Seasons Art ExhibitionDecember 2017
Welcome to Fusion Art's Seasons International Online Juried Art Exhibition for the month of December 2017.
For this competition artists were encouraged to share their best artistic interpretation of the four Seasons. The Seasons theme encompassed the four distinct times of the year – Spring, Summer, Fall & Winter - along with any scenes, weather, events, or activities associated with those four seasons. All artists, over the age of 18, regardless of location or experience, were encouraged to submit their best representational or abstract 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, Phillippines, South Korea, Italy, Austria and Spain.
Each month Fusion Art presents awards in two categories: Traditional Art and Digital Art & Photography. The Best in Show winners are Hunter Jay for his acrylic on canvas, "Enchantment" and Nicolas Raymond for his photograph, "Winter Arch Waterfall." Both Hunter and Nicolas are Fusion Art's Featured Artists for the month of December 2017 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 November 2018.
Other award winners include Second Place winners, Brian LaSaga for his acrylic on wood panel, "Winter Fir" and Cindy Vondran fo her digital photograph, "Christmas Magic." Third Place awards were given to Andrew Engel for his oil painting, "The Seasons From My Building" and Sheri Emerson for her photographic print, "Solitary.”
This month, eight 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 Leah Dockrill for her acrylic on canvas, "Summer Song," Park Soo-yeon for her ink (mixed acrylic) on traditional Korean paper, "Summer of Dreamer", Kristie Moore for her pastels on watercolor paper, "Aura" and Carmen Rey for her oil on canvas, "Her Journey." Honorable Mention awards in the Digital & Photography category were given to Gene Williams for his digital photograph, "Anza Borego", Marcia Berg Haskell for her digital photograph, "Suburban Spring", Julie Berglund for her float-mounted metal print, "Solace" and Trish Hoskin for her photograph on canvas, "Autumn at the River."

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.
