Raymond Gibby’s exhibition entitled The Call of the Wild grasped viewers intensely on Memorial Day Weekend . Onlookers witnessed a clay mold come alive in his hands, where a Mother Mallard hid three of her babies under the plumage of her wing.

Gibby enacted a wonderful charm to the experience as he spoke about the numerous influences of his work and how they are ingrained into his path of sculpting. Heavily inspired by Native American culture, the natural world, and his family, Gibby’s works bring forth the many layers to history and familial bonds.

Gibby’s meticulously crafted sculptures enthrall viewers and amplify the significance of stories, nostalgia, and nature in our daily lives. Intricately placed patina bonded with an excruciating attention to detail edicts his work as masterful and a must see for bronze collectors.  Raymond Gibby’s exquisite sculptures are the embodiment of his dedication to his family and all that he holds dear.
