  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) August 11, 2018 - Celebrating 22 years of showcasing beautiful art, jewelry and fabulous handcrafted treasures from Tanzania to cities across the United States, Luangisa African Gallery will host a !Celebrate Wakanda! gala on Saturday, September 15, 2018 at 374 Hawthorne Terrace, Mount Vernon, NY 10552. Starting at 12 noon, gallery founder Rose Luangisa will be welcoming longtime supporters, guests and potential new friends during the day-long festivities ranging from African fashion and food to drumming and dancing, plus an emporium full of irresistible shopping.

    “With Celebrate Wakanda, our core mission is to highlight and enhance the essential experience of African culture through art, fashion, music, peace, poetry, love, history, and tradition, says Rose Luangisa. “Through our celebration, we also strive to capture the spirit/essence of the Wakanda Kingdom ---Tanzania---a place for us and by us, where everyone in the diaspora has a place she and he call home.”

    An article in Vogue magazine reminds us that “the Luangisa African Gallery was founded by members of the Luangisa clan from Bukoba, Tanzania, which stands for fair-trade, modern African art, crafts, home décor and jewelry.” And certainly during Celebrate Wakanda in Mt. Vernon, loyal customers are looking forward to seeing what Rose has in store---literally and figuratively---in her creative environment. As she notes, “I am totally committed to working directly with artisans to develop distinctive new products that bring to the world the finest, most authentic African accents in art for the home and wearable art for the body.”

    Rose also reminds us that the Gallery’s handmade artifacts reveal slight variances in size, shape, color and finish. She is proud that no two items are exactly alike and that the sales of all artifacts directly benefits the artisans who created them, helping many in providing the essentials and making a difference in the quality of life for their families and communities.
