About The Parish Gallery

The Parish Gallery is a non-profit art space located within Trinity Episcopal Church at Euclid and Washington in the Central West End neighborhood of St. Louis. This gallery is an outgrowth of a long-lived arts committee within the church, which has for many years mounted exhibits featuring the work of the talented artists within the church. Now, following a renovation of our north parish hall, we are opening our doors to the St. Louis arts community, and offering all artists in the area the opportunity to exhibit their work in the new Parish Gallery.

Mission Statement

The Parish Gallery supports local and regional artists from all backgrounds, who work in a range of styles and mediums, from traditional to experimental. We seek artists whose works reflect the values of Trinity Episcopal Church, including social justice, community involvement, multiculturalism, intersectionality, spirituality and regional history.

Gallery Policies

The Parish Gallery is located in and affiliated with Trinity Church in the Central West End, an Episcopal Church located at Euclid and Washington in the Central West End. The gallery embodies the progressive theology of our church--while we take a broad approach to art, anything short of blasphemous is open for consideration. The gallery functions as a not-for-profit and does not directly engage in sales nor do we take sales commissions. The gallery will refer interested buyers directly to the artist. There is no cost to the artist for applying or exhibiting at the Parish Gallery.
