St. James Art Restoration and Building Preservation campaign
The church is home to some of the oldest artworks in Georgina. Large murals illustrating the life of Jesus and full-sized depictions of the twelve Apostles, were painted in 1925 by the renowned ecclesiastical artists Peter Charles Browne and Thomas Grant Browne. A century old, these paintings represent an important part of Canadian History, but they had darkened and deteriorated over time.
Responding to the urgent need to restore and preserve the art, the parish procured the services of an art conservator whose work was completed in the summer of 2019. Companion projects to repair the ceiling, paint the ceiling and walls, secure the altar rail and improve the lighting have further enhanced the sacred space. There is a renewed tranquility, peace and calm when one enters the refurbished interior to embrace the church’s 160-year-old personality.
Can you help us achieve our campaign goal?
