The front of this small gallery on Rue de Flandre (or Vlaamsesteenweg) in Dansaert shows how Brussels can be both charming and a little grim at the same time.
I took these pictures a week ago yesterday.
There’s a nice appreciation of the city on The Economist’s Intelligent Life website here.
The neighborhood of Dansaert starts about four blocks northwest of the Grand’Place and is definitely worth exploring, especially if you are interested in Belgian fashion design and/or food.
The gallery, Impasse Temps/Tijd Gang*, is staging a series of weekend exhibits on “Pattern(s)” between now and November 24.
It is located at 123 Rue de Flandre.

Love the ginkgo leaves! Could you tell if they are stuck onto the window or glued to something freestanding?
The leaves are part of a folding screen set just inside the window. I’m almost positive that they are just glued together to make the inside of each panel — not between glass. The gallery was closed the day we were in Brussels on the way back home.
