Emmaus Triptych Dedication

Yesterday I was lucky enough to photograph the Dedication of the Emmaus Triptych paintings by Pennsylvania’s own preeminent realist painter Dana Van Horn, at the Church of Saint Joseph in charming Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania.

After the dedication service we headed over to the funky restaurant/art gallery in Jim Thorpe called Flow, a “sparkling tavern” inside a silk mill dating back to the first half of the 19th century. Why the name “Flow”?…there’s a creek running through it, visible through glass panels which reveal the exposed subterranean space below! 

Dana Van Horn has now added a fourth masterpiece to the other three murals he has painted for churches in the Diocese of Allentown. He is creating quite a legacy of iconic religious paintings in the Lehigh Valley area.
