Ampersand Gallery & Fine Books

Established in 2008, Ampersand presents monthly exhibitions of contemporary artworks alongside a curated selection of anonymous found photography, printed ephemera & works on paper by unknown or outsider artists. Committed to cultural preservation, the gallery serves as a platform for dialogue between works by emerging artists & the vintage printed matter that informs, inspires & in some cases serves as raw material in the creative process. This dialogue is further expanded by our tightly edited book inventory, consisting of both new & rare titles, with particular emphasis on art, design & photography. Our publishing practice serves as a corollary to exhibitions, providing a printed medium for artists to expand upon ideas & to extend their artistic vision beyond gallery walls.

Our October exhibition at the gallery features work by Portland-based photographer, Clayton Cotterell.
