At School 33, a wallpaper-and-decor-lover’s dream! This show was juried by DC’s Philippa Hughes and is a terrifically crafted, fun and sassy show. It features the work of Chiara Keeling, Angelo Arnold, Allison Reimus, and Shannon Donovan. This show is definitely worth seeing!

“The works in this exhibit reconsider the questions of art as décor, and décor as art. These four artists consider their creative output and its relevance to space, aesthetic, and taste. They perceive and appreciate the prospective place in which their artwork will reside. Like the pop artists, they remove familiar from its context and isloate the objects to provide contemporary interpretations and definitions of fine art.”
