About GroveHouse Artists
GroveHouse Artists is an eclectic group of artists that have been exhibiting in the Coconut Grove and South Florida area since the mid-1970s.  The members incorporated into a not for profit, public charity in 2005 and have a history of collaboration with local curators and event planners in the community. 

The artworks they exhibit represent the sub-tropical landscape of Florida, flowers, architecture, animals, abstracts and nature.  Members function as a cooperative group that provides artwork for a variety of exhibits, galleries, festivals and parks.  They volunteer their time to help promote community art events, cultural programs and fellow artist by working together.
