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 SilverStone Gallery is a boutique art gallery featuring local artists from the Region of Durham. In addition to sculptures, CDs, books and jewellery, you will also see those impossible to find art cards featuring local scenes and attractions. The art gallery is staffed by artists and hours are flexible. If you would like to arrange a group tour and perhaps, lunch at one of the fine local restaurants and browse the local shops, please let us know ~ Gary Faulkner, Gallery Director firstname.lastname@example.org.
The boutique SilverStone Gallery by the lake is an initiative of the PineRidge Arts Council and Peterkin Family
and features original art by Durham's established and emerging artists, the only gallery in Pickering to do so
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.
SilverStone Gallery's mission is to enhance the status and reputation of the SilverStone Gallery through promotion
and marketing of the gallery and member artists, and contribute to the fabric of the arts in the community through co-operation,
encouragement and professionalism. Artists exhibiting artwork in the gallery are PineRidge Arts Council members.
Sunday on the Porch
The creation of a work of art is a process that inspires and draws viewers in.
This is the experience the SilverStone Gallery, Pickering offers to visitors of the Nautical Village area on Sunday afternoons.
The popular Sunday on the Porch Series, will start its third year in May 2013 showcasing Durham artists
as they paint, sculpt, play music
and sing between 2 and 4 pm on the cozy porch setting by the lake.
In 2011 the gallery was nominated for an Art of Transition Award for its showcasing of Durham artists and unique sharing of space
with Silverstone Paddle and Esthetics by Meredith. We jokingly ask if people would like a paddle and pedicure with their painting.
