Fusion Art is pleased to announce the opening of the 3rd Annual Cityscapes International Art Exhibition. The exhibition is now available for viewing on the Fusion Art website and features awards in two categories: Traditional Art and Digital Art & Photography.
For this exhibition, artists were encouraged to share their best art and photography using black & white & the nuanced shades in between. All artists, regardless of location or experience, were encouraged to submit their best representational or abstract art and photography.
The Cityscapes Best in Show winners are Allan Gorman for his oil on panel, "Manhattan Valley Overpass" and Philip Hopper for his photograph, "Columbus Circle Fog." Both Allan and Philip are Fusion Art's Featured Artists for the month of June 2018 and, as the Best in Show winners, both artists are invited to participate in Fusion Art's 3rd Annual Group Show in Palm Springs in February 2019.
Other award winners include Second Place winners, John Jaster for his acrylic on wrapped canvas, "LA Commute" and Jim Tarpo for his multi-panel metal print, "Las Vegas Strip at Night." Third Place awards were given to Hilary Burnett Cooper for her acrylic painting, "Sharing an Umbrella" and Don Agnello for his digital print, "ABSTRACTION #14.” Fourth Place awards were given to Cathy Boyer for her oil on canvas, "Grand Sentinel" and Trish Hoskin for her digital art, "Home and Fountain." Fifth Place awards were given to Raymond Sammak for his oil on canvas, "We Deliver" and Barbara Mierau-Klein for her digitally enhanced photograph, "Central Park."
Rounding out the awards for the exhibition are eight Honorable Mention winners. Honorable Mention awards in the Traditional Art category are given to David Manuel for his oil on canvas, "Church and Dundas", John Ressler for his watercolor, "London Work Party", Pam Folsom for her oil on canvas, "Over the Rhine" and Guglielmo Botter for his pen and ink, "Pittsburgh, PA: View from atop Benedum Trees Building."
Honorable Mention awards in the Digital & Photography category are given to Constance Vepstas for her digital print, "View From The Window", John Waiblinger for his archival inkjet print on metallic photopaper, "City of Angels", Francis O’Donnell for his digital photograph, "Reflections on a Dream" and Margaret Makowski for her digital photograph, "SanFran." The remaining finalists in the exhibition all exemplified uniquely creative talents and we are honored to showcase their artwork on the Fusion Art website.
The international competition received a diverse collection of quality artwork from artists all around the world, including the US, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Italy, Israel, the Republic of Korea, and India. The exhibition will be featured on the Fusion Art website for the month of June 2018.
Founded by Award winning artist, Chris and Valerie Hoffman, Fusion Art was envisioned and formed out of a passion for art and the artists who create it. The website promotes and connects new, emerging and established artists with collectors and art enthusiasts, while offering the opportunity to participate in art competitions, exhibitions and experiences.
Each month and quarter Fusion Art hosts uniquely themed solo and group art competitions and exhibitions. Both winners and finalists are provided with worldwide exposure, by having their work promoted through Fusion Art’s website, in hundreds of press release announcements, email marketing, online event calendars, art news websites and through the gallery’s social media outlets. The gallery’s objective is to promote the artists, worldwide, to art professionals, gallerists, collectors and buyers.
