Julia Seabrook Gallery brings Chip Haggerty – a brutish New England painter and reluctant outsider – in from the cold with his first ever New York City solo exhibition. The show opens April 20, 5-9 PM, at Julia Seabrook Gallery, 660 Franklin Ave., Crown Heights, Brooklyn. It runs through May 28.
Chip Haggerty, an emerging self-taught, outsider artist, has been on a slow yet steady pace toward artistic realization since expanding his creative practice time and space allowed. Writing, painting and spoken word have all been part of Haggerty's artistic portfolio in recent years. Whether writing poetry, engaging with radio audiences or painting in his iconoclastic style, Haggerty consistently brings his humor, depth and passion to the task. Pulling from childhood experiences, parenting, work life, random social gatherings, literature and everyday encounters, Haggerty takes slices of the past and snapshots of the present and bakes them into foundation of each piece of work.
