The Hardy Gallery has been a pillar of the Door County art community since the mid-1900s, providing visibility to new and established artists with exhibits that excite and educate! We look forward to a much anticipated kick-off celebration on Saturday, May 25th and we are excited to share with you the exhibit lineup for our 57th season. We look forward to seeing you at the gallery!
By Fire: A Contemporary Ceramic Exhibition
August 30 - October 13
Opening Reception: Friday, August 30th, 5:30pm - 7pm
This exhibit explores the materiality of ceramics by focusing on non-utilitarian, sculptural work, featuring a diverse set of contemporary artists who push form to the threshold. Exhibiting artists include: Christopher L Davis-Benavides (Milwaukee), Rebecca Carlton (Door County), Stephanie Evans (Door County), Minkyu Lee (Green Bay), and Tony Staroska (Door County).
These five artists approach their work with a strong sense of narrative, using the material to create statements about the world, society and our environment. What emerges is a rich display of ceramic sculpture that shows off their control over this fragile medium.
The gallery will be closed for exhibit installation during the following dates: May 23 - May 25; June 7 - June 13; July 15 - July 18; August 26 -August 29.
Our gallery closes for the season on October 13th.
