Welcome to Fusion Art's Black & White International Online Juried Art Exhibition for the month of August 2017.

For this competition artists and photographers, were encouraged to share their artistic art and photography using black & white & the nuanced shades in between. The artwork could range from realism to surrealism to abstraction and all artists and photographers, regardless of location or experience, were encouraged to submit their best representational or non-representational art and photography.

We once again received a diverse collection of quality artwork from artists all around the world including the US, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, France, Spain, Taiwan, Germany, Bosnia and Herzegovina, China, Barbados, India and Greece.

Each month Fusion Art presents awards in two categories: Traditional Art and Digital Art & Photography. The Best in Show winners are Diane Farquhar for her acrylic on canvas, "Opposition" and Kathleen Greenwood for her photo print mounted on acrylic, “Gentle Warrior." Both Diane and Kathleen are Fusion Art's Featured Artists for the month of August 2017 and, as the Best in Show winners, both artists are invited to participate in Fusion Art's 2nd Annual Group Show in Palm Springs, CA, in November 2017.

Other award winners include Second Place winners, Tara Merkt for her scratchboard, "Cthulhu" and Craig Waters for his digital photograph, "Hand and Feet." Third Place awards were given to Barbara Pickering for her oil painting, "Jesse" and Trudy L. Waterman for her digital photograph, "GOK SERIES LONGHORN II.”

In addition, this month, several honorable mention awards were given as special recognition due to the exceptional quality of the art received for this competition. Honorable Mention awards in the Traditional Art category were given to Lisa Daniels for her acrylic painting, "One Wave," Juvy Panganiban for her acrylic on canvas, “Corporate World" and Sarah Lund for her acrylic on canvas, "Massif." Honorable Mention awards in the Digital & Photography category were given to Tony Lopes for his digital photograph, “Solitude," Aniruddha Das  for his photograph, "Alone" and Mac Titmus for his digital photograph, "Opposing Motion." Please visit the Monthly Winners Page to learn more about each of these award winning artists and/or to contact them directly about their work.

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 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 their 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. 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!
