Artist Gary Max Collins

Gary Max Collins received the Governor’s Award for Utah Artist of 2008. Gary has made a living solely from his art for more than 45 years as one of Utah’s finest landscape artists. His talent and passion for painting and his wide variety of styles in oils and watercolors gives Gary a large and diverse following. He was born in 1936 and has drawn and painted since early childhood. His nurturing family fostered his artistic talent and his innate appreciation of art. At a young age, he studied the art of the early Utah painters and practiced duplicating works of the masters such as Van Gogh and Matisse. His early interest in art, sparked by teachers and his grandfather, a poet and naturalist, eventually led Gary to sample a variety of related professions while painting: interior and graphic design, architecture and illustration. Selling his first works at the age of 20, Gary ultimately realized his dream to paint full-time in 1969. A press release from a Los Angeles gallery said of Gary Collins, “Many artists have the ability to depict a landscape. Few have the talent to show a viewer what the place feels like.”
