Initiated in late 2013, SEDIMENT is an artist-run gallery and retail store located in Richmond Virginia.

The gallery at SEDIMENT showcases relevant and engaging work by contemporary visual and performing artists from around the country through solo and curated group exhibitions and events.

The storefront at SEDIMENT continuously grows to feature art, music, and design culled from local, regional, national and international artists. We feature hard to find, unique items including prints, clothing, jewelry, artist multiples and more. SEDIMENT's storefront also catalogs and sells the distros of various local and touring musicians and artists who exhibit or perform at SEDIMENT.

SEDIMENT is made possible with the input and support of many local artists, friends, and family. Thank you to all who contribute to make this artist-run space a vibrant aspect of Richmond's creative community.
