FREIGHT GALLERY - Presents Diane Szczepaniak

Floating Light: An Installation In The Freight Elevator

Opening Reception on Sunday, September 22 from 3-5 pm 
Freight Gallery is pleased to present its inaugural exhibition featuring an installation called Floating Light, by Diane Szczepaniak. A painter and sculptor, Szczepaniak focuses equally on the object as well as the space around the object:  “When successful, the space becomes a sense experience that eludes description, but is felt in the body.”

About the artist: Diane Szczepaniak has exhibited her work in numerous solo and group exhibitions. Among her other accomplishments, she won a 2019 Fleur and Charles Bresler Residency at VisArts in Rockville, MD and in 2014 and 2011 she was a Semi-Finalist for the Sondheim Prize at the Decker/Meyerhoff Galleries, MICA, Baltimore, MD.  She was a finalist for the Trawick Prize in Bethesda, Maryland in 2012 and was awarded an Individual Artist Award in Visual Arts: Sculpture from the Maryland State Arts Council.  She has presented annual workshops exploring color, perception, and space to the Dudley Fellows at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Her work is in numerous private and public collections.  www.dianeszczepaniak.com

About Freight Gallery: Freight is an artist run pop-up gallery in a 1925 Hollister Whitney freight elevator in Washington, DC.  The space is 75 inches wide, 95 inches high, and 85 inches deep–a perfect container for displaying sculpture and small installations.  Its mission is to create more opportunities for artists.

<![CDATA[A new art fair model!]]> Found: opportunity
For many galleries, art fairs present a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” proposal. The cost to participate has grown increasingly steep, with many charging tens of thousands for a booth, plus expenses for shipping, travel, and insurance. Do more than one fair a year—let alone five or six—and that number balloons quickly. On the other hand, not participating can amount to a significant lost business opportunity.
Future Fair, a new New York startup launched by fair veteran Rachel Mijares Fick and art adviser Rebeca Laliberte, poses an answer to this problem: it will cut a share of its profits with participating galleries.

<![CDATA[A new art fair model!]]> Found: opportunity
For many galleries, art fairs present a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” proposal. The cost to participate has grown increasingly steep, with many charging tens of thousands for a booth, plus expenses for shipping, travel, and insurance. Do more than one fair a year—let alone five or six—and that number balloons quickly. On the other hand, not participating can amount to a significant lost business opportunity.
Future Fair, a new New York startup launched by fair veteran Rachel Mijares Fick and art adviser Rebeca Laliberte, poses an answer to this problem: it will cut a share of its profits with participating galleries.

Opening Reception on Sunday, September 22 from 3-5 pm 
Freight Gallery is pleased to present its inaugural exhibition featuring an installation called Floating Light, by Diane Szczepaniak. A painter and sculptor, Szczepaniak focuses equally on the object as well as the space around the object:  “When successful, the space becomes a sense experience that eludes description, but is felt in the body.”

Among her other accomplishments, she won a 2019 Fleur and Charles Bresler Residency at VisArts in Rockville, MD and in 2014 and 2011 she was a Semi-Finalist for the Sondheim Prize at the Decker/Meyerhoff Galleries, MICA, Baltimore, MD.  She was a finalist for the Trawick Prize in Bethesda, Maryland in 2012 and was awarded an Individual Artist Award in Visual Arts: Sculpture from the Maryland State Arts Council.  She has presented annual workshops exploring color, perception, and space to the Dudley Fellows at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Her work is in numerous private and public collections.  www.dianeszczepaniak.com

<![CDATA[A new art fair model!]]> Found: opportunity
For many galleries, art fairs present a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” proposal. The cost to participate has grown increasingly steep, with many charging tens of thousands for a booth, plus expenses for shipping, travel, and insurance. Do more than one fair a year—let alone five or six—and that number balloons quickly. On the other hand, not participating can amount to a significant lost business opportunity.
Future Fair, a new New York startup launched by fair veteran Rachel Mijares Fick and art adviser Rebeca Laliberte, poses an answer to this problem: it will cut a share of its profits with participating galleries.

FREIGHT GALLERY - Presents Diane Szczepaniak

Floating Light: An Installation In The Freight Elevator

Opening Reception on Sunday, September 22 from 3-5 pm 
Freight Gallery is pleased to present its inaugural exhibition featuring an installation called Floating Light, by Diane Szczepaniak. A painter and sculptor, Szczepaniak focuses equally on the object as well as the space around the object:  “When successful, the space becomes a sense experience that eludes description, but is felt in the body.”

