This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Known for a wide array of sculpture subjects, Gary Price creates children, wildlife, Native Americans, and bas reliefs of floral subjects.  He is best known for images of young people in the celebration of life.  The work ranges in size from a foot high to outdoor monumental and reflects his Mormon Church heritage, not in a literal doctrinal sense, but in an overall positive expression of respect and love for life.  His goal is to uplift the human spirit through sculpture.

He attended the University of Utah in Salt Lake City and studied with Alvin Gittins. In 2002, he received the Governor's Mansion Artist Award for visual art from Utah Governor Michael Leavitt.

Biography from Altermann Galleries and Auctioneers, V:
Gary Lee Price believes that sculpture is more than art; it is capturing events in life and then expressing those events through the mind and hands of the sculptor. Price, therefore, has a purpose when he creates a piece of sculpture, and that is to lift up those that experience his art. As he says, “I don’t want to be known as a sculptor of one theme or subject. I do want to be recognized, as a sculptor who, regardless of the subject or object, can create a piece that is uplifting and has lasting merit.”

“For me, sculpture is a never-ending challenge of design, composition, form and texture. Subject matter is absolutely infinite. Whether it is a bird in flight, little kids swinging each other around or massive sandstone shapes in Southern Utah, all offer unlimited challenges.”

Known for a wide array of sculpture subjects, Price creates children, wildlife, Native Americans, and bas-reliefs of floral subjects. However, he is best known for images of young people in the celebration of life, as he is most comfortable sculpting the human figure, having studied under Alvin Gittins while earning his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Utah. For the past several years, he has found joy in the “childhood days” of his five boys and has converted this joy into several pieces revolving around the fun and joys of youth. Gary, his wife Lanea, and their five sons live at the base of the Wasatch Mountains on ten fun-filled acres in Springville, Utah.

Gary believes in “always remaining a student” and finds travel and research an important part of his life. His travels have taken him across Europe and Egypt, Israel and Germany, as well as the jungles and ruins of Mexico and Guatemala. Gary has continued his art education not only through his travels, but also by taking classes from artists such as Richard McDonald and Bruno Luccasi. In addition to being a student, Price has taught five-day workshops in 1999, 2001 and 2003 for the Loveland Academy of Fine Art in Loveland, Colorado.

In 1991, Price was elected a member of the National Sculpture Society, and in 2002 he received the Governor's Mansion Artist Award for visual art from Utah Governor Michael Leavitt. His works are included in public and private collections throughout the world, including the Church of Latter Day Saints Museum of Church History and Art, the Springville Museum of Art, the Culver Military Academy in Culver, Indiana, the American Schools in Surry, England, the Westside Preparatory School in Chicago, Illinois, and the Rich De Voss Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Biography from Morris & Whiteside Galleries:
Gary Price has been sculpting professionally for over 25 years.  Price credits his artistic success to his mother, who encouraged him to express himself through his artwork at an early age.

Currently living in Utah, Price spent many years traveling and searching for inspiration. Living for two years in Germany, and visiting such exotic locations as Israel, Mexico, Guatemala, and Egypt, Price also visited eleven other European countries in the span of only three months.

Price's sculptures can be found at the Hong Kong Central Library; the American Community Schools in Surrey, England; the Springville Museum of Art; Rich De Voss Women's and Children's Hospital of Grand Rapids, Michigan; Birmingham Botanical Gardens; Scottish Rite Children's Hospital of Dallas, Texas; Bluegrass Airport of Lexington, Kentucky; and the Indianapolis Children's Museum.

Price is a member of the National Sculpture Society and is the receipient of the Governor's Mansion Artist Award from Governor Michael Leavitt of Utah.
