ACE Gallery was an exciting, creative co-op gallery that sprung up in those early heady days that marked the beginning of the Short North arts district. The gallery showcased artworks by Black artists, who also took turns gallery watching. Friends, photographer Kojo Kamau and art dealer Riccardo Davenport were among the early leaders, and many more showed their work there. Now sprawling and bustling, the area had been populated with mom and pop stores and other small businesses of all sorts. I remember fondly many fun openings in those late 80s and early 90s.