About the artist: Diane Szczepaniak has exhibited her work in numerous solo and group exhibitions. Among her other accomplishments, she won a 2019 Fleur and Charles Bresler Residency at VisArts in Rockville, MD and in 2014 and 2011 she was a Semi-Finalist for the Sondheim Prize at the Decker/Meyerhoff Galleries, MICA, Baltimore, MD.  She was a finalist for the Trawick Prize in Bethesda, Maryland in 2012 and was awarded an Individual Artist Award in Visual Arts: Sculpture from the Maryland State Arts Council.  She has presented annual workshops exploring color, perception, and space to the Dudley Fellows at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Her work is in numerous private and public collections.  www.dianeszczepaniak.com

About Freight Gallery: Freight is an artist run pop-up gallery in a 1925 Hollister Whitney freight elevator in Washington, DC.  The space is 75 inches wide, 95 inches high, and 85 inches deep–a perfect container for displaying sculpture and small installations.  Its mission is to create more opportunities for artists.

FREIGHT GALLERY - Presents Diane Szczepaniak

Floating Light: An Installation In The Freight Elevator

Opening Reception on Sunday, September 22 from 3-5 pm 
Freight Gallery is pleased to present its inaugural exhibition featuring an installation called Floating Light, by Diane Szczepaniak. A painter and sculptor, Szczepaniak focuses equally on the object as well as the space around the object:  “When successful, the space becomes a sense experience that eludes description, but is felt in the body.”

About the artist: Diane Szczepaniak has exhibited her work in numerous solo and group exhibitions. Among her other accomplishments, she won a 2019 Fleur and Charles Bresler Residency at VisArts in Rockville, MD and in 2014 and 2011 she was a Semi-Finalist for the Sondheim Prize at the Decker/Meyerhoff Galleries, MICA, Baltimore, MD.  She was a finalist for the Trawick Prize in Bethesda, Maryland in 2012 and was awarded an Individual Artist Award in Visual Arts: Sculpture from the Maryland State Arts Council.  She has presented annual workshops exploring color, perception, and space to the Dudley Fellows at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Her work is in numerous private and public collections.  www.dianeszczepaniak.com

About Freight Gallery: Freight is an artist run pop-up gallery in a 1925 Hollister Whitney freight elevator in Washington, DC.  The space is 75 inches wide, 95 inches high, and 85 inches deep–a perfect container for displaying sculpture and small installations.  Its mission is to create more opportunities for artists. Freight is located at 2414 Douglas Street NE Washington DC 20018. There is plenty of on street parking.  Please enter on the side through the loading dock.

<![CDATA[A new art fair model!]]> Found: opportunity
For many galleries, art fairs present a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” proposal. The cost to participate has grown increasingly steep, with many charging tens of thousands for a booth, plus expenses for shipping, travel, and insurance. Do more than one fair a year—let alone five or six—and that number balloons quickly. On the other hand, not participating can amount to a significant lost business opportunity.
Future Fair, a new New York startup launched by fair veteran Rachel Mijares Fick and art adviser Rebeca Laliberte, poses an answer to this problem: it will cut a share of its profits with participating galleries.

FREIGHT GALLERY - Presents Diane Szczepaniak

Floating Light: An Installation In The Freight Elevator

Opening Reception on Sunday, September 22 from 3-5 pm 
Freight Gallery is pleased to present its inaugural exhibition featuring an installation called Floating Light, by Diane Szczepaniak. A painter and sculptor, Szczepaniak focuses equally on the object as well as the space around the object:  “When successful, the space becomes a sense experience that eludes description, but is felt in the body.”

About the artist: Diane Szczepaniak has exhibited her work in numerous solo and group exhibitions. Among her other accomplishments, she won a 2019 Fleur and Charles Bresler Residency at VisArts in Rockville, MD and in 2014 and 2011 she was a Semi-Finalist for the Sondheim Prize at the Decker/Meyerhoff Galleries, MICA, Baltimore, MD.  She was a finalist for the Trawick Prize in Bethesda, Maryland in 2012 and was awarded an Individual Artist Award in Visual Arts: Sculpture from the Maryland State Arts Council.  She has presented annual workshops exploring color, perception, and space to the Dudley Fellows at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Her work is in numerous private and public collections.  www.dianeszczepaniak.com

About Freight Gallery: Freight is an artist run pop-up gallery in a 1925 Hollister Whitney freight elevator in Washington, DC.  The space is 75 inches wide, 95 inches high, and 85 inches deep–a perfect container for displaying sculpture and small installations.  Its mission is to create more opportunities for artists. Freight is located at 2414 Douglas Street NE Washington DC 20018. There is plenty of on street parking.  Please enter on the side through the loading dock.

<![CDATA[A new art fair model!]]> Found: opportunity
For many galleries, art fairs present a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” proposal. The cost to participate has grown increasingly steep, with many charging tens of thousands for a booth, plus expenses for shipping, travel, and insurance. Do more than one fair a year—let alone five or six—and that number balloons quickly. On the other hand, not participating can amount to a significant lost business opportunity.
Future Fair, a new New York startup launched by fair veteran Rachel Mijares Fick and art adviser Rebeca Laliberte, poses an answer to this problem: it will cut a share of its profits with participating galleries.

