'Common Ground' opening party at Honfleur Gallery in Anacostia

When: Friday, January 10th
Where:Honfleur Gallery, 1241 Good Hope Rd SE
What: Opening party for 'Common Ground' exhibition by Michael Platt and Katherine Mann
Admission: Free

'Common Ground' is a collaboration of two DC artists, Michael Platt (a Howard University professor!) and Katherine Mann. 'Common Ground' premiered a few months ago in Paris and is now showing right here in Anacostia! Last night's opening party had a great turnout. The crowd was made up of east of the river residents, DC residents, and art lovers from all around. It was a great event and one of my favorite exhibitions. FYI - Honfleur Gallery first opened in 2007. If you haven't paid them a visit yet you should!

"Kudos" to the artists and the staff at Honfleur for putting together such a great show and event. Including some pictures I took at  the opening party. Not as many this time because my phone died pretty early in the event --- a side effect of having so many great things to document in Ward 8!

If you missed this opening you can still check out this show through Febuary 28th. Honfleur Gallery is open Tuesday - Friday, 12pm - 5pm and Saturdays 11am - 5pm. Admission is always free.

There is also an artist talk on Feb 1st at 2:45pm. Admission is also free. 

The Artists: Michael Platt and Katherine Mann
