Welcome to Jane Chafin: Offramp, an online art gallery and blog. You'll find online art exhibitions and posts about art, art books, and other topics that matter to the arts community.  I'm not a critic (although sometimes critical) and don't usually focus on the latest releases, fads or news. I'm driven more by a desire to share my enthusiasm for wonderful things that inspire and delight.

If you use the links to purchase featured products, the blog gets a tiny commission. Once you’ve clicked through on one of these links, anything you buy from Amazon also helps support us. (Thank you in advance.)

I would love to hear from you and for this to become a dialog. You can leave comments below or email me at
