In Magnolia

Kathleen, one of USk Seattle members, arranged access to Magnolia United Church of Christ for our sketch outing today. It was a bit chilly but I dressed in flannel and fleece as I hoped to sketch outside, which I did do.

There were several new people, mostly from Magnolia Art Experience. A couple sketchers left before our group photo.




The facade of the church was very interesting. I liked the tiny flying buttresses!





Note the crow looking over her domain from atop the cross. This was a popular subject for the sketches and some included the crow.

Kathleen had recommended the local Fire Department building. It was indeed an interesting subject. In looking for more information about it, I found this document recommending landmark status.  "Station No. 41 dates from 1934. It is unique among the subject fire stations as designed and built under the Civil Works Administration (CWA) a Depression-era federal relief program rather than by the city. This station is an example of Streamlined Moderne architecture. It is one of Seattle's three Art Deco /Moderne style fire stations."
