The Paradise City Arts Festival in Marlborough, Mass., was held Nov. 17-19 at the Royal Plaza Trade Center and featured one-of-a-kind home furnishings, paintings, textiles and art pieces.

Exhibitors included 175-juried artists from 27 states.

The show attracted hundreds of decorators, architects and homeowners, according to show directors Linda and Geoffrey Post.

“Each year we combine new artists with the old, always with an eye toward curating an event that includes different price points and aesthetics, and tapping into the latest trends,” says Geoffrey Post.

This year’s event featured a “Life of the Party” theme, encouraging artists to create works in a “celebratory spirit.”
