'Latela is a space of joy. I love stopping by to see the evolution of the space. With a creative eye and community-oriented spirit, the owner and visionary Marta provides Brookland with a unique little gem.

Latela Gallery showcases and sells art from local artists. I've purchased a few items from their retail section, and have considered a few of their larger pieces for my home. If you are looking for art, crystals, cards, or unique little treasures, Latela is the place to go.

Finally, they offer amazing community events from meditation classes to artoga (art and yoga) events, and art talks with wine. It's always a great place to meet interesting people and learn something new.' - Jennie Light, Owner of Bluebird Sky Yoga

'Latela is an inviting art gallery showcasing the works of talented and local artists. I was able to commission a work on the spot and within a short period of time I received an incredible painting that surpassed all of my expectations. Both the artist (Kristin Gaudio Endsley) and Marta were a pleasure to work with and their appreciation and understanding of art are unparalleled. They answered all of my questions and met any request so that I was able to formalize my ideas and thoroughly enjoy the process from start to finish. Latela makes art accessible and enjoyable and it is a destination for art enthusiasts and collectors alike.' - Kate J., Latela Art Collector

'So glad I stopped by Latela! The gallery has amazing finds, and Marta goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome! I'm so excited to have a gorgeous new piece at an affordable price. Marta even came to deliver and hang the piece for free. Galleries can be intimidating, but stepping into Latela was like walking into your friend's (very beautiful) living room. Buying was a comfortable, easy process without any pressure. Highly recommend stopping by, and getting some great, affordable art for yourself!' - Brittney S., Latela Art Collector

'So glad I discovered this lovely little gallery! Latela is an awesome resource for budding collectors without enormous budgets. I had a very pleasant buying experience. The piece I originally asked about (which I'd stumbled upon on IG) was no longer available but Marta was quick to respond with an alternative suggestion that I ended up falling in love with. There was no pressure and zero condescension. The piece was beautifully framed and quite reasonably priced. Highly recommend Latela to other art lovers looking to build their personal collections.' - Catherine B., Latela Art Collector
