A Historic Journey on the Street Car

The Broderick Gallerys February show features the work of local artist Buck Braden. A street car window is the setting for a series of paintings portraying historic events.   Beautiful wood worked frames complete the sense of a carriage window.   The first in the series portrays the concept of suffrage, 1916, and other historic events are pursued in the subsequent oil paintings.




Braden is a full time artist since 1988 living in Tualatin, OR.  He states: A successful work of art contains three elements, intellect, skill, and passion.  When these are in balance the work functions as a piece that can communicate the artists intent and elicit a sympathetic response from the viewer.
