Arete Gallery opened its doors at 122 S. Main Street, New Hope, in late October 2020.
The gallery was established by Kim I Plyler and the team of Sahl Communications, Inc. Its mission is to showcase artists whose work elevates humanity. It was designed to provide a space for the community to discuss current issues and find common ground through the arts.
“We are excited to be part of the New Hope community. Arete Gallery was a natural progression for our mission. With the world in constant change, it’s important to shed light on the human story. The best way to do that is through the universal language of art,” said Kim I Plyler, CEO Sahl Communications, Inc. “Arete Gallery was designed to give a voice to those works and stories that are representative of today’s issues. To shed light on topics that can benefit others. To help raise awareness and create common ground for understanding. To showcase the stories of those improving humanity.”
Arete Gallery is the perfect marriage of virtue and art. From raising awareness on environmental causes to supporting disabled veterans, their mission is to shed light on the issues of today through the eyes of the artists. United through the common purpose of building a better world, Arete’s global community of artists create a spectacular mix of expression including classical paintings, modern art, textiles, sculpture, photography and even the written word. Proceeds from the sales of art go to benefit organizations such as Battle Buddies (a group helping Veterans with cancer), Eastern PA Arts Alliance, Fresh Artists and many more. Arete Gallery is open to receiving new artists who want to make an impact through their work; to apply go to AreteGallery.org.
