                  Although best known for her bronze likenesses, Rhonda really enjoys creating whimsical pieces with her trademark titles and her marvelous legends.

                  As a budding artist, young Rhonda began drawing on everything within reach and, often, out of bounds. Nonetheless, such early promise was quickly recognized and encouraged by family and teachers throughout Rhonda’s under-graduate schooling. Naturally, she declared a fine arts major in college but was frankly never entirely pleased with her own work in painting and drawing.

                  It was not until she was married and the mother of two that Rhonda was introduced to the work of sculpture. A sister-in-law, who wanted to take a class at the Art Institute in Wichita, Kansas asked Rhonda to join her…and it was love at first touch. Clay was the medium Rhonda knew to be her own. After working in terra cotta for several years, she switched to bronze after being disheartened by so much breakage during their intrastate move to Colorado.

                  “I want my work to evoke emotion and preferably a grin.” Although best known for her bronze likenesses, Rhonda really enjoys creating whimsical pieces with her trademark titles and her marvelous legends.

                  The Vickers moved to Denver, Colorado, in 1984 and Rhonda has spent the past years working and studying with George Lundeen, “my mentor,” Lincoln Fox, “the best communicator I know,” and others. Today, Rhonda lives in Castle Rock, Colorado with her husband, Tommy “my greatest sales representative!” and works in her new home-studio/gallery.

                          To our Valued Customers

                           

                          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.
