White Stone Gallery, which opened in 2002 as Lime Street Gallery, represents artists who exemplify the best in contemporary fine art that has been influenced by Christian faith. For those not interested in the faith aspect, the gallery provides a place to find exceptional works of art. And for those interested in faith, they have the assurance that every piece opens a discussion that includes a Christian perspective. The work comprises a wide diversity of styles and subject matter. These artists stand out for their distinctive personal approach and dedication to excellence.
I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, ability and knowledge in all kinds of crafts - to make artistic designs ... (Exodus 31: 3, 4)
White Stone Gallery rotates exhibits at their location on Main Street in the beautiful Manayunk section of Philadelphia, PA. The gallery also exhibits off-site across the country and abroad. Represented works have been included in private and public collections, such as museums, corporations, churches and universities. White Stone Gallery is also known for their annual Fine Art and Faith exhibit which is an open call to artists throughout the country.
