PRESS RELEASE: OFFRAMP ONLINE TO DEBUT IN SEPTMEBER
July 12, 2017
Jane Chafin, former director of Offramp Gallery in Pasadena, CA, is pleased to announce a new venture, Offramp Online, debuting in September 2017. Offramp Online is an online art gallery with a twist: Exhibitions will be mounted online and work offered for sale, while actual events, such as openings, closings and artists’ talks, will be held at the artists’ studios. Studio visits to view the work will be scheduled by appointment for the duration of the show.
Since artists will be more actively partnering with Offramp Online, and the gallery’s overhead will be significantly less than that of a bricks-and-mortar gallery, artists will receive a larger percentage of the sales than the traditional 50/50 split.
Offramp Online will be built on Chafin’s existing online gallery and blog, Jane Chafin: Offramp. Features such as online-only group exhibitions (Politically Inspired Art I, Politically Inspired Art II, RED!, Self Portraits), blog posts, Image of the Week, and the bookstore will remain in place.
Joining Chafin at Offramp Online as Chief Operating Officer will be her husband and partner, retired architect, Chaz Alexander.
The two inaugural exhibitions will be solo shows by Echiko Ohira and Minoru Ohira, both formerly represented by Offramp Gallery. The opening reception will take place at their San Gabriel, CA studios. Dates and details TBA.
