The art world can be an intimidating place especially for new artists. However, thanks to Chelsea Neman Nassib and Tappan, collecting and selling art doesn’t have to be a daunting experience. Nassib launched Tappan, a digital art gallery, in 2012 with the idea of allowing new and seasoned collectors to connect, collect, and follow artistic talent.
“After I graduated from my BFA I was surprised at the lack of support offered to emerging artists,” Nassib explains. “So, I set out to make a change and create a platform to connect collectors to emerging artists around the globe. And Tappan is the result.”
Now in its sixth year, Tappan has had the opportunity to foster the careers of artists like Jonni Cheatwood, Gia Coppola, Satsuki Shibuya, and several others. She’s also been recognized on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 2018 edition for her commitment to providing an unparalleled art buying experience.
There’s rarely a dull moment in Nassib’s day to day activities. Challenges are bound to occur between searching for new talent, meeting with corporate partners, and being new to motherhood. But she credits her love for reading and network of experienced individuals that she can lean on to ease her stress.
And when all else fails, there’s nothing that a glass of wine and a bath can’t fix. Read on to learn more about how she makes time for herself amidst running her own gallery.
