"I have realized, and have experienced, that knowledge is power. The more knowledge we obtain, the more choices we are free to make and the more empowered we become. So often we limit ourselves because of shortened or narrow perspectives. Books open to us larger and more complete perspectives and ultimately, bigger and more brilliant pictures. Youth at its best: studying, pondering, learning, growing, dreaming – trying to understand today while coming up with the solutions for tomorrow. These readers elevate to new heights with their continual acquisition of knowledge. The children represent diligent study. The stacks of books represent the higher levels of learning and understanding that come to us through knowledge. I offer to you, ‘New Heights of Knowledge: Faraway Places’. Read!" Gary Lee Price

"New Heights of Knowledge - Faraway Places" features a young girl sitting atop a tall stack of oversized books. She is engaged in reading, with her right leg crossed over her left. The books beneath her are sculpted with visible covers and spines. The sculpture has a bronze finish, adding to the timeless quality. This artwork invokes themes of knowledge, learning, and the joy of immersing oneself in literature.
