There are no rules. That is how art is born, how breakthroughs happen. Go against the rules or ignore the rules. That is what invention is about." ~Helen Frankenthaler
Welcome to Fusion Art's 4th Annual Women Artists International Online Juried Art Exhibition.
For its 19th quarterly art exhibition Fusion Art is once again celebrating Women Artists. For this open (no theme) competition, the gallery invited both 2D and 3D submissions from women artists, only, regardless of their location or their experience or education in the art field. All women artists, over the age of 18 were encouraged to submit their best representational or abstract art and photography.
We once again received a diverse collection of quality artwork from women artists all around the world, including the US, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Germany, China, Croatia, Malaysia, Romania, Ireland, Latvia, Italy, Sweden, South Africa, Hungary, Poland, Switzerland, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Taiwan, Russia, Japan, Ghana, Argentina and the United Arab Emirates. Overall the gallery judged 663 entries and accepted 257 artworks into the exhibition, which will be featured on the website for 3 months starting on November 15, 2021.
In this quarterly themed exhibition, Fusion Art presents awards in three categories: Traditional Art, Photography & Digital Art, and 3-Dimensional Art. The Women Artists Best in Show winners are Monique McFarland for her watercolor, “The Cowboy”, Barbara Mierau-Klein for her digital photo collage, "The Raven” and Karen Russo for her stoneware, casein, and acrylic, "Spirit's Cradle”. As the Best in Show winners, Monique, Barbara and Karen are invited to participate in Fusion Art's Annual Group Show in Palm Springs in March 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, eighteen 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!
