You’re invited to attend Edit: Sessions at Gallery Edit every Thursday from 7:00-8:30
Gallery Edit opened three years ago as “An Art Gallery for Good”. Every first Friday of the month, we host a new artist or group of artists. We open our doors to hundreds of people who engage with art and artists in an environment that is comfortable and familiar to them. This has led to many discussions about why we are here, what we do, why we create, and, most importantly, why the Gospel is important.
So far, we’ve loved being a part of the visual art scene of Richmond. And now, we are excited to be a part of this city’s affinity for great musical talent. Like visual art, performers and listeners alike can use music as a form of rich worship.
Edit: Sessions has become a weekly opportunity for us to reach our community for Christ. In the past, our gallery has been open from 9am to 5pm during the week. We are extending our hours to Thursday nights, creating the opportunity for more people to enjoy this space outside of the typical work week.
We would like as many people as possible to have a chance to hear about what we do as an organization. We also want to start using Music as Mission abroad in the field. What we do here will be modeled around the world as a form of community outreach where there is no church, and not to boast, but that’s pretty darn cool.
We’re looking for volunteer performers, solo acts, duets, groups, and bands.
We are interested in one-night performances, as well as recurring engagements for bands and artists who are interested in playing periodically for our events.
The music played does not necessarily have to be specifically praise and worship music. We’ve had piano cover medleys, original accordion experimentations, and a rock cover band in our past shows. Anything fun (even poetry, film screenings, readings, etc.) is welcomed to apply for a spot!
Performances are every Thursday from 7-8pm and the gallery is open until 8:30pm. As of right now, sound equipment is not provided by Gallery Edit so performers are encouraged to perform acoustic sets or provide their own sound equipment. The gallery will be opened for performers to start set up and run sound checks at 6pm.
We are really excited for this new ministry and appreciate your consideration in being a part of it. If you or anyone you know would like to perform, please email our Evening Gallery Docent, Ginny Rush at and provide a brief description of your work, at least three samples of your music, and provide a setlist of what you would like to perform. It is left up to the discretion of our Gallery team to determine whether or not your music is appropriate for our space. We want to encourage the appreciation of art, culture, music, and beauty.
