New Gallery Coming to Upper Ninth Street
The Washington Business Journal reports that a $400,000 green renovation to a building in the 1900 block of Ninth Street will provide the Shaw area with a new gallery in early 2010. Bill Basiliko purchased 1916 Ninth Street, Northwest -- a century-old row house that's housed a salon for the past twenty years -- in January and is about to commence construction to convert it into a gallery. The gallery will be called Basiliko and will feature work by local artists.
