Dave grew up in Cody, Wyoming and is known for realistic bronze Native American figural sculpture. In the 1970s McGary earned a grant to study bronze making with western sculptor Harry Jackson (American, 1924-2011) in Italy, with emphasis on casting techniques and Renaissance marble carving. After gaining further foundry experience working in New Mexico for several years, Dave became highly interested in Native American culture through his friendship with Sioux Indian families in South Dakota. Dave has won numerous awards for his works, including the Honorary Lifetime Alumni Award from Eastern New Mexico University. He has completed several large scale public bronze monuments. In 1995, Dave's monumental 225 foot long bronze equine sculpture, "Free Spirits at Noisy Water," was installed at Hubbard Museum of the American West in Ruidoso Downs, New Mexico.
