Light & Shadow 2022 Art Exhibition – December 2022

“Shadow is a color as light is, but less brilliant; light and shadow are only the relation of two tones.” ~Paul Cezanne

Welcome to Fusion Art's Light & Shadow 2022 International Online Juried Art Exhibition for the month of December 2022.

For this exhibition, both 2D and 3D artists were encouraged to submit their best art depicting light and shadow.  Whether color or black and white, the artwork should focus on the dramatic placement and effects of light and shadow over the canvas or through the lens. All artists, over the age of 18, regardless of location or experience, were encouraged to submit their best work in any media.

We once again received a diverse collection of quality artwork from artists all around the world, including the US, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, China, Poland, the Philippines, Brazil, Finland, France, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Montenegro and South Africa. Overall, the gallery judged 256 entries and accepted 97 artworks into the exhibition, which will be featured on the website homepage for 3 months. After that it will remain in the Exhibition Archives.

In this monthly themed exhibition, Fusion Art presents awards in two categories: Traditional Art and Photography & Digital Art. The Light & Shadow Best in Show winners are Yuqian Sun for her watercolor and ink on paper, “Artificial Fairies No. 9 - Listener” and Brian Francesco Puliga for his digital mixed media (ink on paper, acrylic paint, digital painting), “STOP”.

Yuqian and Francesco are Fusion Art's Featured Artists for the month of December 2022 and, as the Best in Show winners, both artists will receive a cash prize and are invited to participate in Fusion Art's Annual Group Show in Santa Fe in 2024. Alternatively, in lieu of the cash prize, the Best in Show winners may choose a complimentary one-year membership to our Fusion Artist’s Members Gallery.

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 artists and artwork that were submitted were 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.

Please visit our YouTube Archives or our YouTube Channel on December 12th to see the slide show compilation videos for the exhibition.

Thank you for visiting our website and enjoy the exhibition!
