Exquisite Corpse

Head to Toe & End to End

September 4th - October 13th, 2015

Featuring printmakers and works on paper, visual artists and poets will produce works based on the Surrealist concept know as The Exquisite Corpse – a “blind collaboration” where components of what will become a larger work are produced separately by participants, without being able to see what others have produced, before being displayed together. Renowned printmakers from Door County and around the state will produce sections of the human body to make “corpses” which will be available by silent auction to benefit the organization. There are several collaborative and interactive components to this exhibit: the Head-To-Toe works are the full figures produced through a blind collaboration of 28 regional printmakers, including five artists from Door County; the End-To-End pieces line the walls with a continuous flow from one image to the next, produced by 25 Door County artists; and text is displayed of 19 Door County poets; each wrote the next line of the poem based only on the previous one provided.

Special Thanks:

UWGB Printmaking Department Artists Guild, LLC.

Learn about the artists who live and work on the peninsula in a uniquely Door County setting! Patrons can enjoy exhibits of local and regional artists, see the nationally recognized Community Mosaic Project, take in spectacular sunset views or enjoy meeting local plein air painters in and around the gallery during the Door County Plein Air Festival.

The gallery is situated directly on the shore of Eagle Harbor and has been a pillar of the Door County art community since the mid-1900s, providing visibility in a non-commercial venue to new and established artists who may or may not have outside gallery representation. Over the years, the organization has grown from a small, volunteer-run facility to a multifaceted non-profit organization that draws more than 14,500 visitors annually, serves over 750 artists and youth each year and manages 75 volunteers.


We encourage you to make note of our sponsors so you can patronize these businesses in return for their generous support of our organization; please be sure to make mention that you heard about them at the Hardy.
