Art Gallerythis month molly bradley: oakland birds
This month we're very happy to present the glowing ink and paper meditations of Grow Your Oakland family member Molly Bradley. Molly is an aspiring children's book illustrator and is pleased to have been inspired by Grow Your Oakland and the birds of Oakland to develop this series of prints. She is appreciative of the diverse and really cool wildlife here, and also of the accessibility of linoleum and rubber stamps for printmaking.
Molly's bird prints are homages to some of the familiar winged wildlife in town. The crowd-pleasing Black Phoebe and the bad-mouthed Pigeon get equal treatment as the graceful and intriguing subjects of richly textured portraits, with each bird's essence elegantly depicted. Molly's uniquely-rendered images of common urban residents honor our daily birds and are clearly informed by an awareness of their value--basically, we love that.
Even better, Molly's Oakland bird prints are available exclusively in our store in both digital and hand-printed formats starting at a supremely affordable $10. Pick up a print, support local art and show your love for Oakland's feathered life all at once--the makings of a great day.
