Saint John Heritage

The official blog of the Cathedral Heritage Foundation 

Enter the #savetheceiling contest to win this iconic heritage scene

To launch our ceiling restoration campaign, we're giving away this framed Rob Roy canvas to one of our contributors.

Win Heritage Art 

We love our built heritage. Saint John and New Brunswick are renowned for their heritage architecture. That’s why we’re committed to preserving and restoring it. 

We love pictures of our built heritage, too.  So when we saw photographer Ron Roy’s interpretation of heritage properties on Saint John’s Princess and Water and Prince William Streets, a eureka moment struck! 

We thought: “What a brilliant way to spread the word about our #SaveTheCeiling campaign for the Cathedral Restoration Project!”  Our friend, Mario Brideau, owner of Mario’s Picture Framing and Citadel Gallery donated this impressive Rob Roy picture. And we’re giving it to one of our supporters.

here's how You could win this Framed Rob Roy 30" x 40" photograph and help #SaveTheCeiling 

Rob Roy's photos of Saint John are legendary. His photography books about Saint John can be found in just about every bookstore in the province. 

Rob has taken one of his iconic images of Princess Street and Prince William Street and given it a pop art treatment. The result? It's a modern take on our incredible history. We think you'll love it as much as we do.

The artwork measures 30" x 40" and is stretched and framed with a sleek black floating frame. Value: $400
