CHICAGO HEIGHTS, Ill. (April 5, 2024) – The Union Street Gallery’s exhibition Designed to Dwell is dedicated to exploring the art of living through creative and innovative design. This exhibition seeks to highlight how artistry and functionality merge to transform everyday living spaces into realms of aesthetic delight and introduce themes of both practical and impractical comfort or discomfort.

Union Street Gallery is inviting artists, designers, and makers to submit original handmade works that challenge and expand the boundaries of traditional home furnishings and decor.

The exhibition is looking for pieces that include, but are not limited to, sofas, chairs, lamps, tables, rugs, pillows, coat racks, curtains, ceramics, shelving, and more. The key is innovation and creativity in reimagining the objects that inhabit our typical living spaces.

Submissions can be either functional, ornamental, or both. However, they do not need to fulfill both criteria to be considered. Whether your piece serves a practical purpose or exists purely for artistic expression, we want to see how your work contributes to the concept of dwelling.

The deadline to submit is July 11, 2024.

Union Street Gallery is located at 1527 Otto Boulevard in Chicago Heights.
