This show really is extraordinary, with established and emerging artists.

Artwork by some of "our" Space 7:10 artists plus work of the late, groundbreaking Ethiopian painter and teacher Gebre Kristos Desta __and__ the painter Wosene Kosrof (Howard University MFA), who has work represented in the National Museum of African Art, Smithsonian Institution, the Library of Congress and other permanent museum collections in Europe and Africa.

I'm not certain how long it is up. But if you have any thought of collecting art, especially from artists influenced by the School of Fine Arts in Addis Ababa, call gallery owner Dilip Sheth and make an appointment to see and consider artwork in this very special show.
