Global Fusion Art is happy to present a special event dedicated to intra-terrestrial
life and existence. Intra-terrestrial life refers to all things originating on our planet earth and it’s atmosphere.
At times what is in essence intra-terrestrial, can appear extraterrestrial. Regardless of whether or not we believe in extraterrestrial
life, we (earthlings) can appreciate, protect and preserve the planet that we inhabit in our current space and time. In the
work of our participating Global Fusion artists, we find various aspects of our contrasting intra-terrestrial life and nature.
Global Fusion Art is a collective group of multicultural
artists and communities committed to support cross-cultural understanding through visual arts, music, performance and multi-media.
We seek to raise awareness of the global community and promote individuals and organizations that provide humanitarian services
across the world. For this event, artists have pledged 10% of sale price of artwork and event proceeds will be donated
to the Nature Conservancy, protecting nature and preserving life worldwide.
Participating Visual Artists:Farhana Akhter, Baishian Bai, Emma Ehrenthal, Christina Lum,
Tehniyet Masood, Chandini Pinilla, Damaso Reyes, Juan Carlo Suazo, Ellen Woods
