10. “Catherine Haggarty: An Echo’s Glyph” at Massey Klein Gallery, New York

Make sure to check out the solo show of ethereal paintings by Brooklyn-based artist Catherine Haggarty at Massey Klein Gallery, opening this Friday. This new body of works consists of air brush, oil stick, and fluid acrylic paintings, inspired by Haggarty’s 2019 trip to France where she visited early cave paintings. According to the gallery’s statement, “the artist’s forms reference animal patterns, imprints, and ancient symbols that create a fictional space for viewers to navigate.” These works evoke in the viewer a feeling of visiting these cave paintings themselves, as if viewing remnants of animal and bird footprints and other remains of life lived a long time ago.


Location: Massey Klein Gallery, 124 Forsyth Street, New York
Time: Opening Reception, Sunday, December 20, 1 p.m.–6 p.m.; viewable by appointment
