About the artist:
American sculptor Gary Price received his B.F.A in painting and drawing from the University of Utah in 1981 under noted professor and painter Alvin Gittins. In 1991 he was selected as a member of the National Sculpture Society, and in 2001 received the “Governor’s Mansion Artist Award” from Governor Michael Leavitt of Utah for his outstanding support of the arts. Price cites world travel as a major source of inspiration for his career, and consequently has spent two years in Germany, six months in Israel, one month in Mexico and Guatemala, and one month in Egypt.
