Palm Springs, CA, USA -- Fusion Art is pleased to announce the opening of the 2nd Annual "Figures & Faces" International Online Juried Art Exhibition for the month of December 2016. The exhibition is now available for viewing on the Fusion Art website (http://www.fusionartps.com).
The "Figures & Faces" exhibition opened on December 1st and featured awards in two categories: Traditional Art and Digital Art & Photography.
For this competition artists and photographers worldwide were encouraged to share their artistic vision and interpretation of the human form - both figures and faces. Artists and photographers, regardless of location or experience, were encouraged to submit.
The Best in Show winners are Joe Horton for his oil on canvas, "Midnight" and Peter Shepherd for his digital photograph, "Sculpture and Artist."
Both Joe and Peter are Fusion Art's Featured Artists for the month of December 2016 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, Travis Verlaeckt for his graphite pencil on paper, "Cleo" and Artur Golacki for his digital manipulation, "Buona, after Piero del Pollaiolo." Third Place awards were given to Faramus for his oil painting, "Dreaming with Peter D." and Kerry Rawlinson for her digital photo artwork, "Am'ker#16."
The remaining finalists in the exhibition, including four Honorable Mention winners - Cliff Kearns, Peter Broitman, Nicholas Teetelli and Chriss Knight, all exemplify uniquely creative talents and we're once again 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, England, Mexico, Russia, Australia, Spain, Hungary, India, Barbados, Taiwan, The Republic of Korea, the Czech Republic and the United Arab Emirates. The exhibition will be featured on the Fusion Art website until December 31, 2016.
