Award-winning sculptor/painter, Delmar Pettigrew’s works can be found in collections as far away as Kuwait, and as close as municipalities in Wyoming. Pettigrew has studied with numerous nationally known wildlife artists such as, Walter Matia, Chapel, and Floyd Tennyson Dewitt. Painting workshops include, Peggy Kroll Roberts, Kim English, Michelle Torrez, Dan Mieduch, Dan Robinson, and Ken Backhaus. He also credits his wife of 30 years, acclaimed sculptor Martha Pettigrew, for her insightful critiques.
Recently, his work was accepted in the prestigious, Art of the Animal Kingdom X, held
each year at the Bennington Center for the Arts, Bennington, Vermont; Kentucky Wildlife Exhibition, Henderson, Kentucky; Audubon Wildlife Exhibition, Museum of Nebraska Art, Kearney, Nebraska; and two-person residency at the Plains Museum, Center for the Studies of the Great Plains in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Pettigrew describes his work as “rendered impressionistically.” His bronzes, mostly wildlife, equine, and recently sporting dogs, are created without non-essential detail. “I don’t want to insult the intelligence of my viewers by painstakingly drawing every hair.”
