“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated” ~ Mahatma Gandhi

Welcome to Fusion Art’s 5th Annual Into the Wild International Online Juried Art Exhibition.

For its 23rd quarterly art exhibition Fusion Art invited 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, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Belgium and Denmark. Overall, the gallery judged 232 entries and accepted 93 artworks into the exhibition, which will be featured on the website for 3 months starting on March 15, 2023.

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 Lisa Perrin-Kosmo for her water-based oil on canvas, “IN THE LIGHT”, David G. Lee for his digital art, “BLACK WOLF NOT IN THE MOOD TO PLAY” and Chen Xiaowan for her sculpture, “HARE”. As the Best in Show winners, Lisa, Dave and Chen are will receive a cash prize and are invited to participate in Fusion Art’s 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 to see the slide show compilation videos for the exhibition.

Thank you for visiting our website and enjoy the exhibition!
