Hagerty studied in Sydney before moving to Canberra to study at the (then) Canberra School of Art. Since graduating in 1988 she has held numerous solo exhibitions and participated in many group shows, including most recently in the National Gallery of Australia’s Know my Name. Her many awards include the Conrad Jupiter’s Art Prize (2005), the John McCaughey Memorial Prize (2004), the Capo Fellowship (2019), and the Ginninderry Drawing Prize (2022). Her work is represented in many major collections including those of the National Gallery of Australia, the National Gallery of Victoria, the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, the Canberra Museum and Gallery and Art Bank.” Peter Haynes.
