Fusion Art

Fusion Art

Fusion Art invites submissions for its upcoming juried online exhibition: Colors of Fall

“I step outside and the chilly air tightens the skin on my bare arms. Summer has ended all too quickly, and some of the leaves on the trees have already started to burn with the colors of fall. Fall colors…. so bright and intense and beautiful. It’s like nature is trying to fill you up with color, to saturate you so you can stockpile it before winter turns everything muted and dreary.”  ~Siobhan Vivian, Same Difference

The artwork for this competition should convey the feeling of Fall. It can be about the emotions that we have around events like Halloween and Thanksgiving; the commune with nature as it explodes with all of its brilliance. The art can range from ultra realism to complete abstraction as long as it captures the essence of this vivid, colorful season.
