Description:
Sculptor John Noestheden, his wife Cookie and their family purchased the Anglican church in in Priceville 1984. Again a larger scale renovation took place to convert the large building into a studio space and a living space for the family. John completed many private and public commissions during his time in Priceville. The Noesthedens sold the property to Colin and Jeanette Gibson in 1991. Colin, also a sculptor moved into the studio and he and Jeanette carried on with the work of transforming the upper floors of the church into their living space. Among many commissions Colin was chosen to design the major sculpture at the memorial museum on Juno Beach, the Canadians point of entry into France on D-Day 1944.
