San Francisco Bay Area artist Robert Brady’s career spans over 40 years. He has rigorously explored figurative abstraction with a unique style utilizing imagery, form and color to convey messages. Brady’s early career began as a potter; his versatility and skill with materials led him to pursue wood sculpture. Brady describes the initial shift in media as a “risk, but something which made sense due to the warm and receptive nature of both materials.” Today, Brady works effortlessly between clay, wood, bronze and works on paper.
Robert Brady has lectured and taught workshops nationally and internationally and was Professor of Art at California State University, Sacramento for 33 years. In addition to being widely exhibited in galleries across the country, his works can be found in public collections at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, di Rosa Preserve in Napa, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Oakland Museum of Art and San Francisco Museum of Art, to name a few. Robert will assume the responsibilities of interim director of the Franconia Sculpture Park in Shafer, MN until November of 2019
Robert is married to Sandy Simon and they reside in Berkeley, CA
