621 Gallery is a nonprofit arts exhibition and programs space located in Railroad Square Art Park in a former 1940s lumber warehouse. The original gallery space was established in 1981 and then incorporated as a nonprofit organization in 1989.
The governing force behind 621 Gallery is the Board of Directors who are members of the Tallahassee community with an interest in sustaining the arts. With the help of dedicated volunteers and interns 621 Gallery continues to be the primary outlet for contemporary arts in the region.
621 Gallery exists to expose the creative process, to platform significant conversations around our diverse communities and support artists careers. 621 Gallery is connecting our audience to shifting cultural landscapes and meaningful ideas to empower.
We believe that artists are essential to the fabric of a community. We strive to steward, develop, and support their ideas as facilitators of examination, stimulation, and provocation.
We believe in a community of individuals who have needs and rights that identifies them and realizes their worth and agency within a greater context.
We believe that we are filling a need; by mediating conversation and empowering communities to grow.
We believe in bringing meaningful programming into the Capital, by broadening audiences exposure to new ideas and artists.
We believe in transparency of governance which does not discriminate but instead creates understanding.
621 Gallery is funded by local and regional grants, art sales, and fundraising events.
