MacNab Street Church

Hamilton Sketches

First Day of Sketching MacNab Church
First Day of Sketching MacNab Church

Very difficult subject because there is no good location to view the church from.

The front door of the church is blocked by the street immediately outside its front doors, the railway tracks, and the Hunter Street.

The only good sketching location is on Hunter Street that has a very narrow side-walk with lots of cars and people passing by.  Got lots of positive comments from the people from the neighbourhood.

With all the challenges, I didn’t get much done on the first day.

Below is the results of my efforts.

Inspired by architecture and landscapes, my art explores our relationship to place, memory and identity. As a mid career artist, my art practice includes: painting, murals, short films, and sound art.

This is the official web site of the Save Century Manor Task Force 2 (CMTF2). This task force was created not only to draw attention to the existence of Century Manor, an important Hamilton heritage building in danger of demolition by neglect, but also to provide information on Century Manor and to gain support within and outside our community for our ongoing fight to save and preserve this heritage building through restoration and adaptive reuse.
