Default Evolution to Sales of Prints.

OPF has a great selection of pictures more than a few of which are very much sellable! Some of you might already have a brisk business. To get in the right mode, we will reserve the name "GalleryONE" for works in OPF Art Fairs and there will be a new submissions process and gallery.

1. ART FAIRS We are attempting to respond to the evolution of prints being sold at art fairs. So hopefully this May we'll have the first OPF/GalleryONE major booth in the Photo Independant art Fair in LA right next to Paris Photo.

This is still under discussion and we need to negotiate a method that makes financial sense. So we have to be reasonably big - that will draw more people and hopefully generate more sales.

2. ONLINE PHOTO SALES: In addition on OPF we could have sales year round on Photo-GalleryTWO, with Photo GalleryONE representing and selling the pictures at art fairs. We can start with LA and then hopefully do the same in Europe.

3. COLLECTION FOR EXHIBITS IN SCHOOLS COMMUNITY CENTERS THE LIKE: We can also have a not for profit educational Museum of 21st Century Photography which will at first put on exhibits in schools, churches and other non-profits to give disadvantaged folk access to work that would otherwise be beyond their reach.

These are very ambitious goals but we can start the process and see how it goes. We are currently working on item 1. 0 above, the exhibition. We'd love to have your feedback on these new efforts.

Asher
