Based on a long standing vision for Anacostia, ARCH Development Corporation, (a neighborhood Community Development Corporation) is pleased to present Honfleur Gallery. Much as Honfleur, a port in Normandy, France, contributed to the appearance of the impressionist movement and inspired painters such as Monet and Courbet, ARCH envisions its gallery as a creativity hub for this historic sector of our nation’s capital.
Honfleur Gallery houses an array of artistic mediums and styles and incorporates exhibitions that reach all ages, genders, and economic groups. Diversity is an essential part of the Anacostia neighborhood, where the gallery is housed, and it’s with that very principle in mind that Honfleur Gallery plans its spectrum of exhibitions.
The gallery showcases Washington, DC, Metropolitan area artists as well as new artists from the United States and Europe. This gallery is a cooperative art space that includes a 1400 sq. foot exhibition room with another 500 sq. foot space above it, which is adjoined by four affordable artist work spaces equipped with skylights. The exhibition space is available to rent for master classes, private functions or one-on-one instruction.
"The Heritage Trails which you create are such gifts to DC.
H Street NE will be enhanced immeasurably by the addition of its guiding signposts of the past and point us towards the future."
