Light & Shadow International Juried Art Competition
For International artists

Fusion Art invites submissions for its upcoming online exhibition:  Light & Shadow

For this competition artists and photographers are encouraged to share their artistic vision and interpretation of light and shadow.  The artwork should focus on the dramatic placement and effects of light and shadow over the canvas or through the lens. Whether color or black and white, the light and shadow in the artwork should emphasize the subject matter by giving definition and dimension thus enhancing the vivid placement of lights and darks. 

This competition will accept any subject matter in any of the acceptable mediums and the artwork can range from realism to surrealism to abstraction.
