A couple weeks ago we learned that Gallery Plan B had closed after 10 years in Logan Circle. Next up Gallery Neptune & Brown. From a press release:

“Neptune Fine Art and Robert Brown Gallery are pleased to announce the opening of gallery neptune & brown, located in the 14th Street Arts District of Washington, D.C.

The expansion of Neptune Fine Art and Robert Brown Gallery to a satellite space on 14th Street provides the opportunity to exhibit more fine art to a different audience in the Washington, D.C. and tri-state area. This second location grants street level access, 13 foot ceilings and an additional 800 square feet – creating more space to broaden our offerings of modern and contemporary fine art.

Neptune Fine Art was founded in New York City in the year 2000 to exhibit modern and contemporary works. Neptune has more than twenty years of experience in auction houses, museums, fine art publishing, and galleries. Neptune Fine Art has collaborated with many established artists including Jennifer Bartlett, Vija Celmins, Wolf Kahn, Alex Katz, David Row, James Siena, and Mickalene Thomas. The gallery also carries inventory of works by Alberto Giacometti, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, and other modern masters.

In 2011, Neptune established a gallery in Georgetown’s Book Hill neighborhood. She is now looking forward to contributing to the 14th Street Arts District. Neptune states, “There are many neighborhoods worth exploring and with all of the energy in and around Logan Circle our satellite space will give us the chance to reach more Washingtonians.”

Robert Brown Gallery opened in Washington, D.C. in 1981. As a gallerist, dealer, print publisher, and appraiser, Robert Brown has exhibited many local, national, and international artists, such as Roger Ballen, Mel Bochner, Andy Goldsworthy, William Kentridge, Per Kirkeby, Oleg Kudryashov, Sol Lewitt, Linn Meyers, and David Nash.

Having lived in Washington for over thirty years, Robert Brown has seen many changes occur throughout the city. Brown observes, “Accessibility is incredibly important. With a street-level entrance and large windows on 14th Street we can showcase many artists that should catch and hold the attention of new collectors.”
