This wooden replica of St. Saviour’s Church

After Ron Paull’s show at the Quesnel Art Gallery, where visitors viewed Paull’s extensive collection of various interpretations of Barkerville’s St. Saviour’s Church, he received many enquiries from people who missed seeing his collection. Well, he’s happy to report his collection opens for the summer in Barkerville July 1 as part of the Dominion Day celebrations. Since the show, Paull has added this wooden replica of the famous church by Agnes Paulson, formerly of Quesnel, now of Sorrento. Paull said an interesting aspect of this church is the artist used a whiskey bottle as a template in order to get the round profile for the back, however, she wasn’t able to remove the whiskey bottle so it remains as a permanent part of the piece. This particular St. Saviour’s Church won first prize blue ribbons at the Quesnel Fall Fair and the Shushwap Wood Carvers’ events. The inside of the creation is also intriquitely crafted.
