Offramp Gallery is pleased to present Seattle-based artist and recent Pollock-Krasner grant recipient, Rick Araluce's Fragments of a Life, West, in conjunction with Rick Araluce: Constructions, at Offramp Gallery from January 11-February 22, 2009. 

Fragments of a Life, West is the latest in a series of "treasure hunts" that have taken place in Seattle and New York City. Araluce will hide and photograph hand-crafted miniatures in Old Town Pasadena and the Culver City Art District, beginning the week of January 12, 2009. The photos and locations will then be placed on his website, allowing viewers to find and see the miniatures in place.

Since the items will not be permanently fixed in place, Araluce asks that you resist the temptation to pluck them from their locations so others might enjoy them.

Offramp Gallery is pleased to announce the upcoming solo exhibition, Rick Araluce: Constructions, January 11 – February 22, 2009 with an opening reception on Sunday, January 11 from 2-5pm. Seattle-based Araluce creates miniature constructions: mysterious, unpopulated rooms of the subconscious. Everything in these works is meticulously hand-crafted by the artist. Closed doors, cut telephone lines, a clock that has stopped or a single light bulb hanging from a wire are typical of the motifs that give Rick’s work its sense of dark narrative. Rick is creating several new works for this solo exhibition.

Offramp Gallery is pleased to announce the upcoming solo exhibition, Linsley Lambert: Portraits, January 11 – February 22, 2009, with an opening reception on Sunday, January 11 from 2-5pm. Linsley describes herself as being preoccupied with the “power and universality” of the portrait. Her photoreal portraits are carefully crafted with built-up layers of oil paint and glazes giving her subjects an almost palpable plasticity and luminosity that adds to their emotional intensity. Her subjects are her contemporaries – artists, friends and musicians.
