The Glory of Oregon by Brad Isom

Founders Lobby

About the Artist:

Brad Isom, born in 1948 has lived a diverse life. A Vietnam Combat Veteran, a business owner and working in the Hospitality industry led him to finally pursue his passion for art after retiring in Oregon.

This exhibit will feature selections of his watercolor paintings of landscapes in Oregon.

“Artists, as a whole are very visual people.  I take images that visually appeal to me, and then put my style to work to bring about a desired result.  My style leans toward realism, but when the painting is finished, I never quite get there. My style incorporates strong color, often overexaggerated, a love affair with light and shadow, and total control of the pigment on the paper.  My favorite subjects are both the northwest and southwest landscapes, still life and wildlife.

I have completed 500 to 600 paintings in my life; 90% of them after 2000; and will continue to create the beauty I am so passionate about. “

Artist Reception: Friday June 7, 5:00-8:00pm
