Biography from Trailside Galleries:
Gary Kapp was born in Ogden, Utah in 1942. When he was four, his father bought a ranch in Oregon, where he was raised until he went to college. He graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in art in 1966. He continued graduate work in the evenings for awhile and spent one summer studying with Kenneth Riley.

About this time he went to work for a motion picture studio, where he spent nearly ten years illustrating film strips, visualizing movies, and painting backdrops. Because his interest in fine art was so intense, he painted every spare moment after work and on weekends, until 1976 when he left commercial work and began to paint full time.
Having spent his formative years on a ranch, it soon became evident that his favorite subjects were Western.

His work is widely shown in major galleries in Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, Wyoming, Colorado, and Utah. He is a member of the Northwest Rendezvous Group, winning the Swan Graphics Award in 1982 and the People’s Choice Award in 1999. Several of his paintings have been reproduced in limited editions by major print companies such as New York Graphics, Millpond Press, Swan Graphics, Texas Art Press, and 3-M Company.

He has also been featured in "Art West Magazine" and "Art of the West". His work is in such major collections as Midland Bank, Arizona Bank, Sears Tower, Brigham Young University, and the collections of Jon Huntsman, Jack Byrne, Steve Young, and Alan Ashton.

Gary, his wife, Diane, and their family live in Provo, Utah, among some of the most beautiful mountain scenery in the world, and where there is an abundance of landscape and Indian subjects.
