DECO-R: Decorative Art Exhibition

DECO-R stands for DECOR or Decorative Art. This incredible exhibit designed by interior designers showcases art that's made to enhance and decorate residential and commercial living spaces.

Decorative art is about beautifying our surroundings and creating a focal point for each living space. Imagine an ultra-contemporary home with just the right art piece. Or a new commercial building that highlights color, texture, and design through artwork. DECO-R is an exhibit that connects interior designers, architects, and owners with artists who can help complete their design.

Imagine what a new DECOR can do for your new space. Get creative and connect with contemporary design. DECO-R!

We are looking for all types of works--painting, sculpture, photography and more--works that show off your ability and creativity with art that can be used to decorative spaces. Small and large formats. Give viewers and collectors a chance to see what your art can do for them... The main criteria for selection is creativity and fresh approaches in the artwork.
