Grand Opening of the Honfleur Gallery

frm the DCist...

Celebrate the grand opening of the Honfleur Gallery this Saturday at 7 p.m. This very welcome addition to the city's art scene is located near the Anacostia metro and appropriately begins its life with East of the River, a mixed media exhibition that includes both professionals and first-timers who celebrate their history with the area. Especially notable is the work by John Muller from DreamCity, an organization that does some serious community building in D.C. — so much they've earned a nomination for the Mayor's Art Award, which will be handed out next month at the Kennedy Center. Muller presents a photographic storyboard of DreamCity's upcoming play Southside, "a call for non-violence within the communities and neighborhoods of not only Washington, D.C., but throughout the country." While we love art for its own sake, we love D.C. even more and are excited to see a gallery focused so closely on its community and the people living in its own backyard.
