Paul Mathenia, Art On Broadway Member Artist, To Have Work Featured at West Coast Art & Frame Convention

We are proud to share the news that Paul Mathenia, one of our member artists, had a new painting selected by Arthur A. Kaplan and Galaxy Group Publishing to be their feature piece at the West Coast Art & Frame Convention in Las Vegas. The convention opens on January 30 and Paul will be present for the unveiling.

The 30x30 acrylic on stretched canvas is titled, "Magnolia Elegance," and we hope to have it on display in our gallery at the conclusion of the convention. Congratulations Paul!

2012 Begins

As 2011 draws to a close, we would like to thank everyone who came to our receptions and special events during the year, who purchased artwork from the gallery, who encouraged us with their kind words and expressions of support. We want to thank our spouses, partners, families and friends who know how much we love what we do and who help make it possible for us to do it. A big thank you as well to members of the media who help us spread the word of what's happening each month at Art On Broadway. We are blessed with many supporters and we appreciate each and every one of you. The gallery keeps getting better and our presence in the community is stronger and well respected.

We will start the new year with a member group show featuring work by all 20 of our talented artists. We invite the public to an Artists Reception on Saturday, January 7, from 6 to 9 p.m. Join us for a glass of wine and a lively discussion of what we do, and how and why we do it!

The above acrylic painting, "Line Dance," by Nikki Dilbeck will be part of our January exhibit. We hope you'll come and see it in person.

"Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree..."

Rockefeller Center and the White House might have some of the most celebrated Christmas trees each year, but Art On Broadway artists have created some of the most original. This is our second annual Holiday Tree Sculptures exhibit and once again we have trees that are festive and fun, elegant and sophisticated. The gallery's proceeds from the sale of these one-of-a-kind trees will be donated to the Community Transitional School in NE Portland, which educates children from homeless families.

The gallery will host a reception for this show on Saturday, December 3, from 6 to 9 p.m., and the exhibit will run through the 29th of the month.

In addition to the holiday trees and our usual display of outstanding original artwork, we have a special gift section this month with handmade items by our artists priced from $3-$20.
