                  b.1958

                  Margery Torrey began sculpting as a child in New York. Shaping forms was an activity that went hand-in-hand with her love of the outdoors and its wildlife. She would roam the family farm on Long Island’s north shore, dig clay from the banks of the pond, and create sculptures of the ducks, turtles, and anything else that wandered by. Sculpting from her field studies has been a theme in her work ever since.

                  Torrey began her formal training at the Paul Mellon Arts Center at Choate/Rosemary Hall in Wallingford, Connecticut, and went on to study at Wellesley College where she earned a degree in applied art and art history. She completed additional study at the Parsons School of Design in New York and spent a year in Florence, Italy, and Spain studying Renaissance sculpture and studio work with contemporary sculptors. She then moved to Wyoming and apprenticed for two and a half years with a German taxidermist to learn “animal architecture” from the inside out. In 1987 she cast her first bronze and began sculpting the human figure as well, creating mannequins for Victoria’s Secret and The Limited Corporation.

                  Torrey is a Signature Member of the Society of Animal Artists. Her work has been shown at the National Museum of Wildlife Art, Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum’s Birds in Art show, and she has had one-person shows at Callaway Gardens, Georgia, and Somerville Manning Gallery in Delaware. In 1998, AFLAC commissioned Torrey to sculpt their “Spokes-duck” for display in AFLAC offices worldwide. She recently was awarded a large commission by Wyoming’s Northern Arapaho tribe to create a veterans’ monument. The 18-foot sculpture will feature a traditional warrior on horseback.

                  Torrey’s work has been featured in Maxim magazine and Southwest Art, is collected internationally, and is in many public and private collections.

                          During this time of crisis, when our lives are upended daily as new information is available, John Marzolf and the staff at the Broadmoor Galleries want to extend our heartfelt gratitude for your partnership and loyalty.  We are reminded of our strength in the community during this moment and we are truly grateful for our extended family.  We have been contacted by many of our artists, who are also concerned about our current events and they’ve decided to lower their prices during these uncertain times.  We know that as the world seems to stand, still life continues to happen - birthdays, anniversaries, Easter and Mother’s Day all will still occur and these lower prices will ease the strain at this time.  Inquire about specific pieces and Krista or Jamie will let you know the temporality lowered prices.

                          Currently, our physical locations will not be open to the public.  We hope to reopen with the Broadmoor Resort and Properties on May 22nd for Memorial Day Weekend.  Until then we plan to be fully functional through our website, social media, email, phone calls, and texts.  Explore our website’s new chat feature for immediate contact with an associate.  If you have any questions about our pieces or artists please reach out.  Our associates are able to respond to any of your inquiries and will do so promptly.
