ABOUT THE JUROR: TaVee Lee has been the director, coordinator or on the curatorial team handling close to 150 exhibitions over the past 15 years. An artist herself, she is passionate about supporting the vision of other artists in her current roles as Transmission Gallery manager and as the Exhibitions Director at Gearbox Gallery, both in Oakland, California. As a artist, she has earned a BFA in painting and printmaking from Kansas City Art Institute and now explores more esoteric and unconventional work in her own art practice.
ABOUT GALLERY ROUTE ONE: The artists at GRO believe that art can be a powerful force for change, and that artists have much to contribute to the dialogue about critical problems we face as a society. Our Mission: To originate and present contemporary art exhibitions, educational programs and community outreach in order to inspire people to experience the world in new ways.
GRO was founded by 25 artists in 1983, and currently maintains a membership of 18 artists. Our Board of Directors is drawn from interested community members, including artists. The organization supports two exhibition programs: member exhibitions in the Center and Annex galleries and exhibitions by Visiting Artists, in the Project Space.
GRO presents art in all media, including installation, but does not regularly show crafts. GRO also presents panel discussions, artist talks and supports two community outreach programs: Artists in the Schools and the Latino Photography Project. Artist members support the organization and its projects through monthly dues and volunteer work, including staffing the gallery. If you are interested in becoming an Artist Member of Gallery Route One, you will find a link to our membership application form on the Call to Artists Page at http://galleryrouteone.org
GRO is supported by donors contributions from the community and the West Marin Fund, Marin Community Foundation and the Stuart Foundation. Gallery Route One is a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
