Wandered in to this open air gallery. What a treat. My godson loves dinosaurs so I immediately took photos to share with him. But you should go and plan on spending time looking at the details of this art. From tiny pieces to life sized.

During our recent venture to Old Town Temecula, we discovered Ricardo Breceda Gallery & Sculpture Garden while wandering around 6th Street. Found a large red metal Chinese Dragon standing guard in front of the Gallery. Definitely raises the curiosity level. Entered the small enclosure and discovered a plethora of metal art sculptures ranging in size from miniatures to larger than life monstrosities. On display is a large collection of different creations ranging from a dragon; horses, cowboys & western related subjects, dinosaurs, animals & birds and a spectacular collection related to desert cactus and wildlife. Each sculpture has amazing details and look like the real thing. Each piece on displayed was created by Ricardo Breceda utilizing scrap metal. What a fascinating hobby. Super impressed with the Desert collection. Rattle snakes, roadrunners, Tarantulas, ants and Cactus are on display. They all appear to be life like and one expects them to scurry off into the brush. Truly an remarkable site. It should be noted that these sculptures are available for purchase. Prices range from a few dollars up to several thousand dollars. Neat place to spend some time wandering around and admiring the sculptures. It's a small lot so you can see everything quickly but you will want to spend extra time admiring all the detail of each creation. We spent 1 1/2 hour admiring this collection, and could have easily spent several more hours viewing the collection. Fantastic display. Suggest everyone stop by and admire the metal creations of artist Ricardo Breceda.…

We visited the Ricardo Breceda Gallery & Sculpture Garden. We had fun to look. There were some big items and others could be like ants. It is made of steel. We took our time and enjoyed the items that were there. A must see!

I remember these sculptures when they were in previous locations but this is the first time I have been here. It is not hard to find as you can see sculptures by the road. The large sclptures are a bit big for my garden but so appealing.The choices are great and the prices are negociable which helps. I do believe he has had an open house in the past. There was a metal dinosaur filled with river rock but it was a little much at the moment. I chose a smaller donkey with such a cute expression. It is a metal frame work with a rock body that really enhances my front door. I smile every time I see it. For the craftsmanship the price was very good. I think this is a fun way to spend some time and money for something different. I just love something different.…
