About Catherine Haggarty

Brooklyn-based artist Catherine Haggarty creates paintings and drawings that pay attention to domestic objects, spaces, and habits through pictural strategies that employ multiple perspectives. Personal objects and things like animals, sneakers, beds, floors, and drawings, appear in her work, linking her life to pictures. With complex compositions and wistful color pallets, these works consider the very function of images in our personal and public lives including how we perceive our environment, process images, and record information. 

Haggarty’s paintings and curatorial work have been reviewed by and featured in Bomb Magazine, Artnet, Hyperallergic, Art Forum, Two Coats of Paint, Brooklyn Magazine, The New York Times, Art Maaze Magazine, Art Spiel, Pep Talks for Artists, Sound and Vision Podcast and The Observer. 

Solo & Two Person exhibitions include Untitled Miami, Lorin Gallery, LA, Geary Contemporary (NYC), Massey Klein Gallery (NYC), This Friday Next Friday (Brooklyn), Bloomsburg University (PA), and Look and Listen in Marseille France. Select group exhibitions include The PIT (LA), Badr El Jundi (Madrid, Spain), Mindy Solomon (Miami, FL), Andrew Rafcaz (Chicago, IL), Hesse Flatow (NYC), Mrs (Maspeth, NY) and McBride Contemporary in Montreal, Canada. 

Haggarty earned her M.F.A from Mason Gross, Rutgers University in 2011. She is the Founder, Owner, and Executive Director of The Canopy Program which is a one-year mentorship program within the NYC Crit Club (which Haggarty co-founded with artist Hilary Doyle in 2017). 

In the Spring of 2024, Catherine will be the Teiger Mentor for the Arts at Cornell AAP MFA and is currently also a Visiting Associate Professor at Pratt Institute.  Additional teaching experience includes Rutgers BFA, Hofstra University, The School of Visual Arts & The Fashion Institute of New York.
