Music Mission Statement

The Mission of the Riverwest Artists Association

Our goal is to foster reflective, innovative, and proactive art to enrich and stimulate our community.

Statement of Musical Focus

At the Jazz Gallery Center for the Arts we present the arts in many forms and genres. Diverse events and programming have to coexist in our modestly sized space on East Center Street. This coexistence involves spatial issues as well as conceptual issues. The visual art and music we present is meant to be thoughtful, contemplative work meant for a responsive, reflective audience. We regularly showcase musical forms that are not well served by the many clubs in the area. The Jazz Gallery venue features many varieties of jazz, classical, folk, experimental and diverse hybrid forms which combine these genres. We encourage collaborations such as fusions of musical forms with poetry and other forms of expression. We also give a forum for less experienced musicians to gain experience playing in front of an audience.
