Creation, Kindness, and Community

Golden Rule Gallery was opened by Erin Parrish Duininck in 2015. It began as a collective and that collaborative spirit is alive and well today with a rotating cast of talented women beind the counter, camera, screen, and around the creative table. Golden Rule is female founded, owned, and run with an emphasis on buying from and highlighting women in small business and the arts.

We seek to intentionally support both emerging and established artists and designers and to promote kindness and community.

We are lovers of beauty, creation, and the act of creating itself. We believe that we are all connected and that art can act as a bridge and a healing tool - speaking a deeper language when our words lack. And making the general specific and the specific general in the most beautiful and life-affirming way.

At its heart Golden Rule is a place to come together, connect, create, share ideas, and thoughts and to hold space for one another. We are committed to growth, education, equality, and meaningful offerings to the world not only through our physical products but also through our social justice and faith-based action.

More Than Just A Shop

Golden Rule has always been more than just a shop. We aim to promote kindness and community, placing a high value on art, creation, and the creator. We value an honesty and depth in all facets and endeavors and acknowledge both the tragedies of this life and the overwhelming beauty. We are acutely aware that sorrow and joy are sisters. We believe that art and beauty are healing tools that can soothe pain and build bridges.
