Alitash Kebede Arts offers a selection of works of art for sale by African American artists and artists from the African Diaspora.

Alitash opened her first gallery in 1994 after working as a private dealer for 10 years.  The gallery earned a reputation for being a source for first time and seasoned collectors, as well as for being a supporter of artists working in a variety of media.

At the gallery Kebede presented the first solo exhibitions in Los Angeles of numerous New York artists including: Al Loving, Ed Clark, Emilio Cruz, Herbert Gentry, Richard Mayhew and Nanette Carter, among others. Author Terry McMillan had her first book signing for her debut novel Mama at the gallery in 1987, and later the gallery provided art for the movie based on McMillan’s novel, How Stella Got Her Groove Back.

In 2004 Kebede re-opened her gallery in the ART 170 building on La Brea Avenue in Los Angeles with the exhibition, "Tribute To A Friendship: Romare Bearden and Hebert Gentry." After operating the gallery for 7 years, Kebede has now returned to being a private art dealer and consultant.

Alitash Kebede Arts offers collections management and appraisal services for corporate and private collections, and through a partnership with Landau Traveling Exhibitions organizes exhibitions that travel to museums throughout the United States and the world.
