Fusion Art is pleased to announce the opening of the 2nd Annual “Animal Kingdom” International Online Art Exhibition for the month of May 2017. The exhibition is now available for viewing on the Fusion Art website.

The 2nd Annual “Animal Kingdom” exhibition opened on May 1st and featured awards in two categories: Traditional Art and Digital Art & Photography.

For this competition artists and photographers, were encouraged to share their artistic vision and interpretation of animals, both domestic and wild. The theme included any art or photography which depicted any animals that live on land, in the sea or in the air. The artwork could range from realism to surrealism to abstraction and all artists and photographers, regardless of location or experience, were encouraged to submit their best representational or non-representational art and photography.

The “Animal Kingdom” Best in Show winners are Nathalie Beck for her colored pencil on canson pastel paper, “In Memory of Skylar I” and dbJR for his photo on metal, “On the Prowl.”

Both Nathalie and dbJR are Fusion Art’s Featured Artists for the month of May 2017 and, as the Best in Show winners, both artists are also invited to participate in Fusion Art’s 2nd Annual Group Show in Palm Springs, CA, in November 2017.

Other award winners include Second Place winners, Quentin Bartholomew for her oil and alcohol on photography paper, “Spirit of the Marshes” and Celine Hartwig for her digital photograph, “Louis Portrait #2.” Third Place awards were given to Sam Dolman for his oil on wood, “Wiggles” and Richard Greene for his photograph, “Concerned.”

The remaining finalists in the exhibition, including six Honorable Mention winners – Kieran Stephens, Anuradha Kabra, Jennifer Wildermuth Reyes, Trudy L. Waterman, Nancy Pallowick and Chiara Santoro all exemplified uniquely creative talents and we’re honored to showcase their artwork on the Fusion Art website.

The international competition received a diverse collection of quality artwork from artists all around the world, including the US, Canada, United Kingdom, India, Italy, Australia, Austria, Qatar, Norway, Russia, Japan, France, Ireland and Singapore. The exhibition will be featured on the Fusion Art website until May 31, 2017.

Founded by Award winning artist, Chris Hoffman, Fusion Art was envisioned and formed out of a passion for art and the artists who create it. The website promotes and connects new, emerging and established artists with collectors and art enthusiasts, while offering the opportunity to participate in art competitions and experiences.

Each month and quarter Fusion Art hosts uniquely themed art competitions and exhibitions. Both winners and finalists are provided with worldwide exposure, by having their work promoted through Fusion Art’s website, in 200+ press release announcements, email marketing, online event calendars, art news websites and through the gallery’s social media outlets. The gallery’s objective is to promote the artists, worldwide, to art professionals, gallerists, collectors and buyers.
