Twenty-five years ago, while living in Central and South America, Brad Price began his career as a gallery painter. His works are currently represented by galleries in Santa Fe, NM, Cimarron, NM, and in Oklahoma where he resides. During the Oklahoma Bi-centennial his works were on display in the Oklahoma State Capital building and he is widely collected.
The bold brushstrokes and colors in expressionist works by Brad Price are inspired by the Southwest landscape and its rugged beauty. His work is a rebirth of the sense of style of early Taos painters and the Postimpressionists. His works in oil are emotive and colorful with strong directional lines and he invites the viewer to enter and view the world that he has seen and experienced.
PAS gallery exhibitions are made possible in part by grants from the Norman Arts Council, Oklahoma Arts Council, National Endowment for the Arts and patron donations.
