Join beloved ceramicist Wesley Anderegg for an artist talk on his latest body of work, Critters, featuring the artist's four-legged favorites from his childhood in Arizona.
Wesley Anderegg’s peculiar ceramic figures have been delighting viewers for over three decades in Santa Fe. Collectors and critics familiar with Anderegg’s distinct sense of humor have come to rely on his signature toothy grins, unsettlingly realistic glass eyes, and idiosyncratic brand of whimsy and fun. Awash in the colors of a typical Arizona landscape, his earthenware characters represent what the artist enjoys best, outside of raising pygmy goats: poking fun and people-watching.
Anderegg’s work is represented in numerous public collections, including the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Renwick Gallery, Washington, DC; Montgomery Museum of Art, Montgomery, AL; Fredrick R. Wiesman Museum, Minneapolis, MN; Arizona State University Art Museum, Tempe, AZ; and, most recently, the New Mexico Museum of Art, Santa Fe, NM. When he’s not busy with contemporary craft, Anderegg makes his own pinot noir.
