The Hardy Gallery

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 25 February 2021 in Business & Industry and Portfolio.

The Hardy 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.

The Dock quickly became the business and social center of the community, with the Anderson Warehouse (the Hardy's home) being built around the same time. The Dock and Warehouse hold a lot of meaning for Ephraim residents and visitors alike, not to mention the decades of boaters who would paint their respective vessel's name on the Warehouse's clapboard siding.

The Francis Hardy Gallery is home to some of the most creative and popular gallery exhibitions in Door County, and once you visit, it is easy to see why established and emerging artists alike love to show their work in a simple wooden warehouse.

In addition to being recognized for its outstanding exhibits, the Hardy continues to fulfill Francis Hardy's vision to create a climate of understanding and appreciation of the arts. The Hardy is committed to providing the Door County community with innovative educational programming for people of all ages in the arts.

Un fonctionnement qui a le mérite de bénéficier à tous et gratuitement, qui fait plaisir à savoir dans un pays ou même la culture et l'éducation s'achètent.
Excellente initiative qui perdure semble-il.

It always heartens me to learn about any community supporting the arts. It sounds like their program is innovative, perhaps as interesting as the exterior of their building!
