Welcome to Fusion Art's 2nd Watercolor International Online Juried Art Exhibition.
For this competition, artists, worldwide, were encouraged to submit their best watercolor artwork. The competition was open to all artists working in water media regardless of location or experience. Paintings must be two-dimensional and must consist of water-based media on paper or synthetic paper surface.
Water media includes watercolor, acrylic, ink, gouache, casein, egg tempera, watercolor pencil and watercolor crayon. Pastel or collage may be used as long as water-media is the dominant element. 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 art in any subject matter.
We once again received a diverse collection of quality artwork from artists all around the world, including the US, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Germany, India, China, Austria, Japan and France. Overall, the gallery judged 204 entries and accepted 64 artworks into the exhibition, which will be featured on the website for 3 months starting on January 15, 2021.
In this quarterly themed exhibition, Fusion Art presents awards to the top ten winning artists. The Watercolor Best in Show winner is Judith Rackham for her watercolor painting "The Opponent" As the Best in Show winner, Judith is invited to participate in Fusion Art's 6th Annual Group Show in Palm Springs in 2022.
Below are the 2nd through 10th Place winning artists in the exhibition. Please visit the Winners Page to learn more about each of these award winning artists and/or to contact them directly about their work.
In addition, six honorable mention awards are given as special recognition due to the exceptional quality of the art received for this competition.
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 artwork that was submitted was 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.
Thank you for visiting our website and enjoy the exhibition!
