GALLERY on My Community is Durham | Gary Faulkner on Durham Daytime

Due to recent unforeseen circumstances we find we must close the SilverStone Gallery on July 1, 2013.

Over the past two and a half years, we have been incredibly fortunate with the generous accommodation provided at the gallery and your support of our events as we showcased Durham's emerging and established artists has meant the world to the artists.

The esthetics business at the back of the gallery has recently expanded and combined with the additional humidity that will be generated and reduced wall space we are no longer able to operate the gallery.

We regret our exhibitions, (Waterfronts, Plein Air, Savour the Season, Abstracts and Allan's Artists) and July to October Sunday on the Porch events are cancelled.

"Since 1989 PineRidge Arts Council’s mandate has been to develop widespread appreciation and support
of the arts” says Cathy Schnippering, President of PRAC “and through the gallery we are able to feature many of our members’ art in a gallery setting.”

Gary Faulkner, Gallery Director says that since the gallery opened in November, 2010 over 130 artists have been featured in the Pickering gallery.



The PineRidge Arts Council is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to enhance the quality of life
within the community by developing widespread appreciation, support and involvement in the arts since 1989.
