Ginjer Clarke will be launching a Young Artists invitation to encourage students to submit one piece of art for sale. We will not require them to pay the entry fee, and they have to submit the one piece they want to sell. We won’t display all young artists in one space, but we will designate their pieces with a larger, more colorful label.

The Gallery Directors announced the new dates for the 56th year during the Co-Chairs meeting in February.


Current church leadership is amenable to us moving Gallery back later in October so that we can capture more holiday sales, and have more time to recruit volunteers as congregants return to church after summer holidays.

In 1966, an artist parishioner of the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Richmond, Virginia, held the belief that art should be accessible to everyone, to view and to own. The Gallery at First UU was born, with 22 artists showing and selling their works. This year, the 55th year of Gallery, more than 150 artists are participating, offering pottery, oils, mixed media, watercolor, furniture, sculpture, fiber arts, jewelry, stained glass, and more! Ginjer Clarke, Boutique Director, describes the work that goes into making the Gallery a reality each year.

For a week each autumn, the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Richmond on Blanton Avenue near Byrd Park becomes a first-rate art gallery. Lots of churches have bazaars and craft sales, but I'm not sure any go to this elaborate extreme: a five-day juried show of fine arts and crafts featuring more than 4,000 pieces of art representing more than 200 artists from around Virginia.
