“Every single line means something.” ~ Jean-Michel Basquiat
Fusion Art invites submissions for the 5th Annual Lines, Shapes & Objects art competition for an online exhibition during the month of June 2023.
For this competition, both 2D and 3D artists, worldwide, are invited to submit their best art and photography depicting lines, shapes & objects. Lines & shapes are two of the seven elements of art. And together they allow artists to create objects. How these elements are used affects the composition and overall outcome of an artwork.
The artwork for this competition can range from realism to surrealism to abstraction and all artists, regardless of location or experience, are encouraged to submit their best work in any media.
Here is a link to the 4th Annual Lines, Shapes & Objects Art Exhibition in order to help artists see what type of art was accepted in the past.
Best in Show and 2nd through 5th Place awards will be given. The Best in Show winners will receive a cash prize or the option of a one-year complimentary membership to Fusion Art’s Featured Artist Members Gallery, as long as they meet the eligibility listed HERE. In addition, Best in Show winners receive an invitation to Fusion Art’s Annual Group Show in Santa Fe, NM in 2024.
Depending on the number and quality of all submissions received, Artistic Excellence and/or Honorable Mention awards may also be given. Please see further information below under the Awards section.
