Ongoing: HISTORICAL SOCIETY ART SALE
The initial success of our online art sale caused us to reach out to other consignors, which resulted in many new White Mountain paintings added to our sale. Over 50 19th-century offerings, including paintings by George Inness, Samuel Lancaster Gerry, Frank Shapleigh, John White Allen Scott, Benjamin Champney, and many more. We have a number of new to market Erik Koeppel’s, both from the artist and consignors. Bill Davis is also represented with our contemporary artists, along with several others. We have added a “Special” section with lower priced items by local favorites: Myke Morton, Marty Sage Gilman, and Richard Packer. The paintings will be sent to you with no shipping costs.  To view the online catalogue, go to https://www.jacksonhistory.org/artshow.html. If you don’t see a 5-page catalogue, refresh your screen. Paintings will be added as new consignments arrive. If you wish to consign paintings or have questions, contact Warren Schomaker at 603-383-9922 or  info@jacksonhistory.org.

Notes: 

  • MASKS: We have a small supply of homemade masks, prepared as an additional form of community support and ministry. These were lovingly sewn by Meg Phillips. Each is packaged in a ziploc bag and they are available in the front hall of the church sanctuary (doors open 24/7). We hope to get them out to people who most need them. Some are being distributed directly, others are simply there for pickup. If you need a mask, and these are all gone, please contact the church.
  • SUPPORT: Do you need support of any kind? We have volunteers ready to assist with errands and other projects (via library’s Jackson Bridge listserv), access to emergency supplies, and Rev Gail is available for emotional and spiritual companionship. Call Rev Gail directly at 978.273.0308 or email the church: jcchurch@jacksoncommunitychurch.org
