A Day of Art

Ralph Waldo Emerson once noted, “Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art,” and so true when it comes to the design of your home. Art has the power to instantly transform a space, generate an emotion and one of the most vital elements in decorating a room. It is a highly personal choice and most importantly, it does not have to match your sofa. While selecting art is often a daunting task, the best advice is to follow your heart, if you love it, buy it!

Summer Classics Home is making selecting art and easier by offering an Artist Pop-Up Shop Event showcasing local artist in our Nation-wide stores. Held on July 29th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., browse a variety of styles and enjoy an appetizer and mimosa as the perfect painting, photograph, or jewelry design may be waiting for you. Meeting and talking with the artist makes it more enjoyable and remember, today’s up-and-coming artist could be tomorrow’s superstar.

The Artist Events are held in the following cities:
