“When I’m work­ing on a piece, I tend to have a lot of sel­f­re­flec­tion. I think about the per­son­al­i­ties of the an­i­mals and their lives in the wild. In­vari­ably, I be­gin to see the spirit of those an­i­mals ap­plied in my life.”

— Ray­mond Gibby, owner, Gibby Bronze

Since 2001, Ray­mond Gibby of Gibby Bronze has been sculpt­ing wildlife bronzes. For him, the suc­cess of a piece de­pends on how well the viewer can emo­tion­ally con­nect with the sub­ject mat­ter. The goal for Gibby is to have the col­lec­tor first be drawn to his work by us­ing at­trac­tive artis­tic qual­i­ties, but then to fur­ther be en­riched by the deeper mes­sages con­tained within the spirit of the sub­ject mat­ter.

Mov­ing for­ward, Gibby will con­tinue to in­crease Old West and Na­tive Amer­i­can themes in his work. Wildlife and farm life sub­ject mat­ter will al­ways be a ma­jor part of Gibby’s port­fo­lio. For fu­ture cre­ations he hopes to in­cor­po­rate mul­ti­ple sculpt­ing styles within the same piece.

The up­com­ing year will find Gibby show­ing his work with each of his six gallery rep­re­sen­ta­tives in Jack­son Hole, Wy­oming; Dal­las, Texas; Park City, Utah; Santa Fe, New Mex­ico; Scotts­dale, Ari­zona; and Sedona, Ari­zona. In ad­di­tion he will be show­ing his work at the 50th an­nual Mon­tain Oys­ter Club Con­tem­po­rary Western Art Show and Sale on Sun­day, Novem­ber 24 in Tuc­son, Ari­zona; Na­ture Works Art Show in March 2020 in Bro­ken Ar­row, Ok­la­homa; The Dal­las Sa­fari Club Show in Jan­uary 2020 in Dal­las, Texas; and The Sig­na­ture Gallery Artists Show dur­ing the Santa Fe In­dian Mar­ket from Au­gust 15 to 17, 2020, in Santa Fe, New Mex­ico.
