Sarah Brady is giving a multimedia presentation Monday as part of the monthly program at the North Valley Carter House Gallery in Redding. More about her inspiration for art from can be found at her blog, kneadandturn.blogspot.com.
Sarah is 21 and from a multi-generational Redding family. Her parents live in Shasta (Old Shasta) and she attended Shasta High School, where she received the Math Award. Currently Sarah lives in Berkeley, where she is doing post-graduate work. Supported with a McConnell Foundation Leadership and other scholarships, she graduated with honors with a degree in Architecture.
Sarah’s mother is writing a book, which Sarah is illustrating, on Redding’s bald eagles nesting by the Sacramento River. Sarah has done a project relating the Sundial Bridge to the culture of Redding. She spent time in Laos with her friend Skye Featherstone helping Laotians build houses in places with no roads. There is much more that can be said about this humble “shooting star” from Redding, organizers of Monday’s event say.
Sarah’s recent focus as an artist has been on the relationship between folk music and its places of origin. Her presentation will include samples of music and her visual art response. Sarah will also share her work as illustrator for the children’s book that tells the story of Redding’s famous Turtle Bay Eagles.
