St. John's Stevensville United Church was declared Historic in 2012. The church was rebuilt in 2006 and included an art gallery as a complement to its most artistic sanctuary, given that the churches have been patrons of the arts since Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo. The motto of this gallery is "Not all Art is Religious, but all Art is Spiritual," as reflected in the outstanding works in the Morningstar Gallery, including the recent addition, the Beam Collection, a recent gift from the Winberg Foundation of Toronto. Shortly before his untimely death, Carl Beam received the Governor General's Award for the Arts in 2005 for his work connecting native art and contemporary expression. In addition to outstanding examples of Carl's own art, the exhibition includes works honouring Beam by Brian Marion, Richard Bedwash and Ron Noganosh of the Manitoulin School of Art.
