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, July 11th and we are excited to share with you the exhibit lineup for our 58th season. We look forward to seeing you at the gallery!
58th Annual Juried Exhibit
58th Annual Juried Exhibit | July 11 - August 9
Opening Reception: There will be no opening reception this year due to the pandemic.
*To kick- off this new decade the Hardy Gallery has decided to merge the notable Wall-to-Wall and Annual Juried Exhibit into one six week show. After careful consideration, the Board of Directors felt eliminating the rejection process and allowing everyone to partake in the juried exhibit would make for a better opportunity for our emerging and mid-career artists. In addition, we have decided to select one professional artist to jury the exhibit and offer a juror walk-through to provide an exciting educational opportunity for our exhibiting artists and volunteer docent educators.
A not-to-be-missed season starter and the Hardy's most notable exhibits! We begin with a salon-style show open to both emerging and established artists. Featuring a wide variety of media by local and regional artists: including painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, ceramics, mixed media and more. The exhibit offers emerging artists the opportunity to gauge their development and established artists the opportunity to explore new ideas and techniques. The public is encouraged to cast votes for their favorite piece with the popular "People's Choice Award."
