“Wesley Anderegg sculpts clay figures that are both frightening and humorous, based on a lifetime of watching and listening to people. His earthenware pieces and figural groups suggest an imaginary narrative that often conveys his social and political concerns. His art comments on issues such as pollution, the degradation of the environment, and the role of government in our everyday lives.”

– Smithsonian American Art Museum
