ABOUT THE JUROR: Amy Spencer is the Exhibitions Director at the Richmond Art Center. Exhibitions she has recently organized include Faces Without Noses: The Visual Laboratory of M. Louise Stanley; Empowering Threads: Quilts from the Social Justice Sewing Academy; and Here is the Sea featuring Jos Sances’ life size drawing of a sperm whale.
She has over ten years experience supporting community art at regional art centers, govern- ment entities and museums. Formerly, Amy served as community arts development coordinator at the Nevada Arts Council and as program coordinator/curator at Pro Arts in Oakland. A seminal role in her career was working at Injalak Arts, an indigenous arts enterprise in remote western Arnhem Land, Australia—experiencing firsthand the vital role art can play in shaping a healthy community.
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 20 plus 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 Project Space exhibitions, featuring guest 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. 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.
