Carl & Sloan Says Goodbye

After nearly two years of running Carl & Sloan, we have decided to close our doors to move on to our next projects in life. Our run has been successful beyond our wildest dreams. Thank you to all the artists from Portland and beyond who have entrusted their work with us. Thank you to the Portland art community at large for believing in and supporting us. And thank you to each and every one of you for showing up every single time. Until next time.

David Corbett & Amie Legette in Travel Portland's "Late Winter Visual Arts Guide"

"Amie LeGette’s paintings are washy and exist in misty layers of paint that obscure abstract forms and reference the mystical qualities of the Northwest School while also introducing a dash of digital neon and Blade Runner. David Corbett’s sculpture and ink drawings continue his interest in geometric form and the three-dimensional qualities of paint."

Carl & Sloan is looking for a committed gallery assistant who is passionate about contemporary art and interested in the process of running a gallery.
