Corbin Bronze

The historic firehouse in Rosedale is the new home for Corbin Bronze, where internationally-acclaimed artist and sculptor, Tom Corbin, will office and create in his new studio.  The sensational space also houses a showroom featuring Tom’s bronzes, furniture and paintings. The space also hosts an outdoor sculpture garden, which is complemented with several of Tom’s works.  Countless public and private collections contain Corbins, and Tom’s work has been seen in many major motion pictures.  Recently, guests gathered at the new gallery to welcome Tom to the neighborhood and celebrate the opening.
