About Us

Brenda Kroos Gallery is a multi-faceted firm providing art consulting services which include environmental and graphic design, high quality prints, original art, sculptures and murals. We are celebrating our 46th year in business. Our success is based upon our great attention to detail, highly collaborative spirit, and remarkable service.

Sustaining our extraordinary relationships and continuously developing new ones, we focus on our clients’ budget, creative vision, and always oversee the project from fruition to completion. 



Founded in 1980, Brenda Kroos started her first business by opening a gallery in Old Towne East in Columbus. In 1990, she ventured to Cleveland and opened her second gallery in the Cleveland Warehouse District. Brenda has continually contributed to the cultural life within the communities she has called home. Brenda’s persistence in wanting to introduce artwork to all types of businesses was recognized by several financial institutions that partnered with her to help make this a reality. A woman going into business in the eighties was a phenomenon, but a woman opening a gallery was unheard of. Opening the doors of the first Brenda Kroos Gallery was one of the highlights of her life. This gave Brenda an opportunity to be a champion in promoting artists by giving them a platform to exhibit and sell their art. The extensive array of artists has been instrumental in creating extraordinary collections of art used in many industries throughout the years.
