Watson Gale, Stanhope summer resident and patron of the Indian River Festival (IRF) at Historic St. Mary’s, filled his time over the pandemic by painting PEI church spires. He recently donated 15 of these paintings to IRF for their annual summer fundraiser and the pieces are currently available in IRF’s online silent auction until August 15. Twenty five percent of the funds made from each painting will be donated to the church featured in the painting. Bid online at indianriverfestival.com.
The artwork is on display at St. Mary’s on weekdays from 12–5 pm or visit 32auctions.com/irfinspires to view the pieces online.
