Art on Broad
As you stroll down Broad Street in downtown Augusta, be
certain to encounter Art on Broad, a gallery representing
local and regional artists. Owner Kristin Varn and her late
husband Jim Tar established Art on Broad in 2001. From
paintings, drawings, and prints to pottery, woodworks, jewelry, mosaics, and more;
this gallery is a gift giver and an art lovers dream.
A canopy of blown and stained glass dangles from above, mingling among modern,
abstract, and landscape paintings. Displays of pottery, woodworks, jewelry, and a
wide array of unique gifts extend and twist throughout the gallery. Here, art takes
every shape and form and fills every space.
Visiting Art on Broad is like jumping down the rabbit hole with Alice—curiouser and
curiouser! As the Cheshire cat said, “We’re all mad here.” That’s what makes it a
wondrous artful wonderland!
