About The Artist

Gary Lee Price

Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “The spirit of man is what makes him unique above all of God’s creations”.  Gary Lee Price bronzes come as close to ‘capturing’ this spirit as is humanly possible.  Sculpture with meaning. Sculpture to “lift the human spirit”. Sculpture to inspire. This is the essence of Gary’s work.  This is his life’s journey, to lift and to inspire!  

One of the largest libraries in the world, the Hong Kong Central Library, 12 stories high, 300,000 square feet, features 12 of Gary Lee Price’s life-size bronze sculptures.  This impressive display includes bronzes of young readers, happy children releasing doves, others playing with shells in water, some holding beautiful flowers or soaring through the air as though weightless.  Additionally, two 22” round frogs, “Puffed Up Princes”, are sentinels at the entrance of the children’s library.

The 11-foot “Celebration!” featuring joyous children soaring around a globe celebrating life, was first unveiled in Surrey, England at the American Community Schools with the most recent being dedicated in Decatur, Georgia by former First Lady Rosalyn Carter.  A 22-foot version of the same sculpture is located at the entrance of the 10 story corporate headquarters for NuSkin International in Provo, Utah.

Literally thousands of Gary Lee Price sculptures are in public and private collections throughout the world. Uplifting others, helping others, and joining hands with others in brotherhood and sisterhood are essential parts of the life and work of Gary Lee Price. 

Gary has been commissioned to create the 305-foot Statue of Responsibility, Viktor Frankl’s vision from his book “Mans Search for Meaning”.  The Monument will be the bookend to the Statue of Liberty.  This Monument and Movement is currently under way in Utah! The organization is in the process of procuring land now. 

“My passion for art and my belief that art empowers and lifts the human spirit has only grown stronger throughout my life.  I have been blessed with many generous and selfless mentors, and my dream is to pass those gifts on to others”.  To this end Gary often teaches workshops to individuals, groups, and corporations on the aspects of creation and manifestation. 

Gary, a 1981 Fine Arts graduate of the University of Utah, in 1991 was elected a member of the National Sculpture Society. He has since been elected by his peers as a Fellow of this prestigious organization. Gary has his own foundry, Alchemy Arts, in Springville, Utah.

In 2022 Gary released his memoirs, “Divine Turbulence”.  The book tells Gary’s harrowing childhood experience of witnessing the murder suicide of his mom and stepdad in Germany at the tender age of 6.  That is just the beginning of the story…. “Divine Turbulence” became a #1 International best seller overnight. Profits from the sales go to The Statue of Responsibility Foundation. (501c3) 

The sculptures of Gary Lee Price are displayed with a select group of 15 galleries throughout the United States.  “I hope I can assist the world in visualizing a place where fences and boundaries, both real and imagined, are nonexistent.  A place where bias and prejudice are long forgotten.  And finally, a place where acts of kindness, mutual respect and love are everyday happenings”.

Gary resides in both Springville, Utah and Buckeye, Arizona with his beautiful wife, Leesa Clark Price.  Together they have 9 children and 20 very energetic grandchildren.
