Museum purchase; 2004.503

Charles Allmond, a life-long resident of Wilmington, Delaware, is best known as a uniquely successful abstract artist in the competitive field of highly naturalistic wildlife art. Sculpting since 1982, Allmond’s work is carved directly from stone and wood with additional series cast in bronze. With degrees in agronomy and law, this self-taught artist was encouraged to sculpt by the many artists and collectors of the Wilmington art scene. As the former President of The Society of Animal Artists, Allmond’s work has been exhibited in venues across America, Canada and Sweden and can be found in the collections of the University of Delaware, Hiram Blauvelt Art Museum, the Leigh Yawley Woodson Art Museum, St. Hubert’s Giralda Museum of Animal Art.
