Richard Hagerty Invitational Exhibit: Celebration 

An exhibition of paintings by the official poster artist of Piccolo Spoleto 2008

What is it? An exhibition of paintings by the official poster artist of Piccolo Spoleto 2008.

Why see it? When Hagerty's not at his easel, he's got a scalpel in hand as a surgeon at Duke University. That hand-eye coordination comes in handy — his flowing, whimsical piece Celebration is a perfect fit for Piccolo. Featuring a host of colorful circus and artisan-type characters in front of a backdrop of St. Michael's, St. Philip's, and the Ravenel Bridge, the piece is both fanciful and distinct. Hagerty compares his paintings to dreams, and each one is a journey into a fantastic otherworld.

Who should go? Art snobs and children alike will enjoy the intricate, mystical worlds of Hagerty's paintings.

PICCOLO SPOLETO • Free • On view through June 15, Mon.-Sat., 10 a.m.-5 p.m. • Corrigan Gallery, 62 Queen St. • (888) 374-2656
