William Henry Price grew up exploring the creeks and fields near Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. He received an MFA degree from Mason Gross School of Art at Rutgers, and a BFA from Boston University. He taught painting and design at Seton Hall University for seven years before becoming co-director of the Cross-Cultural Institute in New York, a non-profit dedicated to inter-cultural cooperation and exchange. More recently he has taught Contemporary Art History and Drawing at Western Carolina University.
William’s paintings, often intricately detailed, arise from his lifelong exploration of nature and of sacred traditions. He has exhibited widely from New York to the Carolinas. His writings and lectures on the arts of many cultures are narrated with the practicality and purpose of a working contemporary artist, and they also provide a set of poetic annotations to his own artistic iconography.
William is the author of the upcoming book, “PAINTING THE INVISIBLE; Becoming an Indigenous Artist in a Post Modern Land.”
