DR. CELESTE HART '80 OPENS ART GALLERY BENEATH HER MEDICAL PRACTICE

While attending Howard University College of Medicine, Dr. Celeste Hart took advantage of all Washington D.C. has to offer. When she was not studying, Dr. Hart spent her time exploring the National Gallery of Art along with a number of other art galleries, fairs, and museums. Not content with only visiting the art collections of others, it was here in Washington D.C. that Dr. Hart began her own collection of artworks. 

After graduating from Howard University College of Medicine, Dr. Hart returned to her home of Tallahassee, Florida where she began her own medical practice as an endocrinologist. Dr. Hart's practice is located on the upper floor of the original building that her grandfather, a general practitioner, built in 1954.

More recently, in search of ideas of what to do with the unutilized lower floor of the building, Dr. Hart considered the ways in which she could share her passion for art with the community she serves. Now, thanks to the help of some friends and the local art community, Dr. Hart has opened the Anderson-Brickler Gallery on the first floor of the building. Dr. Hart will serve as the gallery's Executive Director. The gallery's first exhibition, featuring the works of dynamic 20th century African-American artist Romare Bearden, will remain on display through December 29th.
