For over 10 years, Fusion Art and its subsidiary gallery, the Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery, have been an advocates for artists by helping them to promote, market and sell their art online and around the world.
Since its inception, the gallery’s mission has been market and promote artists though online art exhibitions, our extensive social media and marketing networks and through our combined newsletter subscribers lists of over 35,000+ subscribers. Our extensive mailing lists include gallery owners, corporate art representatives, art collectors, art consultants and decision makers in the fine arts field.
Through both our online art galleries, Fusion Art provides one of the most advanced and widespread art marketing packages offered by any other online art gallery.
As we are constantly searching for new ways to promote and provide marketing and sales opportunities for our artists, Fusion Art is thrilled to announce we have new awards and marketing benefits that will launch this summer.
The gallery is pleased to announce that is will start awarding a monetary cash prize to the Best in Show winners in our quarterly competitions, as well as our monthly competitions. The amount of the monetary prize will be determined by the number of entries that are received in each competition.
In addition, like our monthly competitions, Best in Show winners in our quarterly competitions will have the choice of receiving a complimentary one-year membership to our Fusion Artist Members Gallery, as long as they meet the eligibility, in lieu of the cash prize.
In March 2022, Fusion Art launched a new Featured Artist Members Gallery. In this new curated Featured Artist Members Gallery, Artists receive a one-year membership, renewable annually, in which they receive a dedicated webpage on the website and are featured and promoted by the gallery for one full year through both the main Fusion Art website and this new Artist Gallery Members website.
The goal of this new Fusion Artist Membership is to provide our Fusion Artists even more promotion opportunities. The more artists are promoted and marketed, the more likely they are to find buyers and collectors for their art.

Fusion Art is thrilled to announce that starting in July 2022, it will be offering a grant opportunity for artists. These grants will be awarded to artists who show exceptional creative ability in their chosen craft.
These unrestricted monetary grants of $500 will be given to up to 3 artists each quarter to help with expenses involved with the creation and/or marketing of their art and to help advance their art careers.
This grant opportunity is open to new, emerging and professional artists, worldwide, and will be based on artistic excellence, not monetary need.
Applications will start being accepted in July, for a period of 3 months and the first set of quarterly grants will be awarded starting in October 2022.
For more information regarding this exciting new grant program, check the website starting in July.
We have always encouraged artists who are serious about their art, want to advance their art careers and increase sales, on how important it is to have a have a modern, professional, up-to-date website to display their art. The introduction of the .ART domains in 2016 was an ingenious way for artists to differentiate their websites, from the average website domain, and to emphasize their artistry.
Through a new partnership with the ART.ART domain registration service, we are going to be able to offer a discount to our top award winning artists who want to take the next step in their art careers or even upgrade their current website and brand to include the .ART affiliation.
We have now partnered with Art Storefronts to offer our top winning artists discounted plans for their platform.
Art Storefronts is a back-end software platform that makes running your art business easier. It has more art-selling features and functionality than any other art storefront website out there.
In addition to providing a state of the art platform for artists and photographers to create best-in-class art websites, with all the specific features and the experience required to sell art online at scale, Art Storefronts equips artists with art marketing tools to build an audience, stay connected with that audience, and maximize their sales from that audience over time.
Join 4,500+ artists and photographers that have discovered the new way to sell art and photography and grow a real business in 2022 and beyond.
Through this partnership, Fusion Art’s top winning artists will receive special discounts that are higher than is offered to the general public.
All of the above new awards will be offered starting with the August competition, the 7th Annual Animal Kingdom art competition, which launches on July 12th. The Featured Artist Membership is currently available and the Artist Grant for Artistic Excellence will launch in early July. As a means to defray at least some of the costs for these new awards, the gallery has increased entry fees slightly, starting with the June competition. To see the current competitions that are accepting entries, visit the Calls for Artists page.
Many of the partnerships we are forming with companies offer affiliate referral programs. We have waived and/or drastically reduced affiliate commissions in exchange for offering higher discounts and more benefits to artists who are referred by Fusion Art.
These new awards are our way of saying Thank You to all our artists for being part of the Fusion Art family. Thank you for sharing your truly incredible talent with us and allowing us to be a part of helping you to promote, market and sell your art.
