A visit with Chuck Connelly in his home studio to talk about painting with Jessica Beck, assistant curator of The Andy Warhol Museum.
As a prodigious painter with a passion for his craft, Connelly has amassed a vast body of work dating from the late 1970’s to the present day. His subjects have varied widely from religious imagery to cosmic visions, landscapes, portraits, domestic interiors, and Victorian homes from his neighborhood in East Oak Lane, Philadelphia. In spite of such a varied career, Connelly’s penchant for the surreal and fantastic have remained constant.
Exhibition opens September 27 and continues through January 4, 2015. For more information and a complete list of events visit pittsburghbiennial.org
