4. DOG MOUNTAIN GALLERY AND CHAPEL, ST. JOHNSBURY, VT.
Canines and art, a marriage centuries old. Here you see dog-inspired woodcuts, sculpture, furniture, and a childrens book by folk artist Stephen Huneck, who owns and operates the gallery and chapel on a 175-acre hillside in the Green Mountain State. After a near-death experience, Huneck was inspired to build a dog chapel from the wood on his property. It has vaulted ceilings and dog-themed stained glass. Visitors are encouraged to post their memories and photos of their late pets on the chapel walls. The lively ones who succeeded them are welcome to frolic on the hilly landscape.
