Born in Santa Monica, California, in 1952, Chester Arnold was raised and educated in Germany, an experience which significantly influenced his intellectual and aesthetic perspectives. The rich, dark and mysterious texture of European Art and History provided an indelible frame of reference for all that has followed. He began serious studies in painting and drawing in the Museums of Munich while still in high school, and upon returning to California, attended the College of Marin in Kentfield, and the San Francisco Art Institute, from which he received his MFA in 1988. Exhibiting professionally since the mid-1980s, Arnold's work reflects a deep fascination with the natural world as well as the human condition: his paintings carry the craftsmanly regard of previous centuries in their passionate and moody narratives, while often tackling larger environmental and political issues. He has lived in Sonoma, CA, with his wife Frances since 1992.

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 and Project Space exhibitions, featuring guest artists. The Annex, a small, interior space also exhibits work by member artists.

GRO presents art in all media, including installation, but does not regularly show crafts. Other GRO events include panel discussions, slide talks and two community outreach programs: Artists In the Schools and the Latino Photography Project. Artist members support the organ- ization and its projects by paying monthly dues and by doing volunteer work, including staffing the gallery. GRO is also supported by its Partners in Art, contributions from the community and the West Marin Fund. Visit us at

Gallery Route One, 11101 Highway One, Point Reyes Station, CA 94956, 415. 663.1347,
