“Welcome to St. John’s”. SOLD

The southern approach to St. John’s is a forested path.  Along the way you will discover the welcoming red doors to the vestibule, happy canines, friends old and new and if you look carefully, the structures of childhood imagination.  Notice the four corners suggesting reference to the forest that has sheltered the chapel since 1927.  This unique painting served as the template creating the smaller “Giclee” print.

Dimensions:   19 x 29 inches

The Tower of St. John’s. Sold

In the early years, the tower platform of St. John’s offered dramatic views of Lake Winnipesaukee.  Today those views are blocked by decades of forest growth but the view still exists in art and memory.

Dimensions:    28 x 5 inches

“Chapel Nave and Sanctuary”. SOLD

The interior perspective of the Chapel is highlighted by the stainglass eagle of St. John’s soaring over the Birch wood altar and the charming light of taper candles.

Dimensions.  12 1/5 x 5 inches

“Light of the Memorial Window” SOLD

There are ten windows surrounding the chapel interior that provide the primary light source for Sunday services.  Each offers an enchanting view of the natural world to be found outside.

Dimensions:  7 1/2 x 5 inches

“Summer Sounds”. SOLD

St. John’s antique Estey pump organ arrived in the 1960s and was actually a “modern” addition to Chapel worship. In the early decades of the chapel’s service (1920s – 1950s) music was performed a capella. 

Dimension:  7 1/2 x 5 inches

Minimum bid:  $300
