Opening reception is "First" Friday, Oct. 6th from 5pm-9pm. Artists will be on hand to discuss their work with patrons. There will be light refreshments and parking is on site.

Yost has a long resume of art related accomplishments, but in this latest series she uses wet Alpaca, and boiled and upcycled wool to create colorful and sculptural caps, scarves and shawls. Just in time for the fall weather, her wearable art can be obtained at the point of sale.

McElyea is a pinstripe artist who says he will stripe anything from cars to motorcycles. A definite talent, his work is both colorful and complex with beautiful fine brushstrokes with airbrush graphics. He says that he has no message behind this series of work other than he hopes it brightens someone's day.

The show will run from Oct. 6 to Oct. 28. This exhibit is free and everyone is invited.

Resident artists will also be opening their doors to the public as is the case for every "First" Friday.

The local "First" Friday started as a center city art crawl to celebrate art on the first Friday of every month. Its popularity has grown over the last decade to include surrounding areas.

Broadway Studios and Gallery is on North Broadway one mile north of the Old City and one block south of WATE studios' Greystone Mansion between to Vinyard Floor Covering and Knoxville Arts and Fine Craft Center in Wright's Place.

Broadway Studios and Gallery is a collective of 10 artists with individual studios under one roof. The gallery operates a retail shop and offer art lessons. Regular business hours are 10am-6pm Thursday-Saturday and whenever the open light is on throughout the week.
