I first envisioned my monument “Power of Thought” in 2007. It took several years to bring it to full fruition. It has been shown at a couple of events, and promoted to my relatively small patron list. Once understood, the sculpture became powerful and inspiring to nearly everyone who spent a few minutes contemplating the overall concept and the details that flesh it out.

I am pleased to announce that I finally have my dream website, dedicated exclusively for this sculpture. I invite you to visit, peruse the headlines and delve into the vast information this sculpture embodies. And then let a friend know, share far and wide as we celebrate the incredible power of thought, and the vast accomplishments of humankind over the millennia.

I hasten to acknowledge that not all thoughts produce desirable outcomes as history has painfully taught us, which points us to a most foundational principle: good character (some define it as “God-fearing”) is an essential guardian on this amazing journey.


Sculpture in the Park is coming up this next weekend. I will be premiering several new pieces including a beautiful new ballerina titled Swan Lake. One teaser photo below.


The season is ending soon. It has been a beautiful summer although we could use a little more rain. We have been open limited hours this summer but as always are happy to set up an appointment with you at the Living Bronze Gallery to view Victor's beautiful sculpture creations. Or call us at 970-663-4805 to set up an appointment to meet with Victor at his Loveland studio to see what he is working on now. There are several new pieces coming and that are currently in clay. We look forward to hearing from you and meeting you!


We are open today. Look for us Fridays and Sundays too. Appointments always available. We are about 40 minutes away. Or stop down at our Loveland Studio to see what's new and enjoy the drive down Highway 34 to County Road 27 North (Masonville Rd). We are 1.1 miles North of Highway 34.


Estes Park has been a flutter with visitors and we are so happy to have made several new acquaintances from near and far. Hours are limited this summer so it is best to call us at the Loveland Studio to see when we will be open. 970-663-4805 or to set up a private viewing.

Announcing the Seasonal opening of Living Bronze Gallery in Estes.

It is with great pleasure that we announce the early opening of our Estes Park Gallery for the 9th season. The gallery is now connected to our neighbors store, the Himalayan Arts and Crafts shop. So even though we may not be present Sunday through Friday, the gallery will remain accessible. Our official opening day is Monday, April 7.

We hope to see many of our friends this season. Victor and Ejel will begin tending to the gallery personally late May.


Today Highway 34 opens for the first time since the historic flooding in September. We are grateful for the tireless efforts of those who finished ahead of the December 1st goal of reopening the highway.


Highway 36 from Lyons to Estes Park will be reopening Monday. This is well ahead of the December 1st goal!


The Gallery suffered no damage in the flooding. So many were not as fortunate. The loss of life in a natural disaster of this magnitude is the most devastating part. Our hearts and prayers go out to those families who have lost those they loved to this historic flooding. They will be in our thoughts as we move forward to recover from the damage to buildings, roads and lives in Estes Park, Drake, Glen Haven, Lyons and beyond.

But there is good news in all of this. Highway 119 is open from Boulder to Nederland making the commute from Northern Colorado much faster than it was only weeks ago. We have recently heard that Highway 34 is expected to open to Estes Park as soon as Thanksgiving weekend.

While we are now closed for the season, we hope that you will consider visiting Estes Park to support those businesses that remain open. Our neighbors in the Old Church Shops at 157 West Elkhorn lost their home and all their personal belongings to flooding in Lyons. They are in Estes Park and hope to have more visitors come to the area. Estes Park is open for business. As always, if you desire to visit the Living Bronze Gallery, we will be happy to schedule an appointment with you.


Heavy rains and flooding are creating havoc in Estes Park and the surrounding areas. The Living Bronze Gallery is closed today. Highway 34 is closed because of flooding and portions of the road have now collapsed making it impassible. The road could remain closed for several days once the rain event is over. Please be safe in your travels.


Victor will be at the Living Bronze Gallery Sunday & Monday of Labor Day weekend.


Starting Friday, August 15, 2013 we will be featuring the sculpture of Mark and Eli Hopkins at the Living Bronze Gallery. Come see what's new. Here is a little more information about the artists.

