Lamont Bishop Gallery Opens at 1314 Ninth

A new gallery opened its doors on Ninth Street in the former Cre8 Space gallery space at 1314 Ninth. The Lamont Bishop Gallery “aims to shape the next era of the arts by uniting the nation’s emerging contemporary artists with budding collectors. LBG provides the vibrant DC community with a myriad of opportunities to forge the future of the arts through art creation, exhibition and collection.” The gallery space also encompasses an Art Bar that holds selected wines and is available for special events.

The gallery caught my attention this weekend because of its cool new signage and the show visible through the windows (its inaugural show of sculptures and prints by Annie Kielman runs through April 2). I am behind the times, though, as ReadyssetDC and Thrillist have already have already covered Lamont Bishop Gallery.

As I proclaimed last week (in reporting on the soon-to-open Seasonal Pantry store in 1314 1/2 Ninth), what a wonderful center of commerce 1314 has become!  Thanks to its owners for working so hard to restore the gorgeous building and for making it such a source of community pride!

I visited the gallery several times when it was Cre8 and have every confidence that the same tradition of supporting the local and international artistic community will continue.
I hope that the rest of the DC community at large will discover and experience the now newly renamed Lamont Bishop Art Gallery located in the former Cre8 Art Gallery space.
