About ATELIER Studio|Gallery

Art, Creativity, and Faith
ATELIER Studio|Gallery is a not-for-profit initiative that exists to support, represent, and promote artists of faith. ATELIER is positioned as an incubator for both the ideas and the making that generate creativity and visual influence. ATELIER is a community where art, creativity, and faith connect.


ATELIER Studio|Gallery runs a monthly exhibition programme in the gallery that highlights the work of establishing and emerging contemporary artists of faith. The exhibition programme presents solo, collaborative, and group shows of represented artists and new and emerging talent.

If you are interested in exhibiting with us, please contact us.


Through the private studio at ATELIER Studio|Gallery we offer mid-week art classes, arts mentoring, Arts Incubators (intensive learning workshops), collaborative spaces to create, and more.
