Go BIG Or Go Home! – Large Works Show at JCO’s Art Haus

A BIG opportunity is knocking. Will you answer?

What if we bought couches to match our artwork, instead of the other way around?

What if a painting could redefine the way we think about our homes?


What if bigger really is better…?

At JCO’s Art Haus, we think we should; we think it can; and we think it is.  

Our clients are calling for BIG change, and they’re looking for bigger work than ever before. This Fall, JCO’S Art Haus is calling for room-defining art: works must be four feet long or wide, minimum. Let’s make a statement, shall we?

Our gallery has been established on the West Coast for over 9 years, and our following is dedicated. Our marketing is innovative. Our professional team of preparators, marketers, and salesfolks is tight-knit, charismatic, and just-the-right-kind-of-pushy. 

Let's collaborate and sell some art!

Emerging and established artists,  Bay Area-based and beyond, are invited to apply to our Fall/Winter showcase, “Go BIG or Go Home.” This show is curated and installed gallery-style, with the unique and ambitious goal of presenting “something for everyone.”

Top-selling artists will be invited to be represented full-time by our gallery.

We are interested in artists working in ALL mediums and themes, including (and not limited to): Landscapes, city scenes, pop art, indoor- and outdoor-sculpture, mixed media, florals, abstracts, and still life.

REQUIREMENTS:

Paintings should be 48” long on one side, minimum (eg: 48” x 8”, 48” x 20”, 36” x 48”, et al.)

Ideally, we’re looking for 60” or longer on one side (eg: 60” x 9”, 72” x 72”, 90” x 120”, et al.)

Paintings may be stretched or unstretched.

Gallery pricing and studio pricing must be consistent.
