What makes Gallery at First UU unique?
Our entire show is managed by church members and friends, including the fabulous set up and design. The artists' works are not featured in groupings. Our volunteers arrange the thousands of pieces in a way you might view in your home. Customers delight in seeing various works displayed according to a color or theme.
How do you select your artists?
We have a jury selection process. We use a number of criteria in making decisions on what artwork to accept. In addition to the artistic merits of the work, we take into consideration our space limitations and what will make our show more diverse and interesting. Once an artist has been juried in, there's no need to reapply unless they are submitting work using a different medium. Interested in becoming one of our artists? Visit our Info for Our Artists page.
Is there an admission fee?
There is no admission charge to the show.
How much does the art cost? Who sets the prices?
Prices range from ten dollars to several thousand dollars. The artist sets the price for their work.
What do the red dots mean?
