Welcome to Fusion Art's Colors International Online Juried Art Exhibition for the month of March 2017. For this open theme competition artists and photographers were encouraged to share their artistic vision using a concentration of color. One color or a multitude of colors met the criteria for this competition. The artwork could range from realism to surrealism to abstraction and could be any subject matter and any of the accepted media. 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, India, United Arab Emirates, Japan, China, Czech Republic, Germany, Israel, Mexico, Taiwan, and Australia.

Each month Fusion Art presents awards in two categories: Traditional Art and Digital Art & Photography. The Best in Show winners are Christopher Lane for his acrylic on canvas, "Koi" and Nancy Pallowick for her photograph, “Coiled Baskets." Both Christopher and Nancy are Fusion Art's Featured Artists for the month of March 2017 and, as the Best in Show winners, both artists are also 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, John Jaster for his acrylic on canvas, "Lady in the Mask" and Terry Hastings for his photo on metal, "See World." Third Place awards were given to Jessica Tookey for her acrylic on canvas, "Nature Succumbs to the Machine" and Cesar Peralta for his digital collage, "Neon Tour.”

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 Pinky Tripathi for her acrylic on canvas, "HARMONY", Loretta Kauffman for her acrylic on canvas "There Is Safety In Numbers (Variation I): Environment Series", and Gray Jones for his ink on printed vellum, "Portrait of a Lady." Honorable Mention awards in the Digital & Photography category were given to Rita Noe for her digigraph, "Sun Gazer", Bodhisatwa Chakravarty for his digital photograph "Spring Tulips in Skagit Valley" and Sylvia Freeman for her digital photograph, "Morning Sun."

The remaining finalists in the exhibition all exemplify uniquely creative talents and we're once again 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 to offer your 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!
