Welcome!Gypsy TourTexasRodeo Studio

 

The Rodeo Studio and Gallery is absolutely charming. There are many fine galleries in Fredericksburg, and this one was our favorite. This historic property is the perfect venue for showcasing the captivating western bronzes of nationally recognized sculptor, John Bennett.

We had seen John's work while visiting the Museum of Western art in Kerrville and had fallen in love with his roping cowgirls.


During our visit John was gracious enough to invite us into his studio where we saw his latest work in progress … a commissioned bust of Tommy Lee Jones in his role as Woodrow Call, the aging cowboy in the movie Lonesome Dove.  He patiently explained the foundry process where his clay figures, with all their extraordinary detail, are transformed into beautiful bronze treasures.

We were greeted by this amazing bronze of Annie Oakley ... "Little Sure Shot" ... on display in the front yard of the gallery. For a larger look, click on the photo.
