Fusion Art Festival
Saturday, April 10, Fusion Art Festival 2010 brought creative works of 46 visual artists to art enthusiasts across Middle Tennessee. The lively, juried art show benefited the Minnie Pearl Cancer Foundation. This year, Fusion 10 exhibited artful creations of every kind with over 150 visual, film, and musical artists, fashion designers, photographers, and videographers, with live performances held at the Cannery Ballroom and adjoining Mercy Lounge venues. Hip, lively crowds of folks poured in all night long enjoying everything Fusion 10 had to offer.
Best of Show went to Hannah Maxwell for Watershed, a larger-than-life charcoalportrait of a woman. Natural beauty, femininity, and the origin of creativity recur as time-honored themes in Maxwell’s charcoal vignettes. A creative artist, wife, and mother of twin little girls, Hannah Maxwell lives in Bon Aqua, Tennessee.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from Fusion 2010 goes to The Minnie Pearl Cancer Foundation and their annual Young Adult Cancer Survivor Retreat for cancer survivors ages 20–35.
