Raffle Premise 

For many people, the name "Hardy Gallery" conjures up images of the historic graffiti-covered warehouse situated on the shores of Ephraim's picturesque Eagle Harbor; for others, the name represents years of memories from visiting different exhibitions presented in the unique art gallery, while some are reminded of the warehouse's history. For all of these reasons, it is easy to see why The Hardy holds so much meaning for art collectors, Ephraim residents and visitors alike.

The concept for this fundraising raffle was conceived by the Hardy Gallery Board of Directors in the fall of 2012 with the above in mind. The goal remains to create interest in a product that directly taps into the emotional connection that exists between our place and our audience. Annually, the Hardy will commission a painting that exemplifies quality at the highest level - focused on our recognizable icon, the warehouse - in partnership with a well-recognized and respected Door County artist and his or her representing gallery. Interpretation is entirely up to the selected artist.

The raffle was structured to benefit all parties involved; the selected artist, who is commissioned and paid for the creation of the painting, the representing gallery who will handle the sale and the donor who will purchase the painting and donate to the Hardy. The funds raised go towards sustaining our programming, including our seasonal exhibit schedule, Community Mosaic Project and our signature winter high school youth art education program, Exposure to Creativity (ETC). 

Thank you to Margaret Lockwood and Stephen and Jessica Sauter for their continued support of the Francis Hardy Center for the Arts, Inc. (The Hardy Gallery) - A 501 (c)(3) Non-Profit Organization.

Timeframe: Ticket sales will take place throughout the entire summer season, commencing in May to coincide with the opening of the Annual Juried Exhibit and run through the Hardy's closing in mid-October.

Ticket Sales: With our audience in mind, ticket prices have been set at $5 each or 5 for $20. The main ticket venue will be the Hardy Gallery with additional sales through the board of directors, and volunteers of the organization.



Margaret Lockwood 

Margaret grew up in the northwestern suburbs of Chicago then went to Miami (of Ohio) University. Graduating with a degree in social work she worked with families and children in need before getting married and moving to St. Louis to raise her family. Artistically she began as a weaver and received her Masters of Fine Art in painting from Fontbonne University. Painting became her medium of expression and led her to founding Woodwalk Gallery in Door County in 1994. All her paintings begin in a real time and place but then she works and reworks the images with many layers until the paintings can be any time and any place. She is a recipient of the Door County Master Artist award, the Milwaukee Women’s Professional Dimensions Sacagewea Award, the Wisconsin Arts Association Triennial show in Madison and other awards and exhibits throughout the Midwest. Margaret’s work can be seen at the Margaret Lockwood Gallery in the creative district in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.
