Bub Vickers is a storyteller, but not in the traditional sense.
Standing in his new gallery space at 226 West Main Street, Vickers looked around at his bronze sculptures. “There’s a story behind all of these pieces,” he said.
The bronzes tell the stories of Vickers’ life from his days as a cowboy with titles such as “Hog Wild,” “Trophy Hunter,” “Bogged Down,” “Barrel of Fun,” “Veterans’ Day” and more.
Along with his bronze sculptures, Vickers is also a painter.
Celebrating a new space
Vickers and his late wife, Susan, opened Cowboy Bronze Fine Art Gallery in Fredericksburg in 2009, and he recently relocated to what he describes as “one really big gallery space.”
To celebrate the move, the gallery will host a “Fall Group Show” starting Friday, Nov. 7, and showcasing the work of the gallery artists.
