Another exciting Art Walk event is upon us! And this month, Friday September 2nd from 5 – 9 pm, we are very pleased to be featuring art by Phyllice Bradner!
The following bio is taken from Phyllice’s website www.katzanddawgs.com.
A well known artist and designer, Phyllice has recently moved to Oregon from Alaska where she lived for 39 years. She grew up
in Los Angeles and worked for an advertising art studio after college. She was Art Director of two advertising agencies in Anchorage, ran her own communication consulting business for 17 years, was the Publication Specialist for the Alaska Division of Tourism for 7 years, and later produced television commercials at ABC TV in Juneau.
A Varied Career
Phyllice has also owned an antique shop, worked as an interior designer, acted as a political consultant and is best known in Alaska for her architectural design work, which includes designing and coordinating the restoration of the Governor’s Mansion, portions of the Capitol Building, the Senate Building, Valentine Building, etc. She writes mystery books with her sister Morgan St. James.
She is accomplished in several different media; as a weaver, her work won awards in the Alaska statewide juried art shows Earth, Fire and Fiber (Best of Category) and Sitka Juried Art Show (Best of Show). She paints in oils, paints on silk and experiments with various types of printmaking.
Combining Art and Humor
Phyllice includes humor in almost every piece she creates, with cats and dogs playing a leading or supporting role. When pets are not involved, she often features images from her family album. Her fun- loving mother was the youngest of ten children who joked, laughed, played banjos and ukuleles, and always cut up for the camera, providing abundant material to work from.
On the first Friday of every month the very best of local art is on display – all in one centralized location! You’ll see talent that has been encouraged and developed by our very own landscape – the vineyards, the mountains, the buildings, the people… It’s nothing short of inspiring. And although the art is the reason we gather, it gives an opportunity for tasting fantastic local wines and engaging with others our community. You won’t be disappointed if you do come out for a few hours. You’ll be surprised by how much fun it is and impressed by everything that Yamhill County has to offer. We look forward to meeting you at Bella Casa Real Estate Group!
