621 Gallery was established in 1981 and incorporated as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization in 1989. The governing force behind the 621 Gallery consists of a Board of Directors with officers who rotate yearly. These members include artists, faculty members from Florida State University, Tallahassee Community College, and Florida A & M University, and members of the Tallahassee Community who are interested in contemporary art.
621 Gallery is committed to bringing contemporary art, artists, ideas, and programs to the Tallahassee Area as well as the North Florida and South Georgia regions. We rely heavily on volunteers from our Board of Directors, members, and the art community. Without them, the gallery would not be able to carry on. Please join us by becoming a member, supporter, artist or volunteer, and help bring the best in contemporary art to our community.
NAN BOYNTON MEMORIAL GALLERY
Nan Boynton Memorial Gallery is located inside of 621 Gallery. The Gallery is dedicated to the memory of Nan Boynton, original founder of Railroad Square Art Park and 621 Gallery. Her vision of a community of artists living and working together became Railroad Square Art Park, the commercial and residential park in Tallahassee devoted to the arts. Ms. Boynton passed away in 2002. Her son and daughter carry on the business of Railroad Square, and have continued to donate space for 621 Gallery in honor of their mother’s vision.
