Winners of the 10th Artist Spotlight Solo Art Competition Announced

The gallery is pleased to announce the winning artists of the gallery’s recent 10th Artist Spotlight Solo Art Competition.

The 10th Artist Spotlight competition ran between May 14, 2020 and July 10, 2020. The tremendous talent of the many artists who participated in the Artist Spotlight competition made for an extremely challenging jury selection. We are incredibly humbled that so many incredibly talented artists entered the competition.

The winners of the this round of Artist Spotlight exhibitions will run from August 1, 2020 and continue for four months, through November 30, 2020.  Both 2-D and 3-D artists were invited to enter up to eight pieces of work as a sample of their overall body of work.  Winning artists were then invited to submit up to an additional twelve pieces of work for their solo exhibition.

Twelve artists were chosen and the winners are as follows:

Each Artist Spotlight winning artist receives a one-month solo art exhibition on the Fusion Art website.  The artists and their solo art exhibition will be promoted extensively by the gallery on the Fusion Art website, individual online press releases to hundreds of outlets, in online event calendars, email-marketing campaigns, art news websites, publishing sites, and through the gallery’s extensive social media outlets.  Artist Spotlight winners also receive in invitation to Fusion Art’s Annual Group Show that is held in Palm Springs every year. The 2021 show is tentatively scheduled for March 2021.

In addition, the artists receive a digital award certificate, event announcement postcard and a copy of the press release for their art portfolio. A video of the Artist’s exhibition will be created and available on the website and Fusion Art’s YouTube channel. Links to the artist’s website are listed on the exhibition page and should result in increased traffic to the artist’s website.

Fusion Art’s objective is to promote the artists, worldwide, to art professionals, gallerists, collectors and buyers, and other influential individuals in the art world. All inquiries from interested individuals and potential buyers are directed to the artists for negotiation. Fusion Art does not take a commission on any sale that results from the online solo exhibition.

Thank you to all the artists for participating in the competition. Fusion Art recognizes that it is not easy for artists to put their work out there and offer it up for critique by others. All the artists should be applauded for their efforts. We take this responsibility very seriously and, as always, we are humbled and honored that you chose Fusion Art.

Congratulations to the Artist Spotlight winning artists! Thank you for sharing your incredible talent with us. We look forward to assisting you to share it with the world.
