b.1976

Raymond Gibby, was born in 1976 and grew up in the foothills outside of Riverside, CA where he spent countless hours interacting with nature and wildlife. His grandfather and many other members of his extended family were artists and so his interest in art came instinctively. He began selling his art in his senior year in highschool, under the mentorship of professional artist Judy Eriksen. His artwork began to include 3D sculpture in 1997 when he landed his first freelance job as a commercial artist creating works that were used at California amusement parks like Knotts Berry Farm and Sea World . Then in 2001 he landed a job with an art foundry in Springville, UT and he began to create a portfolio of bronze sculptures during his off hours and began selling his work in fine art galleries in tourist cities in various states.

Since beginning his fine art career as a bronze sculpture, his work has since reached collectors in just about every area of the U.S. and in many parts of the world. Along with being a very prolific wildlife sculptor, he has created a number of figurative western pieces and significant commissioned works for the movie industry, cities, and universities. large corporations, college and professional sports, including the NFL, the NCAA, and NASCAR.

He likes to tell stories and show off various aspects of the human condition using the innate personalities of animals. For Gibby, art is a language of the spirit. When done effectively it should communicate something to the soul of the viewer. So he tries to hone his skills and knowledge of animal anatomy and behavior so that that communication rings clear and speaks true.

Gibby is an award winning Nature Works Artist, a lifetime Mountain Oyster Club Artist member, and was accepted into the Society of Animal Artists and National Sculpture Society.

After his apprenticeship and early career at the bronze foundry, Gibby built his own art foundry in Arkansas where he continued to produce his bronze works and raise his young family. After 11 years of running his foundry, the demand for his work required him to close down his facilities and seek out the help from the foundry that he originally apprenticed at in the beginning of his career.. So he moved back and to this day resides with his family in Spanish Fork, Utah. Today his work can be found in galleries, and art shows across the U.S.

Broadmoor Galleries in Colorado Springs is proud to present “Moore Art: A Family Affair,” an exhibition that showcases the unique artistic styles of American impressionist artist Robert Moore, and his two children, Anna, and Robbie Moore. Robert, who is colorblind and paints with both hands simultaneously, has established himself as a prominent figure in the art world, and his children have followed in his footsteps.

Robert Moore, a celebrated American painter who is colorblind and paints with both hands simultaneously, is known for his signature landscapes, cityscapes, and portraits. The exhibition will showcase a range of Moore’s works alongside those of his talented children.

“Moore Art: A Family Affair” is a unique opportunity to experience the work of three incredibly talented artists from the same family,” said Broadmoor Galleries director, Jamie Oberloh. “Robert Moore’s impressionistic style is a true representation of the beauty and diversity of America, and his children Anna and Robbie are following in his footsteps with their own unique styles and techniques.”

Robert Moore’s artistic achievements are all the more remarkable given that he is colorblind. Despite this, he has become known for his ability to create vivid and striking color palettes in his paintings. He has also developed a unique technique of painting with both hands simultaneously, which allows him to create intricate details and textures in his works.

Moore’s use of both hands to paint has been compared to the way a pianist uses both hands to play a complex piece of music. This technique requires a great deal of focus and coordination, and it has become one of Moore’s signature methods.

Moore’s colorblindness has also influenced his work in other ways. He has said that he is drawn to painting landscapes because he is able to see the world in shades of green, which he can differentiate more easily than other colors. This has led him to develop a deep appreciation for the beauty of nature and the environment.

Despite his colorblindness and unique painting technique, Robert Moore has become one of America’s most beloved impressionist painters. His works continue to inspire and captivate viewers, and his contributions to American art are truly remarkable.

Anna Moore, a professional artist in her own right, draws inspiration from her father’s work and her surroundings, using her skillful brushstrokes to capture the essence of nature in her landscapes. She works in a variety of media, including oil painting, watercolor, and printmaking. Her work is inspired by the natural beauty of the American West and the people and places that inhabit it.  

Robbie Moore, who recently graduated with a Finance degree from the University of Arkansas, has always had a passion for art and the natural world. He has developed his skills in drawing, gouache, watercolor, and oil painting, and his work has been featured in a company calendar commissioned by his employer. With his father’s legacy of developing artists and a lineage of artists in his family, Robbie’s future aspiration is to make the most out of his upbringing and create a name for himself in the art world.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase the work of three incredibly talented artists,” said Broadmoor Galleries’ director, Jamie Oberloh. “The combination of Robert’s impressionistic paintings with Anna and Robbie’s unique styles and mediums creates a truly exceptional exhibition that will delight and inspire our visitors. Their paintings are a true representation of the beauty and diversity of America, and we are honored to share the work with our community.”

The exhibition will be open to the public from May 18th, 2023, through June 8th, 2023, and will feature a special reception on May 18th, 2023, from 4-8 pm, where visitors can meet the artists and enjoy light refreshments. All works in the exhibition will be available for sale.
