Nestled among the tree-lined streets of downtown Longview, the gallery is a mecca for unique artists and local artwork. Located just blocks from other unique shops, galleries and bistro/restaurants, it has become an integral part of the downtown art scene.
Come visit the gallery at 1418 Commerce Avenue Tuesday through Saturday, 11 am to 4:00 pm or call the gallery at 360-577-0544.
“The Broadway Gallery is the perfect place to browse and discover unique and special gifts.”
In 1982, seventeen local artists joined together to form a cooperative gallery in a small storefront on Broadway in downtown Longview. The economy was shaky and they had hoped to keep the doors open at least a year or two. Within three years, they outgrew the space and moved to the current location at 1418 Commerce Ave. In November 2020 , we will be celebrating our 37th anniversary. Currently, the gallery has 33 members.
Unique, Local Artwork
A wide range of media is represented including oils, watercolors, acrylics, mixed media, photographs, decorative and functional pottery, sculpture, prints, wearable art and jewelry. Rentals, layaways, gift wrapping and shipping are available. Member artists staff the gallery which is owned and operated in cooperation with the artist members. See our diverse and talented artists.
