For this competition, both 2D and 3D artists were invited to share their best art and photography depicting waterscapes. The theme included any art, which depicted any type of body of water including the ocean, lakes, rivers, ponds, streams, coastal living, any ocean activities, seaside vistas, beaches, and any related seashore or lakeside subjects. It also included rain, puddles and frozen waterscapes. All artists, over the age of 18, regardless of location or experience, were encouraged to submit their best work for consideration.

The 4th Annual Waterscapes Best in Show winners are Lori Mills for her oil painting, “Malibu Coastline”, William Nourse for his photograph, “The Gloaming” and Amelia Johannsen for her sculpture, “The Wave”. Lori, William and Amelia are Fusion Art’s Featured Artists for the month of August 2019 and, as the Best in Show winners, all three artists are invited to participate in Fusion Art’s 4th Annual Group Show in Palm Springs in 2020.

Other award winners include Second Place winners, Jackson Lee for his acrylic on artboard, “Solid Foundation”, Rochelle Berman for her digital photograph, “Fisherboy” and Jacki Cohen for her sculpture, “Spirit”.

Honorable Mention awards in the Photography & Digital category were given to Shelley Benjamin, Glenn R. Strachan, Paul M Murray, Paul Collins and Marcia Berg Haskell.

The remaining finalists in the exhibition all exemplified uniquely creative talents and we are honored to showcase their artwork on the Fusion Art website.

The international competition received a diverse collection of quality artwork from artists all around the world, including the US, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, Germany, Spain, Hong Kong, Poland and the Netherlands. Overall, the gallery judged 422 entries for the exhibition, which will be featured on the website for the month of August 2019.

Founded by Award winning artist, Chris and Valerie Hoffman, Fusion Art was envisioned and formed out of a passion for art and the artists who create it. The website promotes and connects new, emerging and established artists with collectors and art enthusiasts, while offering the opportunity to participate in art competitions, exhibitions and experiences.

Each month and quarter Fusion Art hosts uniquely themed solo and group art competitions and exhibitions. Both winners and finalists are provided with worldwide exposure, by having their work promoted through Fusion Art’s website, in hundreds of press release announcements, email marketing, online event calendars, art news websites and through the gallery’s social media outlets. The gallery’s objective is to promote the artists, worldwide, to art professionals, gallerists, collectors and buyers.
