Anacostia (BZB) Art Gallery & Boutique

   I've grew up East of the River, in Ward 8 Washington D.C.. In all my years living there, I've never heard of or even visited The Anacostia Art Gallery & Boutique. MY GOODNESS! It's truly a sight to see. If you are looking for an educational experience to share with your family on a weekend in the near future, please  consider visiting this amazing place.

   I tell you, the beauty of this place will not let you down. The bold colors & beautiful Art on display is a celebration within it's self. The astonishing places many of these artifacts have come from speaks of the history and livelihood of the people who created them.

   I will not give you a description of what any of these African Artifacts mean because I do very much encourage you to go check this place out for yourself.

Artifacts from all over the World.

I thought this dish set was beautiful!

I can identify with the woman on this plate.......Praise Him Girl! LOL

   I plan to go back to buy this painting. When I look at it, it speaks "Sisterhood". Not sure if "Sisterhood" is its meaning but that's what I see when I look at it. That's the beauty of Art, the eyes beholding the painting or craft, can gather their own analysis.

  Also when you visit this fascinating Art Gallery & Boutique, you cannot leave without touring the Ancestral Garden. It is dedicated to Kwame Nkrumah & all our Ancestor who lived before us. This Garden was beautifully done.
