Oviedo Carvings & Bronze
961 State Road 76 Chimayo
North Central

Oviedo Carvings and Bronze Gallery features the work of Marco A. Oviedo who is a visionary woodcarver/sculptor who lives and works in Chimayó, New Mexico. The piñon-juniper dotted foothills of historic Chimayo provide the perfect backdrop for the traditional woodcarving and unique contemporary bronze sculpture that Marco produces. Since the late seventies he has interpreted New Mexico religious folk art styles and southwest designs in his creations. The view of the surrounding landscape is breathtaking as you look at often snow-capped mountains on one horizon, natural sculptures of wind and water eroded hills to the north, and at the right time of the day a beautiful New Mexico sunset on the western horizon. Part of the uniqueness for visitors to this site is its incorporation with the breeding farm of Heritage breeds of livestock that Marco and his wife Pat operate. Heritage breeds of animals include the Mammoth Donkey, the Spanish Colonial Horse and Churro Sheep. Also on the property is Marco’s personal workshop and foundry, where you can get a first-hand view of the process on how your sculpture or woodcarving is made. Oviedo Carvings & Bronze Gallery is open as visitors come during the day between 10am and 6 pm. A big dinner bell that you ring when you arrive is near the entrance door to bring us to the door from anywhere we might be on the property. Come visit—you will have a memorable encounter.
