The University at Buffalo's Anderson Gallery, a gem of a space tucked into the residential neighborhood near the university's south campus, recently announced its acquisition of several hundred new works for its already significant collection of modern and contemporary art.
The largest chunk of the Anderson's recent acquisitions comes from a donation of more than 400 pieces by Charles Clough, one of the founders of Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center in the mid-'70s and a painter who has been attracting increased attention lately. These were donated by Herbert and Dorothy Vogel, the famed art collectors who have been distributing the collection to musuems around the country (including the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and the Castellani Art Museum) in massive numbers over the past several years.
The Anderson Gallery also announced it has acquired a bust of the art critic Donald Kuspit by the Dutch artist Karl Appel, pictured below:
Both works are now on view in the gallery. The gallery has also recently acquired a series of Tibetan Thankga paintings from the collection of Richard V. and Susan Lee as well as works by Arnold Mesches, Jill Clement, Harvey Breverman and the Ant Farm art collective.
