r Jerry Gardner in Springville has a unique way to melt away the winter blues. He lives at 300 South and Canyon Road in a cozy little house tucked back in the trees. At this time of year, the house may be even harder to see; if conditions are right, your view is interrupted by bright, colorful snow sculptures out near the road that are created by Gardner.rDuring our interview, a carload of people stopped to snap a quick picture of one of his latest snow creations, a King Kong sized-head peering from under a new blanket of white snow. Next to that is a rendition of Uncle Sam.

Gardner makes these amazing and very temporary works of art, he said, to cheer people up who may suffer from seasonal depression or just get a little down by the grey months of winter. Besides snow sculpting, he also does oil painting, sculpts found objects, paints murals and is an air brush artist. Some of his works can be seen at the new Strap Tank Brewing Co., La Casita restaurant, Sidecar Café and Legends Motorcycles in Springville.rHe graduated from Provo High School as a Sterling Scholar, studied art at Brigham Young University and then graduated from Utah Valley University in collision repair. He is now self-employed and currently pursuing one his many passions: restoring antique show cars.rGardner has been making snow sculptures for about 30 years. This year, he has had plenty of material to work with. Drive by to see Gardner’s latest creation.
