To originate and present contemporary art exhibitions, educational programs, and community outreach in order to inspire people to experience the world in new ways.
Who We Are
GRO/Gallery Route One is a nonprofit art organization, presenting changing exhibitions year round, and offering community support programs. GRO was founded by 25 artists in 1983, and currently maintains a membership of 20–25 artists. Our Board of Directors is drawn from interested community members, including artists. The organization offers two exhibition programs: Artist Member exhibitions and Visiting Artist Program exhibitions, which feature guest artists.
GRO exhibits art in all media, including installation, but does not regularly show crafts. Other GRO events include the Artists’ Exchange and three community outreach programs: Artists In the Schools, the Latino Photography Project, and our Fellowship for Young Artists. Artist members support the organization and its projects by running the exhibition program, paying monthly dues and by doing volunteer work, including staffing the gallery. GRO is supported by contributions from the community, and by grants from the West Marin Fund, Marin Community Foundation and others.
