Wendy Schwartz, BOX 2017

Gallery Route One is poised to present once again its most successful fundraiser, an incredible idea they call THE BOX SHOW, which involves 150 artists, 150 boxes, and seven weeks of fantastical, wild, imaginative artworks.

Gallery Route One in Point Reyes Station, California, will open on August 11 its amazing BOX SHOW, in which the gallery distributes 150 identically sized wooden boxes to 150 artists. Each person creates a unique, extraordinary work of art that is on display at the gallery for seven weeks, through September 24. Silent bidding for the boxes occurs throughout the exhibition, culminating in the dynamic live auction on Sunday, September 24.

The exhibition benefits Gallery Route One’s programs in the community: the Artists in the Schools Program, the Latino Photography Project, With the Earth: Arts and the Environment, and Social Justice Exhibits.
