Richard Hagerty is a surrealist artist who for more than 40 years has painted fantastic, visionary worlds. Join us to celebrate his new book, American Surrealist.
Often based on dreams, always fueled by intense curiosity, Hagerty’s paintings explore manifold realms, including mythology, astronomy, anatomy, botany, history, philosophy, world religions, quantum physics and cosmology.
Widely collected and exhibited, this prolific, self-taught, iconoclastic artist is as well a plastic surgeon by training, ardent conservationist, outdoorsman, frequent overseas medical volunteer, amateur musician, and perpetual student. Hagerty lives and works not far from where he grew up in downtown historic Charleston, South Carolina. He’s an outlier, an original, a Renaissance man for our times.
