About Larry Barth

Larry Barth has combined dual interests in birds and art throughout his life. While pursuing graphic
design and illustration at Carnegie Mellon University, his interest in carving and sculpture took over. He
developed his own curriculum in order to concentrate on his chosen direction and graduated in 1979
with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Design.

Larry has won the Ward Foundation’s highest honor, the title of Best in World, an unprecedented seventeen times. In 1991 he received the Leigh Yawkey Woodson’s Master Wildlife Artist medallion. Larry continues to work in two and three dimensions and in a variety of mediums including wood, metal, clay and stone. He is the author of Birds, Art & Design in which he uses his own work to explore the thought process involved in developing an idea or concept into a piece of sculpture.

He and his wife, Linda, live beside a mountain trout stream near Stahlstown, Pennsylvania.

What People Are Saying

Although I am not a big fan of Western art, I thoroughly enjoyed the museum. The sculpture was stunning, and the views from the museum were beautiful. I learned so much about American artists, and the history of the difficulty in having wildlife paintings accepted by artists' organizations was fascinating. A lovely visit.
