    Fusion Art is celebrating Women Artists and is pleased to announce the opening of its 5th quarterly online art competition. The gallery invites both 2D and 3D submissions from women artists, only, regardless of their location or their experience or education in the art field.

    Historically women artists have not received the respect and recognition that their talent deserves. Fusion Art wants to honor the greatness and talent of women artists. This is an international open competition and so any subject matter and any medium is acceptable. The work can range from realism to surrealism to abstraction and all women artists, over the age of 18, are encouraged to submit their best 2D and 3D representational and non-representational art and photography.

    A three-month group online exhibition will be featured on the Fusion Art website starting January 15 through April 14, 2018.  

    The winners will be marketed and promoted extensively through the gallery’s website, in hundreds of press release announcements, email marketing, online event calendars, art news websites, including but not limited to ARTFIXdaily and Artweek and through the gallery’s extensive social media outlets. Artweek.com, alone, has 30,000 newsletter subscribers and almost 300,000 website visitors per month and ARTFIXdaily is the industry leader in curated news from the Art World.

    RITUAL ART TODAY: CONTEMPORARY AND NON-TRADITIONAL RELIGIOUS OBJECTS    Deadline: Thu, February 1st, 2018
    Ritual is important to religious practice through beauty, personal connection, and the senses. Today artisans, craftspeople and artists want to add to that experience. They use non-traditional materials, explore new shapes, create contraptions, and look to avant-garde art. These artists enrich, explore and interpret religious practice through material choices and artistic techniques. 

    This exhibition is open to artists, craftspeople, and artisans of all faiths. Submissions must relate to the theme of contemporary and non-traditional ritual objects in clear ways. While this exhibition explores real objects, only photographs and 2D prints of these objects will be shown. 

    Application Due Date: Feb. 1, 2018

    Exhibition Dates: April 3 - 19, 2018

    In celebration of curator Ben Schachter’s new book, all complete entries will receive a copy of Image, Action, and Idea in Contemporary Jewish Art published by the Pennsylvania State University Press.
