Dear Esteemed Nominees, Solo Exhibition Members, and Guests,

This coming week, with the 7th Juried Invitational Art Exhibition, presented by the Solo Exhibition group of RedBubble, we celebrate seventy-four artists and works in the digital, traditional, and photographic arts.

A panel of 3 Nominators was challenged to search the 46,000-image gallery, and from that invite select works for exhibition. Nominators were chosen, based on their considerable expertise in one of the three categories from a group that includes Inside Solo Magazine feature writers and artists who have had Solo Exhibitions.

There are 30 Traditional artworks, 26 Photographic works, and 18 Digital artworks in the show, representing 74 artists. Twenty-three 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 Friday, September 24th! The show runs from September 27th through October 3rd, 2010. Awards Day is on Wednesday, September 29th, 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.

We all sometimes wake up in the morning, staring at the mirror and notice not everything is okay. See someone else, and not yourself. Is this an identity crisis ?

I tweaked the color temp. and saturation just slightly on my compaq desk-top computer…..

Perhaps in another place and time, there will be peace, no pain, no illness, perhaps in another place and time we will find and unite with all that had been lost….perhaps we will find “true” freedom.

Art can be viewed much like a dream: when we go to sleep, we do not plan what we will dream. Yet, when we awaken from the dream, sometimes we attempt to psychoanalyze the dream’s meanings and how they relate to our lives

The Rescue
by Anna Shaw

Digital Art
Dimensions: 4961px x 3508px @ 300 pixels/inc ( 42cmX 29.7 cm)
Software: Photoshop

I wanted to create a powerful and moody image, which told a dramatic story. In all my work, light plays an important part, and here it was essential for the drama inherent in the scene.

This was probably the most demanding image I have ever created, in terms of sheer complexity and degree of difficulty.

The image was been created totally in Photoshop, and all photos used were from my own photo stock.

Rays Of Hope
by George Lenz

Photographic Art
Carefree, Arizona, U.S.A.
Canon 50D, no tripod (I supported the camera on a rock),
ISO 100, f8, 1/250, 4000 × 2667, 300 DPI

They say every cloud has a silver lining. Must be true. Took this sunset shot on 06-30-2010 with my Canon 50D in Carefree Arizona, USA. We were staying in a resort and just got done with dinner. On the way back to the resort I noticed that the sunset was very close and it looked like to was going to be a good one. So I had to hurry and get in the right spot in which there was minutes to set up and take the shot. I snapped about 6 shots and this was one of them. Did very little touch up to this RAW image in CS3 and used the Flood filter to give it a nice glow.

Has you ever censored or have been censored? Two sides of the same coin. It´s just about that_ and their respective consequences.

Main figures are Daz M4 which were morphed and texturized within Cinema 4D; postworked in Photoshop.

Photographic Art
Sony a350, Sigma 17-70@20mm,
f/18, 1/13sec, ISO-100;
RAW Processed in LightRoom3
My own textures added in PS3

This windmill (in Biggekerke, The Netherlands) was built in 1712 by the town of Vlissingen and was originally being leased for 7-year periods. The Olbertijn family bought the mill from the town in 1792 and it was subsequently sold In 1852 to Mr. Brasser. It has stayed in the Brasser family since then, and now Adrie Brasser and his son Sjaak are the sixth and seventh generation that upholds the tradition of wind milling.

I must admit, that it’s the first time that I have seen a working mill in action, so I pushed the shutter speed as low as I could get away with (handheld), to capture the movement of the blades. It was late afternoon on a very grey and overcast day, so I decided to go for a more vintage, textured look, representative of the mill’s history.

DaVinci Inspired Beauty
by Tahnja

Traditional Art
Acrylic on flat canvas board
7 × 5 inches

This painting was a a turning point in my studies of impressionism and limited palette work.
As with many other artists, I have always loved the great art masters of old and wanted the feeling of that old style in this piece.

There’s no indepth meaning behind this painting but it’s special to me because it began my understanding and appreciation for simpler colours that are easier on the eye of both artist and viewer.
