About the artist

Annie BradyAnnie Brady is an award-winning artist and floral designer, with a BFA in fine arts from the College of the Dayton Art Institute and Wright State University. She works in many different mediums – torn paper, drawings, pastel, photography and pottery.  Animal- themed art has been a career long inspiration, because she believes “Animals are wonderful landscapes.  I am most influenced by nature, and am currently alarmed by the changing of nature by us,” reflected Brady.

When Brady learned the library’s summer reading theme would celebrate the anniversary of the first lunar landing, it occurred to her the art she will display is directly connected to that “outer space” theme.  Her art reflects the “inner space” all of us need to explore and enjoy, and it is her hope that her work inspires that journey.

A former art teacher, Brady often reminded her students that artists wear many different hats.  “Artists want to know about things, and our art not only tells stories, we act as adventurers and explorers, as well.”  

Upcoming Gallery Opening

"Storytellers" Friday, August 18th from 5-7 pm

Storytellers: A Celebration is a show that will include artwork from several local artists. The show will open August 18, 2023 at the Scott County Public Library. This celebration of storytelling will include a visual exploration of why we choose to tell stories as well as why we choose the subject matter we do. Live music & light refreshment will be provided. Come join the fun!

The Art Gallery located inside the Scott County Public Library is a unique space that provides opportunities to enhance the community’s appreciation of the arts. Curated exhibits featured in the Gallery are family-friendly, easily accessible, open to the public during regular library hours and are free of charge.

The Gallery Curator plans and facilitates two types of exhibits. Solo shows present a large body of work from one artist; while potpourri shows feature the work of a group of artists, each of whom have more limited bodies of work or experience.
