Richard Hagerty is a surrealist artist who for over 40 years has painted fantastic, visionary worlds. Often based on his dreams and fueled by intense curiosity, Hagerty's paintings explore manifold realms, including mythology, astronomy, anatomy, botany, history, philosophy and world religions. Widely collected, exhibited in numerous solo/group shows, this self-taught, prolific artist is perhaps best known for his popular Piccolo Spoleto Festival posters. A plastic surgeon by training, ardent conservationist and outdoorsman, frequent overseas medical volunteer, amateur musician and perpetual student, Hagerty lives and works in Charleston, South Carolina. He's an outlier, an original, a Renaissance man for our time.
See his work in the upcoming exhibition, American Surrealist at the City Gallery at Waterfront Park. Opening Reception on November 19, 2015 from 5-7 p.m. The exhibit will be open from November 20, 2015 - January 10, 2016.
AMERICAN SURREALIST, 208 pages with 275 illustrations, is available from Evening Post Books.
