Gary Casteel
Historical Sculptor

Nationally recognized sculptor Gary Casteel has always been fascinated with history. In the fourth grade, after seeing a picture of Michelangelo's David, Gary knew that sculpting was the profession for him. Before beginning his illustrious career, he apprenticed with professional sculptors from the US and Europe, most notably the Pucci's, a celebrated family of marble carvers from Florence, Italy. With a keen sense of military history, and a rare talent for producing pieces in the Renaissance flavor, many of Mr. Casteel's works have been chosen for inclusion in the collections of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Library and the National Park Service. Best known for his equestrian monument honoring General James Longstreet at Gettysburg National Military Park, he continues to produce fine art bronze figures and memorials, the latest being the Kentucky State Memorial, featuring the figures of Presidents Davis and Lincoln, for the Vicksburg National Military Park. Mr. Casteel continues to receive noted commissions, and works with five different national battlefield parks in creating and marketing replicas of the monuments on the battlefields, in an effort to raise funds for preservation of our nation's treasures, the veterans' monuments. As a sculptor and historian, with a lifelong romance of art and dedication to history, Mr. Casteel feels he should and can do nothing less.
