February 2016 Online Exhibition

Animal Kingdom

"Is there any more mysterious idea for an artist than the conception of how nature is mirrored in the eyes of an animal? How does a horse see the world, or an eagle, or a doe, or a dog?"  ~Franz Marc

Welcome to Animal Kingdom, Fusion Art's International Online Juried Art Exhibition for February 2016. We once again received a diverse collection of quality artwork from artists in over ten countries including the US, Canada, Singapore, England, China, Belgium, Bulgaria, Israel, Estonia and France.

Fusion Art's presents awards in two categories: Traditional Art and Digital Art & Photography. The Best in Show winners include Dionne Ho for her watercolor on cold pressed paper, “A Hunter’s Glare”, and Jean Burnett for her digital art from photography on canvas, “Two x Two.” Both Dionne and Jean are Fusion Art's Featured Artists for the month of February 2016. For more information about Dionne and Jean please visit our Featured Artist page.

Other Animal Kingdom award winners include Second Place winners, David Hoque, for his colored pencil on suede, "Seamus" and Youri Chasov, for his digital painting, “Puma.” Third Place awards were given to Benjamin Williams for his, acrylic on canvas, “Home at Last” and Margarita Bourkova for her, digital painting, “TicTac.” The remaining finalists in the exhibition all exemplify uniquely creative talents and we're honored to showcase their artwork on the Fusion Art website.

As always, we'd like to take this opportunity to, once again, 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 to put your art out there 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 the exhibition, please contact the artists directly. Fusion Art does not engage in selling the artwork featured in any of its monthly online exhibitions. All purchase inquiries should be directed to the artist. You will find the artist's website and/or email information below their work.

Thank you for visiting our website and enjoy the exhibition!
