Carolina Galleries in Charleston, SC, Features Works by Johnson Hagood

Johnson Hagood, artist and owner of Carolina Galleries in Charleston, SC, will unveil his show Preview, a sneak peek at work that is being created for his 2011 show at the Greenville County Museum of Art in Greenville, SC. The exhibit will be on view from Oct. 1 - 30, 2010.

Hagood, a resident of Charleston since childhood, studied Studio Art at the College of Charleston under renowned artists like Michael Tyzack, John Michel, William Halsey, and Corrie McCallum. The vanishing landscapes of the South, such as barrier islands, sunsets or the ever-evolving urban settings of downtown Charleston inspire this talented artist. As a dealer, Hagood specializes in American Southern artwork, particularly work of the Charleston Renaissance (1915-1940) artists like Alice Ravenel Huger Smith, Alfred Heber Hutty, Anna Heyward Taylor and Elizabeth O'Neill Verner.

Hagood's recent exploration of nocturnal cityscapes drew the attention of Greenville County Museum of Art director Tom Styron. His show is scheduled for 2011; exact dates are still to be determined. The work will explore the decaying nooks and crannies of Greenville's urban landscape.

Carolina Galleries is a member of the Charleston Fine Art Dealers' Association. Hagood is the current President of CFADA.
