Natural Awakenings Richmond

Gallery at First UU - Our 55th Year

Gallery at First UU is the annual fine arts and crafts show at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Richmond. Over 4,000 works from over 160 of Virginia’s finest artists are displayed.

A visual feast for the eyes, this is not your grandma's church-basement craft show! Gallery at First UU, the 55th annual Fine Arts and Crafts show and sale opens at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, September 28th and runs through Sunday, October 2nd. Sponsored by the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Richmond, located at 1000 Blanton Avenue, Richmond VA 23221, Gallery at First UU is one of Richmond’s longest running juried fine arts and crafts exhibition and sale. The show features an eclectic mix of oil paintings, watercolors, lithographs, fiber art, lamps, photographs, prints, pottery, sculpture, furniture, jewelry, stained glass, paper, wood, wearable art, weaving from 175 local and regional artists! All aspects of the show are run by volunteers, from the jurors, to the administrators, to the designers, to the “muscles,” to the publicity. Our congregants transform from ordinary daytime professionals such as actuaries and lawyers, teachers and IT geeks, to denizens of the arts, turning the award-winning open-space floor plan of First UU into a first-rate art gallery and exhibition space.
