Happy New Year to you all! We would like to once again thank all of our artists for participating in Fusion Art’s online art competitions and exhibitions this past year.
One of the awards the gallery offers its Best in Show and Artist Spotlight winners is the opportunity to participate in an annual group show in Palm Springs. Since our inception, anywhere between forty-five and sixty of our winning artists, each year take part in this in-person show.
However, after much discussion and deliberation, Chris and I have made the very difficult decision to postpone the 5th Annual Group Show in light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Although tentatively scheduled for March, the ongoing surge of Covid-19 cases locally, nationally and internationally, as well as the timetable for vaccination of the public, we feel the responsible and safe decision is to postpone the show until later in 2021.
This has been a very difficult year for everyone, artists and the art community especially. Like all of you, we hope the release of the vaccines will help return our way of life to some semblance of normalcy and let us all finally gather together safely again.
Hopefully participating in our Fusion Art competitions and exhibitions, and our ongoing marketing and promotion efforts for you throughout the year, has allowed collectors, buyers, art professionals and enthusiasts to find you and your work during this unprecedented time.
While we know that many art galleries are once again hosting in-person shows with proper precautions and social distancing measures in place, due to the nature of our group shows, with artists participating and attending from both near and far, we feel the risk to our artists traveling, potentially contracting and/or spreading the virus is still too great.
We thank you for your understanding. When we feel it is safe we will hold the in person annual group show again. We are tentatively planning for Fall 2021 and will keep you all posted of the plans as the new year progresses.
Once again, thank you to all our artists for being a part of the Fusion Art family. We look forward to seeing more of your beautiful work in the coming year
We hope all of you have a very happy, prosperous and healthy 2021!
