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.”
