Good News and Bad News

First the bad news...

Starting October 1, we have to say "goodbye" to two of our member artists who are moving on to other art adventures. We are sad to see Clarise Kinney (pet portraits) and Bruce Ulrich (abstract acrylics) leave our group; we wish them well and have been assured they will return for future visits.

Bruce is participating in the Washington County Open Studios tour on October 20-21. Pick up a free brochure and map at the gallery.

Now the good news... We welcome three new artists to our group starting in October.

A big "hello" to Mila Raphael, watercolor artist from Mt. Tabor; Susan Schenk, collage artist from Wilsonville; and Diana Unterspan, fiber artist from Portland. Each artist will bring something new and different to our exhibits, and will have work on display beginning next week. Visit our special events on First Friday, 5-9, and/or Saturday, October 6, 6-9 p.m. for our artists' reception. Enjoy the new artwork and help us welcome these talented ladies to our gallery.

What's Happening Outside the Gallery...

RAE CAMPBELL holds regular glass classes at "Gifts and Decor." Check out times and details by visiting A wide selection of Rae's fused and high fired glass is always available at Art On Broadway.

ELAINE TAN was in the Silverton Fine Arts Festival in August. It is one of her favorite outdoor shows because she loves the town of Silverton and the lovely treed venue. She had a very successful show selling her beautiful necklaces and earrings. It was great for her to see many repeat customers and meet new ones. Visit Art On Broadway often to see the latest designs by Elaine and to check out her featured exhibit through September 29.

A Change To Art On Broadway's Blog

I've enjoyed posting news about the exhibits and special events at our gallery during the last year and a half. Starting in September, Sue Jensen will take over this responsibility, along with invitations to featured shows and receptions. Look for a more detailed blog with announcements of what our artists are involved with outside the gallery. I hope you will enjoy this latest change. Donna
