Western Art Exhibition – June 21 – September 23, 2022

"Truly all is remarkable and a wellspring of amazement and wonder. Man is so fortunate to dwell in this American Garden of Eden." ~ Albert Bierstadt

Welcome to Fusion Art's Western Art International Online Juried Art Exhibition.

For this special Summer art exhibition, 2D and 3D artists, worldwide, were encouraged to submit their best work depicting the history, people, culture, landscape and wildlife of the American West, both historical and present day.

The work could range from realism to surrealism to abstraction and all artists, over the age of 18, regardless of location or experience, were encouraged to submit their best representational and/or abstract western artwork in any media.

The gallery received entries from the US, Canada and Hong Kong. Overall, the gallery judged 136 entries and accepted 65 artworks into the exhibition, which will be featured on the website for 3 months starting on June 21, 2022.

In this Western themed exhibition, Fusion Art presents awards in three categories: Traditional Art, Photography & Digital Art, and 3-Dimensional Art. The Western Art Best in Show winners are Kath Paulus for her pastel, “The Patriot”, Judy Belleci for her photograph, "A Time to gather ...” and Robert Seliger for his mixed media hand carved table, "Teton Starry Night". As the Best in Show winners, Kathy, Judy and Robert are invited to participate in Fusion Art's Annual Group Show in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 2023. Also as Best in Show winners, they will receive invitations for complimentary one-year memberships to our new 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 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.

Please visit our YouTube Archives and/or our YouTube Channel to see the videos for the exhibition.

Thank you for visiting our website and enjoy the exhibition!
