Comments made about Dawn Weimer Bronze Sculptor
Thank you doesn't quite cover all that you two have done. The sculpture, Dawn, is awesome and my folks are so thrilled to be a part of such a piece. The hours and the love you put into "Mother" is something that cannot be described in words. And on top of everything we feel like we have two new friends.
I enjoyed our conversation yesterday. I also appreciate your willingness to deliver the "Birthright" print to Frame It, Etc in Fort Morgan. If you or Dawn have any suggestions for the mat and frame, please share them with Judy. My sister and I have viewed the print online but still find making framing decisions difficult without seeing the print in person. However, we are willing to listen to suggestions.
The Fort Morgan Public Library has a warm place in my sister and my memories. In the evenings we would walk with our father to the library and read for hours. When we became adults, we shared a love and appreciation for western art with our father. "Birthright" would have been a favorite piece of our father's if he would have had an opportunity to see it. Cathy Bosley, the Fort Morgan public librarian suggested Dawn's work to me when I started talking with her about donating an art piece to the library in my father's memory.
My sister and I are very grateful for the philosophy, love and understanding, that Dawn has about our time on earth and the love God has for His children.Warmest wishes to the two of you;
On behalf of the students, faculty, and staff of Colorado State University, I thank you for your gift of $5,000.00 for Primrose donations (proceeds of sales) for the Equine Ambulatory Division. Your important contribution enhances this valued service in the Veterinary Teaching Hospital.
We were pleased to read about your newest sculpture project and thank you for this additional contribution. "Ram Proud" continues to make a positive statement about loyalty and pride to our students, faculty and community.
Thank you for all you do on behalf of Colorado State University. Ann joins me in sending you and Tom our warmest personal regards and best wishes for a great New Year!

It was so great to meet you this past week, after months of phone and e-mail communication. Your work on behalf of the WAC and Shaner Hotel Group is superb. I can't tell you how touched we all are by the artwork. The realization of this project has surpassed all expectations, and you are a big part of our success. You two are very special people. Finding you was a great coup for all of us. I do hope we meet again. It was an absolute pleasure to work with you and to be with you last week in Des Moines.

MY THANKS TO YOU AND YOUR HUSBAND AND BUSINESS MANAGER FOR SENDING ME, IN RESPONSE TO MY RECENT REQUEST, THE VERY ATTRACTIVE BROCHURE DEPICTING SOME OF YOUR MARVELOUS SCULPTURES, AS WELL AS YOUR CURRENT PRICE LIST AND INFORMATION ON YOUR PERSONAL LIFE AND CAREER. ALL OF THESE MATERIALS REACHED ME THIS MORNING AND HAVE OCCUPIED MOST OF MY TIME EVER SINCE.
AS A LIFETIME COLLECTOR OF ANIMALIER SCULPTURE, I FOUND MYSELF POWERFULLY DRAWN TO YOUR WORK AS EXEMPLIFIED IN THE RECENT ADVERTISEMENTS PUBLISHED IN ARTS & ANTIQUES. THE BROCHURE, OF COURSE, CONVEYS A MUCH CLEARER IDEA OF THE FULL RANGE AND BRILLIANCE OF YOUR OEUVRE. IT ALSO CONFIRMS WHAT I SUSPECTED FROM THE MAGAZINE ADS: THAT, UNLIKE THE NINETEENTH-CENTURY AND MORE RECENT ARTISTS WHOSE WORK I COLLECT AND WHOSE ADMIRATION FOR THE POWER AND BEAUTY OF THEIR SUBJECTS IS THE PRINCIPAL INSPIRATION FOR THEIR UNDENIABLE ACHIEVEMENTS, YOUR SCULPTURES EVINCE, IN ADDITION, A SIMPLE LOVE OF ANIMALS THAT IS OFTEN ABSENT FROM THEIRS AND THAT POIGNANTLY SHAPES YOUR OWN WORK.
SO I AM PLEASED AT THE PROSPECT OF ADDING THE WORK OF DAWN WEIMER TO THAT OF THE BONHEURS, DELABRIERRE, MOIGNIEZ, MENE, FRATIN, AND BARYE NOW ON MY CROWDED SHELVES…I LOOK FORWARD TO WHAT I HOPE WILL BE A LONG ASSOCIATION WITH YOU, AND OFFER BEST WISHES TO YOU AND YOUR HUSBAND FOR HAPPY HOLIDAYS.

Iam so pleased to be able to own just a small piece of your beautiful work. Having talked with you in person at the Orlando show, and again today on the phone, I sense a genuineness that is beyond words. As I mentioned in our conversation, my husband and I totally agreed that your work was the best we have ever seen. We are not art critics by any stretch of the imagination. However, we have a real love for nature, and also raised Quarter Horses. So the "Shows Promise" is of course breathtakingly beautiful to us. Thank you for the newsletter and please keep us on your list for any future opportunities to purchase these treasurers.

Enclosed you will find check in payment for the "Ram Proud" statue. We are pleased that we can join others who will enjoy this fine work of art, and know that with their contribution they are helping you place this sculpture on the campus of Colorado State University. We appreciate your considerable talent and will now enjoy three of your works in our home and office.

Ram Proud looks great where we have him! The eye level placement really allows us to enjoy the great patina on him. The cougar up above on the ledge looks poised to strike his unwary prey. We are really fortunate to own two such dramatic pieces-and of course the sweet and delightful Tamu. Thank you for creating them!

Thank you for the wonderful work you have done on the "Benji" sculpture. It is so wonderful and we are so pleased. Your talents never cease to amaze me, Dawn. It must be such fun to create bronze sculptures the way you do. You deserve all the success you get and more.

Greg brought the bronze to Denver last week when I was there for a few hours so that I could see it. It is absolutely beautiful...all I anticipated and even more. Greg himself was enormously impressed, as you probably already noticed.
You must take great pride and feel an enormous sense of accomplishment to be able to produce something so extraordinary. Not many of us have the ability to do so. With all personal regards,

Dawn Weimer "Touching the Spirit"
Contact Tom to inquire about or purchase any of her fine bronze sculpture creations. "Touching the Spirit" goes a long way in describing her fine work. Always in bronze, never inexpensive substitutes. We accept Checks, cash and wire transfer (call for instructions).
Dawn Weimer Studios offers only lost wax bronze sculpture cast with the utmost care and integrity at Art Castings of Colorado in Loveland, Colorado, ("Sculptureville,USA!"). As each different sculpture edition of Dawn's sells out, a letter is sent to every collector of that bronze piece stating that this particular edition/size is sold out... Enclosed with the letter is a small piece cut from my original mold which further verifies that this particular edition/size will not be produced again. Should you ever come across a sculpture you feel is suspicious of being a imitation of one of my pieces, please contact me so I can look into the matter of possible violation of copyright.
Virtually any bronze can (because of the NEW 3-D technology) NOW be made a larger Table-size or even larger lifesize and/or monumental... Look for announcements of NEW enlargements of several of Dawn's bronze sculptures soon! Inquiries for all these various sizes are welcome.