Mark Hopkins’ Sculptures are known the world over for their beautifully natural and flowing motion. While his work portrays a spontaneous moment in the life of its subject, it also portrays the deep inner “spirit” of the human or animal being portrayed. He often focuses exclusively on faces and hands, in order to express the very heart of the emotion or experience. And even in the very ordinary moments in the daily life of the subject, Mark manages to convey both nobility and majesty.

Eli is a wildlife artist, painter and creator of bronze sculpture. From bronze sculpture, oil paintings, wildlife statues, to monument commissioned memorials, Eli has done it. As the son of renowned sculptor Mark Hopkins, Eli's passion is wildlife sculpture, wildlife statues and animal art, however he also is discovering figurative sculpture, figurative statues and children in his art as well.


Many people stop by the Living Bronze Gallery in Estes Park and ask how the bronze sculptures are produced from the clay. It is a lengthy process that requires many dedicated, talented and hard working people to produce the limited edition bronze sculptures from the original clay created by Victor Issa. We offer a video at the Gallery that describes the process.


Did you know that the patinas on bronze are usually achieved by reacting chemicals with the bronze itself? Then, when completed, the patina gets a coat of lacquer and waxed. Over time a patina usually darkens.


We will be open on Independence Day. Did you know that bronze sculpture can last for many many years? Much longer than the lifetime of our great Nation. Ready to be enjoyed for generation after generation.


Victor Issa is scheduled to be at the Gallery tomorrow, Friday, June 14, 2013. He may even bring one of the sculpture's he is creating.


Now featuring the work of Jess E. DuBois. Renowned artist and recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Denver Black Art Festival. Mr DuBois is also a Marine Corp veteran and from Lincoln Hills, CO. He was part of the first graduating class from the Art Institute of Colorado in 1957. We are honored to feature his work at the Living Bronze Gallery in Estes Park, CO.


If you stop by the Living Bronze Gallery this week, you may notice that some of the sculptures are adorned with scarves. This is to celebrate yarn and its many uses. A local organization has asked us to participate in their celebration by adorning "Grandpa the Storyteller", "Gazelle", and two other life-size sculptures at the Gallery with lovely scarves.


In addition to Victor Issa's beautiful Living Bronze sculptures, we also feature fine paintings by several artists including water colors and acrylics created by Wendy Armfield.


Victor will be at the Gallery today, Friday, May 24, 2013.

The Gallery will be opening for the summer months starting Memorial Day Weekend starting Sunday, May 26, 2013. We are planning to be open Sun, Mon, Thurs & Fri from 10 - 5 pm. Also available by appointment. We are always closed on Saturdays.


The new season will be starting soon. We will let you know when the gallery will be opening and the summer hours in the coming days.


It has been another dry winter in the area. Please join us in praying for some moisture that will bring the area at least normal precipitation levels. Much of last summer was spent bathed in smoke from wild fires both near and far. So many homes were lost and areas like Estes Park that rely on tourism saw one of its poorest years for visitors in quite some time. So far this year the precipitation levels are much lower than last year.

Most of the stores and shops there are small businesses owned by hard working individuals and families and while some have savings to help them sustain during lean times, the economic downturn for several years and last years forest fires have really hit the area hard. It is the independent spirit that sets cities like Estes Park apart from many larger communities.

We hope that you will consider visiting this fair city and if planning to spend any your hard earned income that you might consider spending some of that at the small businesses of Estes Park.

We value their contribution to city life. Who does not enjoy walking down the avenue and picking up some gourmet coffee, a bit of taffy or maybe even a meteorite before heading up to Rocky Mountain National Park and looking at the beautiful scenery and feisty critters.

The Living Bronze Gallery is not open during the winter months although Victor is very happy to make appointments with anyone interested in viewing his work. Or feel free to visit us in Loveland if in the area.


The Living Bronze Gallery is no longer open with the regular 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. hours, Sunday through Friday for this season, but we will be open on October 21 and on occasion while the weather permits. It is best to call the Loveland Studio for appointments at 970-663-4805 or to check this page to see when the Gallery will be open for all visitors.


Come visit us at the Loveland Sculpture Invitational this weekend in tent 4. The Living Bronze Gallery will be open as well so if you are in Estes Park please feel free to stop by.


We are so grateful for all the positive comments from visitors at the Living Bronze Gallery this season. Thank you for your input.
