In addition to the familiar Route One signs, creative and interesting signs were in abundance.
Gallery Route One (GRO) was open once we moseyed back down the street. The Box Show is really a marvelous exhibit and we enjoyed it as much this year as we have in previous visits. “So just what is The Box Show?” you may ask. This is from the Box Show site:
- The Box Show is the major fundraiser for our non-profit enterprise, Gallery Route One in beautiful Point Reyes Station.
- 150 artists gets the same sized pine box. You can do anything to the box you want to as long as the box remains in the final piece.
- The box can be modified, however it cannot be any wider than 30 inches, mostly because of the constraints in the gallery. There is no height restriction.
- No live animals, toxic materials, or batteries.
- That’s it!
- There’s a silent auction on all the boxes until 2 pm on Sunday, September 18.
- All of the boxes fall under the auctioneer’s hammer during the exciting Live Auction beginning at 3 pm!
- You need not be present to win, but bid high and often!
The gallery has a small section of gifts and items for sale. I picked up a new bumper sticker and some buttons, one of which I wore to work today: Just StART (with ART in red).
I also saw picture frames decorated with rolled pages from magazines, much like the one I did for Day 14 of the 30 Days of Creativity project in June.
Of course all of this strolling and gazing had worked up our appetites (again) so we went to Cowgirl Creamery for picnic goodies.
Sitting under an olive tree, we feasted on wonderful cheeses, fresh bread, pate, salami and tomato salad.
It was such a beautiful day we decided to leave Pt. Reyes Station and take a drive to Inverness along the shores of Tomales Bay.
We rounded out the day with a Geocache found near the graffiti covered bridge on Platform Bridge Road.
It was a really lovely day for both of us. Thanks for stopping by.
