LOVE COMING HOME
In addition to holding client presentations and running our day-to-day design business out of this historic landmark, we also honor the pioneering spirit by celebrating local artists and artisans who make the Bay Area such a unique and special place. We utilize our studio’s vast wall space by making them gallery walls featuring rotating local art shows. Gallery openings are quarterly and private showings are welcome, but please make an appointment. Sign up for our newsletter to receive announcements about upcoming shows.
Open: April 8th, 2023 – May 31
“I am a self-taught artist, working out of my studio in Berkeley, California. I have always been drawn to watercolor, but learning to use this mercurial and mischievous medium is a recent exploration. I am constantly thrilled with the interplay between water and pigment and the individualistic and often erratic behaviors of watercolor paints.
I am inspired by the delicate, simple beauty of the early bud as well as the stubborn strength of bark on an ancient tree. Much of my subject matter is from the natural world — plants, flowers, fruits, and vegetables — things that I find on hikes in the hills, in my garden in Berkeley, or on my kitchen counter.”
Open: February 4th – March 31
Robert Brady was born and raised in Reno, Nevada. Upon graduation from high school, he attended the California College of The Arts in Oakland, CA receiving his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1969. Later he attended the University of California, Davis, receiving a Master of Fine Arts degree in 1975. Recently retired Emeritus, he served as Professor of Art from 1975-2013 at California State University, Sacramento.
Trained as a potter, Brady’s interest quickly steered toward a path of ceramic object making and sculpture, ultimately gaining national and international recognition. Approximately 24 years later, Brady, fortuitously discovered the beauty and merits of wood as a sculptural medium. Since then, Robert has produced work in both clay and wood, with an emphasis on wood. Mixed media, bronzes, works on paper, and functional pottery are also part of his output.
Robert Brady resides and works in Berkeley, California with his wife and fellow potter Sandy Simon.
