Join us in celebrating the third anniversary of LaFate Gallery, a space that has inspired, educated and most importantly, celebrated the beauty of cultural diversity.
Located within the LOMA district at 227 N Market St, LaFate Gallery has become a community staple, providing workshops, painting classes and art for purchase. Within the three years of the gallery's existence Eunice LaFate, owner of the shop has impacted hundreds of lives with her bubbly personality and gift of creativity.
LaFate has immersed herself in teaching and helping people of all ages and races, which is why her creative spirit shows itself in folk art that emphasizes the beauty of human diversity and the importance of cultural heritage.
Her anniversary art sale on September 30th from 1-6 PM will be a benefit show featuring 25% off all original paintings. Attendees are requested to register at firstname.lastname@example.org
Up and down the Market Street corridor, coffee houses are plentiful. Between 2nd and 10th street there are at least four on Market Street alone to serve the rising resident and worker base within the city. The best part, these are not all your ordinary chain coffeehouses...they are unique, homegrown and have a little something to suit everyone's tastes.
