Gallery History:

Alix Sloan opened Sloan Fine Art, one of the founding galleries of New York’s Lower East Side arts district, in January 2008. Over the subsequent four years, the gallery mounted dozens of successful group and solo exhibitions at its 1200 square foot Rivington Street location and participated in numerous art fairs. Please feel free to explore the exhibitions section of this website to view our past exhibitions.

Sloan’s passion for problem solving and tackling new challenges led her to found SFA Projects in January 2011. SFA Projects allowed Sloan, her employees, artists and extensive network of contacts in a wide range of fields to participate in creative projects beyond the traditional scope of a gallery. SFA Projects quickly grew into a busy, full-service arts consulting agency planning and executing arts-related events, collaborating on offsite exhibitions and curatorial projects, consulting for artists, collectors and businesses and creating innovative copy and design.

At the end of 2011, facing a significant rent hike, and understanding that the art world is in a state of tremendous transition, Sloan decided to close the gallery’s Rivington Street location to explore the alternative approach of operating as a nomadic gallery. She merged Sloan Fine Art Gallery and SFA Projects into a single creative powerhouse. Since then, gallery has mounted pop up exhibitions and participated in art fairs in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, New Orleans and Miami. Sloan and her network also continue to work on a variety of exciting and innovative projects. Currently based in Los Angeles, while maintaining strong ties to New York, Sloan Fine Art is always open to new ideas and projects, happy to provide an estimate or (if they can’t help) a referral. Feel free to email info (at) sloanfineart.com to discuss your project and/or needs.

About Alix Sloan:

Alix Sloan was the director of the La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles, from 1991 through 1995. During that time, she worked with several contemporary artists who have gone on to achieve critical and financial success. From 1996 through 2001, she worked in film production, managing multi-million dollar budgets and began a freelance career as an art, marketing and advertising writer. In 2001 she returned to the arts as a Private Dealer, Consultant and Curator while continuing to work as a Freelance Writer.

After spending most of her life in Los Angeles, Sloan moved back to New York in 2005 and in January 2008 opened Sloan Fine Art at the corner of Norfolk and Rivington Streets on the Lower East Side. Over the subsequent four years, the gallery mounted dozens of successful group and solo exhibitions and participated in numerous art fairs. In January 2011, Sloan launched an offshoot of the gallery, a consulting firm called SFA Projects, in order to allow herself, her employees, artists and extensive network of contacts in a wide range of fields to participate in creative projects beyond the traditional scope of a gallery.

At the end of 2011, facing a significant rent hike, and understanding that the art world is in a state of tremendous transition, Sloan decided to close the gallery’s Rivington Street location to explore the alternative approach of operating as a nomadic gallery and has been mounting pop up shows all over the US. Closing the gallery’s physical space also allowed Sloan more time to work with freelance clients, guest curate, lecture at art schools, coach artists, consult for artists, collectors and businesses, write and pursue all sorts of other fun and interesting opportunities.

In 2015, frustrated by the lack of practical, straightforward information available to young artists, she wrote her first non-fiction book, “Launching Your Art Career: A Practical Guide for Artists.” Since its release, she’s been thrilled and deeply gratified to receive hundreds of kind emails and messages from artists who have found the book helpful. In 2016, she launched PracticalArtists.com where she continues to provide useful information and services to artists. Sloan also writes fiction and is currently working on new fiction and non-fiction books. Feel free to visit her personal website, AlixSloan.com, to learn more about her books and personal projects.
