Collection: Wiggins, Kim

Kim Wiggins is a modernist painter from New Mexico whose distinct style and modern vision have made him one of the most recognizable artists in America today. Although primarily self-taught, he was mentored early on by the iconic artists Alexandre Hogue and Henriette Wyeth. He was discovered in 1972 by an art dealer from Scottsdale, and by 1983 he was the youngest member of the Society of American Impressionists, exhibiting alongside George Carlson, Everett Raymond Kinstler, and Sandy Scott.

Wiggins has won numerous awards and accolades, including the 2022 Briscoe Western Art Museum Purchase Award, the 2020 Gold Medal for Best Narrative at the Autry Museum, the 2018 Briscoe Western Art Museum’s William B. Travis Award for Patron’s Choice, and the 2014 New Mexico Historical Society’s Heritage Award. A collection of ten of Wiggins’s works documenting the history of California is housed at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Wiggins was recently honored by the NAACP with an extensive commission to document various aspects of Black history, and these four major works were unveiled on June 17, 2023, at the Dayton Art Institute. The artist is working on a large-scale solo show with Legacy Gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona, slated for November 2024.
