Homeport Gallery Opens on Long Street

Homeport Gallery, a venture by Columbus Housing Partnership (CHP) to foster community development through art, recently opened its doors in the King Lincoln District. Located next to the historic Lincoln Theatre, the art gallery is open from 12:00PM – 6:00PM Thursday – Sunday.

CHP hopes that establishing the Homeport Gallery will further strengthen ties to the area and helps CHP continue its original vision for NoBo – to develop an economically diverse urban community that sets a new standard in Columbus for neighborhood revitalization.

The Homeport Gallery’s opening exhibition, “African Rhythms in Paint”, is now showing through June 30th. The exhibition will feature the work of local artist, Suzanne Accetta. Accetta drew her inspiration from the richness of West African culture and music, which she was exposed to locally by the Thiossane Institute.
