This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Delmar Pettigrew (1937-)

Award-winning sculptor, Delmar Pettigrew’s works can be found in collections as far away as Kuwait, and as close as municipalities in Wyoming.  His work is represented by galleries in: Cheyenne in Wyoming; Beaver Creek, Denver, San Luis, and Loveland in Colorado; Santa Fe, New Mexico; and Harbor Springs, Michigan.  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 31 years, acclaimed sculptor Martha Pettigrew, for her insightful critiques.  Two-lifesize-wildlife  bronzes were commissioned by The Museum of the Great Plains, a museum associated with the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, Nebraska.

Recently, his work was accepted in the Art of the Animal Kingdom X and Xlll,  held each year at the Bennington Center for the Arts, Bennington, Vermont; Kentucky Wildlife Exhibiton, Henderson, Kentucky; Audubon Wildlife Exhibition, Museum of Nebraka Art, Kearney, Nebraska; and a 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.”

Pettigrew also breeds and races thoroughbred horses, and spends a great deal of time in Mexico with his wife, honing their Spanish, and considers himself fluent.
