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.

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.

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.

Nancy Miyahira is the Vice President & Marketing Director for the Georgetown Business Improvement District (BID), where she has overseen the creation and growth of new experiences to attract visitors to one of D.C.’s most historic districts since 2009. In 2014, she and the BID team began to delve into public art as a placemaking initiative for the commercial district. They launched D.C.’s first free, curated, outdoor Light Art exhibition, Georgetown GLOW. GLOW started as a three-night experience with five art installations. It has since grown over six years to a month-long exhibition with 11 installations in 2019.

After a pause in 2020 due to the pandemic, GLOW is back in spring and summer 2021 as a two-part, six-month exhibition with eight installations featuring many local artists. In addition to working on public art initiatives, Nancy and her team oversee marketing strategy, events and communications to promote Georgetown as a destination to local, national and international visitors. Nancy believes in the accessibility and power of public art, and hopes that BID can be a catalyst for increasing opportunities for all. One of her most memorable public art experiences is Desert X 2019 in the Coachella Valley. One of her favorite museums is the Honolulu Museum of Art.

Nancy has over 20 years of experience in marketing – primarily in the retail and real estate industries. Prior to joining the BID, she served in marketing leadership roles for Nordstrom’s East Coast region. There she worked to launch Nordstrom stores in over 20 new markets; The Mills Corporation (national retail REIT acquired by Simon Property Group) – leading the branding for the regional mall portfolio; and Duke Realty Corporation (national office REIT) – overseeing marketing of office and industrial properties in four East Coast markets. Nancy has an MBA in Marketing from the George Washington University, and currently serves on the Board of STABLE Arts in Eckington, D.C. Originally from Honolulu, Hawaii, Nancy lives in Woodley Park, D.C. with her husband and two silly beagles.
