About the event

Fusion Art invites submissions for its 27th Quarterly Art Competition – the 5th Annual Still Life Art Competition.

For this art competition, 2D and 3D artists, worldwide, are encouraged to submit their best work depicting an arrangement of everyday inanimate objects.  The still life works can be traditional or contemporary in nature, with the content exhibiting everyday objects which are natural (e.g., food, flowers, plants, rocks, shells, etc.) or which are manufactured (e.g., bottles, glasses, pottery, books, jewelry, coins, pipes, etc.).

The subjects of the art can range from a single object to a complex arrangement of objects. The work can range from realism to surrealism to abstraction and all artists, regardless of location or experience, are encouraged to submit their best representational or abstract art and photography.

Here is a link to the 4th Annual Still Life Art Exhibition in order to help artists see what type of art was accepted in the past.
