The Georgia Annwell Gallery

The Georgia Annwell Gallery, part of the Community Media Center of Marin, is located at 819 A Street in downtown San Rafael. The gallery was named after Georgia Annwell, an eclectic artist and prolific producer at CMCM. As a member of CMCM and the Novato Arts Center at Hamilton Field, Annwell created over 150 exhibitions while also working on the production of a three-part documentary series titled “Senior Artist of Marin.”

"Great art challenges not only the viewer but also the artists who create it. Most artists paint what they know and do it to the best of their ability. A few artists take on creative work that challenges their knowledge and reveals their inabilities. However, when they do overcome this kind of challenge, they realize that the rewards are huge. Artists who need ongoing reassurance that they are on the right track may miss the opportunity to reach past their comfort zone to experience the thrill of pleasing themselves with a painting that shares the truth of their view of the world."

The gallery helps to advance CMCM’s mission of promoting cultural arts, community media, and civic engagement by showcasing the work of established and emerging artists.
