Welcome to Artist's Choice, Fusion Art's International Online Juried Art Exhibition for January 2016. We once again received a diverse collection of quality artwork from artists in over eight countries including the US, Canada, Hungary, Japan, Thailand, Israel, India, and France.

Fusion Art's presents awards in two categories: Traditional Art and Digital Art & Photography.  The Best in Show winners include Graham Coulthard for his oil on canvas, “Pedro the Jockey”, and Jessica Manelis for her Digital Painting, “Downtown.” Both Graham and Jessica are Fusion Art's Featured Artists for the month of January 2106. For more information about Graham and Jessica please visit our Featured Artist page.

Other Artist's Choice award winners include Second Place winners, Natalie Reilly, for her acrylic on canvas, "Tale of the Juniper Tree" and Don Bergland, for his digital pigment print, “Oblivion.” Third Place awards were given to Manish Pandey for his, acrylic on canvas, “The Pledge” and Lee Balan for his, digital painting, “The Park.” 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!
