Art at Pebble Hill
“Breathe-in experience, breathe-out poetry.” – Muriel Rukeyser
The Pebble Hill Church Art Gallery is an artist run, monthly showcase for emerging and established artists. Our church is in the center of historically and artistically significant Bucks County and since its inception in 1968, Pebble Hill Church has been a magnet for creative people. Our gallery is in the very center of our church home; the artwork is our ever-changing “stained glass”. All the events that enrich our community take place surrounded by our peace loving, joyful community spirit and our gallery’s colorful artwork.
“By purposefully placing the arts in the center of the life and worship of our community, we honor the creative flow present within us all.”
– Rev. Gordon R. Dragt, founding minister, Pebble Hill Church, retired.
For the past 21 years, the artists, art committee and three gallery directors (Chris Englehart, Cynthia Greb, Gretchen Altabef) have created an open space outside the competitive artistic environment. Our beautiful gallery has given many local artists their 1st show, held successful art auctions, art parties, created found object, recycled art workshops and 263 exhibits. Gretchen Altabef and the art committee are always open to suggestions for shows and events.
“There are no rules, only materials.” – Burnell Yow!

First Sunday’s Art Opening
First Sunday’s Art Opening happens 12 – 2pm in the Pebble Hill Church Art Gallery, main Sanctuary of the Red Barn. Each month we welcome the new gallery artist in a relaxed atmosphere. The artist is on hand to answer questions and conduct gallery tours. Poets and musicians frequently join us. It’s free and all are welcome to attend.
Be aware that this event closely follows our Sunday Celebration and that occasionally we run overtime. Please respect the Celebration in progress; this is a shared space among friends. You are welcome to join us at any time, we are casual. The Gallery event will begin a few minutes after Celebration has come to an end. Thank you.
If you are interested in joining our First Sunday staff, or for further information please contact us at email@example.com.
Children’s gallery information goes here…
We offer artists a place to express themselves in the Pebble Hill Church Art Gallery and coordinate our FIRST SUNDAY Gallery Receptions. We maintain the PHC Peace Gallery and provide artistic support and direction to the Pebble community. With the Children’s Program we coordinate our new Yellow Barn Children’s Gallery where our children’s artwork is regularly showcased throughout the year.
The Committee is made up of Pebble artists who support the creation of art, hold workshops, events and provide an open space for expression. We believe that art is sacred, that creating art can be a form of walking meditation and that our souls thirst for this expression.
To purchase art, inquire about showing in our gallery, or information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, Gretchen Altabef, Gallery Director.
This year the Gallery is celebrating 21 years as one of our longest running Pebble programs!
Please be aware that this schedule may change.
