        Art Gallery Announces Cheryl Rau as New Featured Artist
      Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is very pleased to announce that fine art
             photographer Cheryl Rau is the gallery's newest featured artist.

                                       Jupiter, FL, USA (August 15, 2013) -- Light Space & Time
                                       Online Art Gallery is very pleased to announce that fine art
                                       photographer Cheryl Rau is the gallery's newest featured
                                       artist. Cheryl Rau is a mid-life emerging artist who lives on
                                       the Southern Coast of Maine. Since 2010, her work as a
                                       documentary/fine art photographer has been selected for
                                       numerous regional, national, and international exhibitions.
                                       Key elements of her style are vibrant colors and
                                       movement, as much of her work explores the ideas of
                                       impermanence and transformation.

                                       Cheryl found her passion for photography in her 40s when
                                       she purchased her first SLR camera. She explored a wide
                                       range of subjects and genres including landscapes,
                                       architecture, portraits of people with their pets, and
documentary photo essays. During this developmental stage, she also began shooting a series of
abstract images of reflections on water for fun, as she roamed around the working waterfront in
Portland, Maine with her camera.

As a self-taught artist, she continues to create new images for the "Water Colors" series and has
developed several new bodies of work during the past three years. Earlier this year while
recovering from cornea transplant surgery on her right eye (the one that sees through the camera
viewfinder) and unable to see well enough to shoot for several months, she began experimenting
with digital collage as a way to create new art by combining multiple images shot in past years.

Cheryl has held professional positions in marketing and communications, event management, and
training. She is a graduate of the photography program at the Salt Institute for Documentary
Studies (Portland, ME). She earned a bachelor of arts in Journalism & Communications from
Point Park College (Pittsburgh, PA). Originally from Pennsylvania, Cheryl lived in the Washington,
DC area for 15 years prior to relocating to the Maine coast. Cheryl's website is