FREIGHT GALLERY - Presents Diane Szczepaniak

Floating Light: An Installation In The Freight Elevator

Opening Reception on Sunday, September 22 from 3-5 pm 
Freight Gallery is pleased to present its inaugural exhibition featuring an installation called Floating Light, by Diane Szczepaniak. A painter and sculptor, Szczepaniak focuses equally on the object as well as the space around the object:  “When successful, the space becomes a sense experience that eludes description, but is felt in the body.”

About the artist: Diane Szczepaniak has exhibited her work in numerous solo and group exhibitions. Among her other accomplishments, she won a 2019 Fleur and Charles Bresler Residency at VisArts in Rockville, MD and in 2014 and 2011 she was a Semi-Finalist for the Sondheim Prize at the Decker/Meyerhoff Galleries, MICA, Baltimore, MD.  She was a finalist for the Trawick Prize in Bethesda, Maryland in 2012 and was awarded an Individual Artist Award in Visual Arts: Sculpture from the Maryland State Arts Council.  She has presented annual workshops exploring color, perception, and space to the Dudley Fellows at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Her work is in numerous private and public collections.  www.dianeszczepaniak.com

About Freight Gallery: Freight is an artist run pop-up gallery in a 1925 Hollister Whitney freight elevator in Washington, DC.  The space is 75 inches wide, 95 inches high, and 85 inches deep–a perfect container for displaying sculpture and small installations.  Its mission is to create more opportunities for artists. Freight is located at 2414 Douglas Street NE Washington DC 20018. There is plenty of on street parking.  Please enter on the side through the loading dock.

<![CDATA[A new art fair model!]]> Found: opportunity
For many galleries, art fairs present a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” proposal. The cost to participate has grown increasingly steep, with many charging tens of thousands for a booth, plus expenses for shipping, travel, and insurance. Do more than one fair a year—let alone five or six—and that number balloons quickly. On the other hand, not participating can amount to a significant lost business opportunity.
Future Fair, a new New York startup launched by fair veteran Rachel Mijares Fick and art adviser Rebeca Laliberte, poses an answer to this problem: it will cut a share of its profits with participating galleries.

FREIGHT GALLERY - Presents Diane Szczepaniak

Floating Light: An Installation In The Freight Elevator

Opening Reception on Sunday, September 22 from 3-5 pm 
Freight Gallery is pleased to present its inaugural exhibition featuring an installation called Floating Light, by Diane Szczepaniak. A painter and sculptor, Szczepaniak focuses equally on the object as well as the space around the object:  “When successful, the space becomes a sense experience that eludes description, but is felt in the body.”

About the artist: Diane Szczepaniak has exhibited her work in numerous solo and group exhibitions. Among her other accomplishments, she won a 2019 Fleur and Charles Bresler Residency at VisArts in Rockville, MD and in 2014 and 2011 she was a Semi-Finalist for the Sondheim Prize at the Decker/Meyerhoff Galleries, MICA, Baltimore, MD.  She was a finalist for the Trawick Prize in Bethesda, Maryland in 2012 and was awarded an Individual Artist Award in Visual Arts: Sculpture from the Maryland State Arts Council.  She has presented annual workshops exploring color, perception, and space to the Dudley Fellows at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Her work is in numerous private and public collections.  www.dianeszczepaniak.com

About Freight Gallery: Freight is an artist run pop-up gallery in a 1925 Hollister Whitney freight elevator in Washington, DC.  The space is 75 inches wide, 95 inches high, and 85 inches deep–a perfect container for displaying sculpture and small installations.  Its mission is to create more opportunities for artists. Freight is located at 2414 Douglas Street NE Washington DC 20018. There is plenty of on street parking.  Please enter on the side through the loading dock.

<![CDATA[A new art fair model!]]> Found: opportunity
For many galleries, art fairs present a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” proposal. The cost to participate has grown increasingly steep, with many charging tens of thousands for a booth, plus expenses for shipping, travel, and insurance. Do more than one fair a year—let alone five or six—and that number balloons quickly. On the other hand, not participating can amount to a significant lost business opportunity.
Future Fair, a new New York startup launched by fair veteran Rachel Mijares Fick and art adviser Rebeca Laliberte, poses an answer to this problem: it will cut a share of its profits with participating galleries.

<![CDATA[A new art fair model!]]> Found: opportunity
For many galleries, art fairs present a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” proposal. The cost to participate has grown increasingly steep, with many charging tens of thousands for a booth, plus expenses for shipping, travel, and insurance. Do more than one fair a year—let alone five or six—and that number balloons quickly. On the other hand, not participating can amount to a significant lost business opportunity.
Future Fair, a new New York startup launched by fair veteran Rachel Mijares Fick and art adviser Rebeca Laliberte, poses an answer to this problem: it will cut a share of its profits with participating galleries.
