September 1st, 2015 - Green Cove Springs, FL
Artist Dielle Ciesco has been recognized for her abstract work titled "Flags" in the "Open" art competition hosted by Light Space & Time. Artists worldwide were asked to submit their best representational or abstract artworks on any subject matter for the chance to be exhibited in September. Ciesco received Special Merit out of 734 entries from 19 different countries from around the world, including Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Mexico, Scotland, Saint Maarten, Singapore, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the United Kingdom. In addition, the gallery received entries from 34 different states and the District of Columbia.
Light Space & Time defines its Special Merit Category as one whose exceptional pieces could easily have been included in the upper tier of winners, in many cases being interchangeable with any of the best art awarded. This recognition is Ciesco's 3rd in 2015.
The Special Merit awards are being selected from both media categories. We have always stated that we thought that there were many entries in this category that could easily be considered for the top tier and this is our way to recognize these artists, along with their outstanding art.
