“Love Hurts,” especially when we lose a friend. Mary Faith Flanagan (known as Faith), was an avid arts supporter who participated actively in the greater Washington, DC art world. She died suddenly at age 50 on Thursday, January 12, 2017 in her home in Washington, DC from unexpected cardiac events.

Artist and curator friends are organizing this memorial exhibition to honor her vision and vital support to the art community. The exhibition features a broad array of some of the artists that she worked with as an independent curator and some of the works from her personal art collection.

The artworks are for sale. Proceeds from sales of artwork will benefit the non-profit arts organization DCAC (District of Columbia Arts Center) where The Faith Flanagan Memorial Fund is being set up to help fund their Curatorial Initiative program. Faith was an active member of DCAC.

Studio 1469 is a community multi-purpose studio/gallery in the Columbia Heights neighborhood of Washington, DC. Faith Flanagan helped program and run the space with Norm Veenstra.

Studio 1469 is located at 1469 Harvard Street NW in the rear. For more information visit
