About Christine Neptune

Christine Neptune founded Neptune Fine Art in 2001 after nearly twenty years of professional experience working in auction houses, museums, and fine art galleries in Manhattan. Her first tiny gallery in NYC was located on East 72nd Street, exhibiting Modern and Contemporary art. After working with increasingly large pieces and publishing editions, she moved to a space on 25th Street in Chelsea.

In 2011 she made the personal and professional move to Washington, DC to share an exhibition space with her husband, gallery owner Robert Brown.

Neptune Fine Art has collaborated with established artists including Jennifer Bartlett, Vija Celmins, Wolf Kahn, James Siena, Adam Pendleton, Mickalene Thomas, and Jenny Holzer as well as many artists in the District of Columbia/Maryland, Virginia region. Neptune Fine Art has placed editions in The National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; The Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; The Baltimore Museum of Art; The Philadelphia Museum of Art; Cincinnati Art Museum; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; and more.

Christine also works with private collectors to handle discreet and confidential acquisitions and sales for clients worldwide. She regularly meets with clients in her gallery in Washington, D.C. and by appointment in New York City. She has been an ArtTable member since 2000!

About the exhibition

gallery neptune and brown is delighted to present its second exhibition with Frank Stewart. During the past two years, when it wasn’t possible to travel and take photographs, Stewart combed through his archives. The resulting exhibition is a varied collection of photographs spanning the last thirty years. Many of the photos have never before been on view. Stewart’s work centers around communities in Africa and its diaspora in the United States and in Cuba, starting in the 1970s. In the same period, he began photographing jazz clubs and their musicians. For more about the exhibition, visit gallery neptune and brown’s website.
