DESCRIPTION

Steeped in Victorian nuances with a salon style, Antebellum is a casual space for art and engaging conversation. Antebellum Gallery is intended as a hybrid of artistic, cultural, and political iconoclasm. 

The term antebellum is latin for, “before war” and while it commonly refers to a more romantic Gone With the Wind era, we find ourselves again today with American culture at odds with political/religious/social agendas that threaten to blow the lid off its foundations at any given moment.
