A new art gallery will open in the space formerly occupied by Gallery Plan B on July 18.
The new gallery will be located in the old Gallery Plan B space, across the street from the Studio Theatre at 1530 14th Street NW.
Former Gallery Plan B Director David Kalamar will be hired on to help manage the new location, confirmed Robert Brown of Robert Brown Gallery.
Nepture Fine Art owner Christine Neptune and Robert Brown will co-own the space.
Gallery Plan B owner Paula Amt announced the closure of her beloved 14th Street art space last Monday.
“We decided after the 10 year anniversary that it was time,” Amt told Borderstan. “Go out on a high note with good memories and accomplishments.”
Amt will not return to help with the new gallery.
The gallery’s first exhibit, “Summer Splash on 14th Street,” will run from July 18 until September 5 and feature artists Polly Apfelbaum, Donald Baechler, Ellsworth Kelly and Philip Taaffe.
Neptune Fine Art was founded in New York City in 2000, an focuses mainly on modern and contemporary art.
