Galloway currently maintains her home studio in Missoula, MT, and was selected Arts Missoula’s 2023 Individual Artist Award for exceptional achievement in her craft.

Galloway has also served on the board of the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts and the Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts, and is the author of service-based educational websites, including: “Montana Clay,” “Field Guide for Ceramic Artisans,” “Library of Cups,” “Random Acts of Clay,” and “Making History.” She was raised in Boston and earned her MFA at University of Colorado-Boulder.
