Art of Redlands

Brad at Redlands, California

There is a saying that a place must be lovely to be loved. The City of Redlands fits that description. I discovered the community in 1987. Warm, intelligent people drew me in and I have spent years there savoring and expressing Redlands' uniquely inspiring qualities in my art: the town's broad avenues, winding hilltop roads, the light and shadow-rhythms of mature trees, public buildings, parks and homes, citrus orchards, and majestic basin and range vistas.

My thanks to A.K. Smiley Public Library, 125 W. Vine St., Redlands, CA, for the opportunity to share some three-dozen drawings and paintings in its Assembly Room, April 13-20, 2014. Artwork histories and personal stories will amplify Redlands' influence on my art and life.

Exhibit hours are Monday-Saturday, 11-5 pm; Sunday, 1-5 pm. A public reception will be held Saturday, April 13, from 4--6 pm. All are welcome. A portion of the proceeds from sales of artwork go to A. K. Smiley Library. For more information contact: www.akspl.org. Further inquires contact: dmccue@akspl.org
