We support local artists in accordance with our mission.
We have a jury selection process to ensure high quality and diversity of our show. Once we accept an artist through our jury process, artists pay a $35 entry fee for each show they participate in, and Gallery at First UU earns one third of all sales.
Our artists drop off and pick up their art (and a check for sold items), while we do the rest in terms of hanging, display, sales, etc.
Jury Selection Process
Please apply here before May 13th with quality images of your work.
The photos should be representative of your work, but need not be of the work you will be submitting.
Returning artists do not need to reapply, unless they are using a new medium.
Payment of artist fees due by 8/30/2023 are handled in one of two ways.

Gallery at First UU dot rva at gmail dot com
