Visiting downtown Augusta must include Art on Broad, a consignment gallery for local and regional artists. Owner, Kristin Varn and late husband Jim Tar established Art on Broad in 2001. From paintings, pottery, woodwork, jewelry and blown glass, this gallery is a gift-givers dream and an art collector’s resource. You will find yourself walking under beautiful glass pieces hanging whimsically above display cases full of an endless supply of handmade jewelry. Art takes every shape and form, and fills every nook and cranny.
Currently tended by a friendly staff of four, visiting Art on Broad is like stopping by to see family or friends. It’s not uncommon to see friends catch up over some serious browsing, while often a fur baby is in the shop getting attention. Visit and see what awaits you beyond the purple and green entry. It’s like jumping down the rabbit hole with Alice, “Curiouser and curiouser!” Stop in - you will love it. As the Cheshire cat said, “We’re all mad here.” That’s what makes it the perfect wonderland!
