Please join us for the opening reception of the DNA Artists' Residency Exhibition Friday, August 30th, 7:00-10:00pm.  Freight + Volume is pleased to present its second edition of DNA's artist residency program for Summer 2013. Eighteen artists were invited for one- and two-week residencies on the Cape this season, to create new work inspired by their environment or continued from their existing studio practice, either created at DNA or offsite. They are given an apartment in Provincetown nearby the 2,000 square foot studio. Mostly New York-based, many of the artists exhibit regularly at Freight+Volume with curator and gallery owner Nick Lawrence. Established by Nick Lawrence (co-founder and former partner of LFL Gallery in New York and owner of DNA Gallery in Provincetown, MA) in 2005, Freight + Volume was formed by combining the text-based, narrative philosophy and limited edition book focus of its two-year predecessor, Volume, with the motivation to show dynamic, visceral, and provocative new work in all media and dealing with a range of subject matter.
