Ron Nagle Art

American, b. 1939

Ron Nagle is an American sculptor, musician and songwriter. Nagle is best known for his small-scale sculptures incorporating technically skilled and highly expressive shapes, textures and colors. His sculptures are often associated with the California Clay Movement or American Clay Revolution, a school of ceramic art that emerged in California in the 1950s, which sought to elevate ceramics from craft to fine art. His first solo exhibition was in 1968 at Dilexi Gallery in San Francisco. Since then, his work has been exhibited extensively, including solo exhibitions at the Saint Louis Art Museum, Carnegie Museum of Art, San Diego Museum of Art and Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. 30 of Nagle’s ceramics were included in the exhibition “The Encyclopedic Palace,” curated by Massimiliano Gioni for the 55th Venice Biennale.
