About The Artist
Bret Price is a Southern California sculptor who has worked in both ceramics and steel for the last four decades. He attended Pomona College and the Otis Art Institute during the 1960s, where he studied under leading figures of the California Clay Art Movement. In 1975, he received his MFA from Cal Arts and had his first solo exhibition at the Craft and Folk Art Museum in Los Angeles. In 1979, due to the size limitations of the ceramic kiln and his desire to work monumentally, Price started working with metal, creating his first sculptures in steel. Over the years he has distinguished himself in this medium, creating flowing, sensual, organic forms that evoke the malleability of clay. Critics have remarked upon the playfulness, movement and exquisite balance of his work. Price's sculptures have been featured in museum shows across the country and can be found in the permanent collections of the Laguna Beach Museum of Art, CA; the Long Beach Museum of Art, CA; the Orange County Museum of Art, CA; the Dayton Art Institute, OH; and the Smithsonian American Art Museum, DC; among others. His work can also be found in numerous corporate collections, including that of PepsiCo, NY; Walt Disney Productions, CA; Sea World, CA; and Toyota Corp, IL.
