
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.

Chambers Of My Heart
by Magpie Magic

Digital Art
Dimensions: 3543 × 4724 (30×40cm @ 300dpi)
Medium: Photo manipulation
Software: Photoshop;
Stock by various artists plus my own textures and images

This image illustrates the poem of the same name. Both are about the secret rooms in our heart, where we go to grieve, to ponder, to regenerate, to remember, or just to be, and maybe there are one or two where we lock the door so we may never see them again. The rooms may look different for each person, but we all have them…

From 1944 to the early 50’s thousands of Japanese women fell in love with servicemen, married and started new lives in alien countries.

It must have been an incredible struggle to leave their extended families, friends, country and merge into a new culture.

Elusive Fountain of Peace
by Debi Peralta

Digital Art
Dimensions: 5200 X 3466 px @300 dpi
Medium: Fractal
Software: Apophysis 7X- my own gradient; Photoshop 7.0

Composed and rendered with Apophysis 7X. My own gradient. Only very slight hue and contrast value adjustments done with Photoshop 7.0.

An esoteric fountain depicting a solution for world peace sits in a vast expanse with a war looming in the horizon.

As a child of the 60s I have always known war. I remember thinking the CBS Evening News was the Vietnam War show. Throughout my life I have been puzzled that groups will escalate disagreement to killing one another when peace seems to me to be such an easy solution. When I read of Jimmy Carter’s visits at summits with warring factions and his simple formulas for reaching agreement I become frustrated that peace seems to elude us.

I always try to convey to the viewer the emotion that I felt when I created the piece. It does not matter if the viewer feels good or bad about the art…as long as the viewer “feels” something. When that happens, I know that I’ve accomplished my goal as an artist.

This is the 4th in the narrative 11 work series titled COMA. The work is created in sequence as the events flowered over an irrepressible 8 months.

She was still involved with her old boyfriend and was not necessarily honest with me…the title are my thoughts on the subject.

Time Traveller
by Ron Moss

Digital Art
Dimensions: 40 × 40 cm
Medium: Mixed— Tradigital (traditional and digital). Digital blending of photos, scanned items, watercolours
Software: Photoshop CS5

I started by working with an abstract watercolour I had previously painted; it was scanned and left in colour. I worked with it in an abstract way reversing the image to create a mirror effect. The idea of a mist lake came into being and I set about adding elements from photographs until I had reached a composition that I was happy with. I then added a glass plate scan for framing effects and then used a combination of workflows to take it to a monochrome image. I have worked this way a lot recently merging paint and photography in the digital realm and I enjoy the process and what is has to offer very much.

Under the Mediterranean Sun
by Tom Furey

Digital Art
Subject: Vernazza, Cinque Terre region, Ligurian Coast, Italy
Dimensions: 4800 × 4800 px (24 × 24 in.) @ 200ppi
Medium: Digital painting
Software: ArtRage 3

I’m a regular (cyber) visitor to the Mediterranean in my paintings. I just love their light, colours and textures, as well as the glorious architectural mishmash of them…this one is Vernazza, in the Cinque Terre region of the Ligurian Coast in Italy. Had a bit of a play with the perspective here, exaggerating the verticals lines to make it appear the buildings were reaching up to the sun.

I originally wrote a poem Paper Boat Tears which in turn inspired my painting

by karin

Tomorrow when I wake
I am starting something new
I will make some paper boats
and ready them for you
I want my tears to be
with the fishes in the sea
with the whales and leviathans
and the dolphins who are free
I am building paper boats
like little funeral pyres
to contain from here my tears
and send them out for miles
Once the boats are soakeded
with my tears all splashed upon them
I’ll stand at waters edge
and send them out onto the ocean
then part of me has melded
with the deep blue open places
and the peace that comes from letting go
will heal me down the ages
Next I’ll dream the whale
has met me in the sea
that he understands my sorrows
and sing songs to comfort me
so tears now do flow freely
upon my paper boats
and help me send my sorrows
on the origami floats
And where the whale is leaping
deep blue waters are my tears
and when the dolphins gather
I have shared with them my cares

this poem is now a SONG called PAPER BOATS :) Click over to the image description page for the link and more information on the song. [ed.]
