The mission of the Foster Gallery for Christianity and the Fine Arts is to nurture mutual understanding and appreciation of the connection between art and faith, and to develop and strengthen relationships between artists, the community, and the church.

The Foster Gallery is made possible by the generous support of the Foster Endowment through the Peoria First United Methodist Church Foundation .
Ellen Foster was a member of First United Methodist Church who endowed the Thomas S. Foster Endowment for Christianity and the Fine Arts.  "Ellie" was known to friends as a talented, gracious, spirit-filled lady who strived  to make a difference.  Active in both church and civic activities, this gallery is named for the Fosters in honor of their contribution "to provide partial funding of an outreach ministry of First United Methodist Church of Peoria which will focus on the impact of Christianity on the fine arts."

The public is welcome to all events and exhibits at no cost.

Find PEACE in the Foster Gallery

The Foster Gallery  is pleased to exhibit Peace, silk-screen Christmas cards by Rolan Johnson.  Experience a Peoria Christmas tradition with Johnson's multi-colored mosaic silk-screen Christmas cards.  The vivid colors and intricate detail of these prints draw us into the story of Christ's birth and the true meaning of Christmas.
The exhibition will be on display through January 3.
