Welcome to Fusion Art's 3rd Annual Into the Wild International Online Juried Art Exhibition.
For its 17th quarterly art exhibition both 2D and 3D artists were encouraged to share their best art and photography depicting wildlife. The wildlife theme included any undomesticated animal species including any wild mammal, wild fish, wild bird or wild reptile. The work could range from realism to surrealism to abstraction and all artists, regardless of location or experience, were encouraged to submit their best representational or abstract wildlife art and photography.
We once again received a diverse collection of quality artwork from artists all around the world, including the US, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Germany, China, Japan, Belgium, Greece, Mexico, the Republic of Moldova and Spain. Overall, the gallery judged 402 entries and accepted 143 artworks into the exhibition, which will be featured on the website for 3 months starting on April 15, 2021.
In this quarterly themed exhibition, Fusion Art presents awards in three categories: Traditional Art, Photography & Digital Art, and 3-Dimensional Art. The Into the Wild Best in Show winners are Nathan Miller for his acrylic on gesso board, “Legend of the Jaguar Shaman”, Shawna Hinkel for her photograph, "The Mad Drag Queen” and Peter Thomas for his bronze sculpture, "Wisdom Walker". As the Best in Show winners, Nathan, Shawna and Peter are invited to participate in Fusion Art's Annual Group Show in Palm Springs in 2022.
Below are the top winning artists in the Traditional Art, Photography & Digital Art and 3-Dimensional categories. Please visit the Winners Page to learn more about each of these award-winning artists and/or to contact them directly about their work.
In addition, twelve honorable mention awards are given as special recognition due to the exceptional quality of the art received for this competition.
The remaining finalists in the exhibition all exemplify uniquely creative talents and we're honored to showcase their artwork on the Fusion Art website.
Fusion Art strives to create interesting and enjoyable art exhibitions with a variety of artistic styles and media represented. The art that is selected is based on the theme of the exhibition and the gallery's objective is to include, in every Fusion Art exhibition, a broad representation of quality, style, media, creativity, originality and artistic composition. Art tells a story and we strive to select artwork, particularly for awards, that make the viewers think and wonder what story the artist is trying to tell.
As always, we'd like to take this opportunity to thank all the competition participants. While not all the artwork that was submitted was selected for inclusion in the exhibition this in not necessarily a reflection on any one artist's talent and/or skill. It takes courage for artists to offer up one's art up for critique by others and all the artists should be applauded for their efforts. We appreciate all of you sharing your extraordinary talent with us.
For anyone interested in purchasing any of the artwork in this exhibition, please contact the artists directly. You will find the artist's website and/or email information below their work.
Thank you for visiting our website and enjoy the exhibition!
