In the mid-90s, OTW moved into works by such artists as Charles Fazzino, Keith Haring, Peter Max and Thomas Pradzynski. While primarily dealing in the higher-end graphics market, by 1999 OTW had graduated to selling upper-scale works on paper, such as Warhol serigraphs, to original paintings by such artists as Alexandra Nechita and Peter Max. Off the Wall then began to stage extremely successful exhibitions in Houston at their 2500s/f space on the second floor of the Galleria. Continuing a growth trend over the next decade, by 2006 Off the Wall was representing a myriad of artists and mediums from the grand bronze sculptures of American Masters like Frederick Hart, to the romantic musings of Spanish sensation, Royo. Off the Wall also began selling, in earnest, the touching and poignant works of English painter and sculptor, MacKenzie Thorpe, as well as the captivating and inspirational paintings and sculptures of Markus Pierson. By 2008, OTW had outgrown their space and thus built their current space, a new 4600 s/f gallery just opposite of Neiman- Markus and Chanel in the posh section of the famed Houston outlet, the Galleria.
The gallery is now the home of a vast collection of works by mid-level career painters and sculptors from all over the world, as well as a growing collection of secondary-market works by the likes of Picasso, Miro, Calder and Chagall. Off the Wall has also had the rare privilege of hosting many shows over the past 15 years including a wonderful Impressionist Show in 2006, a Modern-Master’s Show in 2008, featuring Picasso, Matisse and Miro; a widely attended Salvador Dali Show in 2009, featuring the Pierre Argillet Collection; an Impressionism to Belle Epoch Show in 2010, with works ranging from Manet and Renoir to Toulouse Lautrec and Steinlen.
Despite the obstacles of the post 2008 economic melt-down, Off the Wall continues to grow, now as a venue for such new talent as the figurative painter, Robert Fundis from New York, to the eclectic works of sculptor and painter, Christopher Schulz. Off the Wall will continue to grow and expand, much like its home town Houston and sees a bright future as the country winds out of its malaise and moves forward into its undoubtably bright future.
