Fusion Art is very pleased to announce that the 8th Artist Spotlight solo art competition opened for submissions on September 8, 2019. The gallery created this monthly solo art exhibition series as an outlet for emerging, mid-level and, even, professional artists to gain more worldwide online exposure.
The art world has changed in the last decade. With the introduction of Facebook in 2004, Twitter in 2006, and Instagram in 2010, the way artists and their collectors/buyers find each other has changed. Through online and social media exposure, artists and collectors who may have never found each other previously, can find, buy and sell art to each other.
The Artist Spotlight Series is designed to to assist artists gain exposure through the promotion of solo art exhibitions on the Fusion Art website, through online press releases and articles, and social media promotion.
Artist Spotlight will highlight individual artists who have an overall body of work to showcase. Each month, Fusion Art selects one traditional artist, one digital & photography artist and one 3-dimensional artist (if the gallery has received 3-dimensional entries) to promote by providing the artists with individual solo art exhibitions.
To qualify for Artist Spotlight artists must have a cohesive body of work to showcase with a minimum of five and a maximum of twenty pieces of art.
The Artist Spotlight competition is an open competition. There is no theme and any subject matter and any media are acceptable. Artist Spotlight will be a more competitive environment than our monthly and quarterly themed competitions. While the overall quality, originality, creativity, composition and presentation of an artist’s work is always an important consideration in all Fusion Art’s competition, Artist Spotlight is designed to highlight those artists who have a cohesive, quality, body of work to showcase. The artwork included in the Artist Spotlight Solo Art Exhibition does not need to be for sale.
A nonrefundable entry fee of $35 for up to 5 images.
