About Our Teachers

Our artists work and live in your community. Many are teachers at
local schools. Some of our artists have been with us since we opened in 1982. Some are nationally recognized, many have won awards at juried shows, some have written and/or illustrated books. All work passionately to express their artistic visions. All feel that it is very important to have an artistic presence in the community and so choose to support this view by showing and working at the Broadway Gallery. We sincerely appreciate the support the community has given the gallery over the years.

Scholarships for Youth

Scholarships are available for students 7 – 18 years of age who are interested in art classes and otherwise unable to afford the classes. Forms are available at the Gallery, or by email to Susan at supolas@gmail.com
