Palm Springs, CA, USA -- Fusion Art is pleased to announce the opening of its August 2016 International Online Juried Art Exhibition, "Cityscapes." The exhibition is now available for viewing on the Fusion Art website.

Opening on August 1st, the "Cityscapes" exhibition 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 of the theme "Cityscapes," which included any art or photography that depicted cities, towns, urban scenes and any related metropolitan subjects. The artwork could range from realism to surrealism to abstraction and all artists and photographers, regardless of location or experience, were encouraged to submit.

The "Cityscapes" Best in Show winners are Cecily Willis for her watercolor on arches paper, "Frolic Room - Hollywood Blvd." and Stephen Baumbach for his photograph, "Glass and Class."

Both Cecily and Stephen are Fusion Art's Featured Artists for the month of August 2016 and, as the Best in Show winners, both artists are also invited to participate in Fusion Art's Annual Group Show in Palm Springs, CA, in November 2016.

Other Cityscapes award winners include Second Place winners, Tighe Hanson for his acrylic on canvas, "Speed Limit 45" and Harry Longstreet for his photograph, "Naked Cowboy." Third Place awards were given to Jack Nixon for his graphite on paper, "Study in Light and Form: The Wrigley, Tribune, and Medinah Spires" and Brian Ashworth for his digital photograph, "Sunset over Manama Bahrain." The remaining finalists in the exhibition all exemplify uniquely creative talents and we're once again honored to showcase their artwork on the Fusion Art website.

The international competition was held from June 14th through July 26th and received a diverse collection of quality artwork from artists all around the world, including the US, Canada, England, India, Ireland, Russia, the Netherlands, the United Arab Emirates and Spain. The exhibition will be featured on the Fusion Art website until August 31, 2016.

Founded by Award winning artist, Chris Hoffman, Fusion Art was envisioned and formed out of a passion for art and the artists who create it. The website promotes and connects new, emerging and established artists with collectors and art enthusiasts, while offering the opportunity to participate in art competitions and experiences.

Each month Fusion Art hosts uniquely themed art competitions and exhibitions. Both winners and finalists are provided with worldwide exposure, by having their work promoted through Fusion Art's website, in 70+ press release announcements, email marketing, online event calendars, art news websites and through the gallery's social media outlets. The gallery's objective is to promote the artists, worldwide, to art professionals, gallerists, collectors and buyers.
