Li-hsien Chung Price has emerged as a prize-winning artist in the Delaware and Lehigh Valleys. Her growing reputation in the arts attests to her passion and total commitment in developing her statement for strong representational art, from quick notations to completed studio expressions.

Among the numerous juried shows displaying her work, the most recent accomplishments include receiving the Award for Excellence in Realism at the 2011 Oil Painters of America's National Juried Show, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho; acceptance into the 2010 Oil Painters of America National Juried Show, Scottsdale, Arizona; first place in the Bethlehem Palette Club's Fall Juried Shows at Allentown Museum, 2008 through 2012; acceptance at Ellarslie Mansion and Salon shows 2008-2011; inclusion in the Ellarslie Calendars 2008-2011; first place in painting, Artsbridge, 2008; acceptance in Lehigh Art Alliance juried shows 2009 through 2011; acceptance at Phillips Mill juried show 2011 and 2012; and invitational participation in Sabine Rose Galley's Plein Aire Competitions.

She is a member of Oil Painters of America, Portrait Society of America, Lehigh Art Alliance, Bethlehem Palette Club, and Artsbridge.

Li-hsien Chung Price's commitment to and achievement in the arts spans decades. She taught art in the public schools for over 35 years, earning the status of the Governor's Award for "Teacher of the Year" in 1987, and in 2002 winning a Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation fellowship for art teachers who were also productive artists.

From a journey into the arts which began in mentorship with the late Arthur Clement Aalholm, to more recent studying with Lois Griffel, Peggy Rose, John Ennis, James Himsworth III, and Kenn Backhaus, Li-hsien Chung Price now divides her time between her Lambertville studio in the Delaware Valley, and Bethlehem studio, Lehigh Valley.

Her works hang in private and public collections, and her recent pieces may be viewed on her website: www.lihsien.com.

She invites both public and private commissions.
