The Hardy Gallery continues tradition with the opening of its 52nd Annual Juried Exhibit, an exhibition showcasing a broad range of work by local and regional visual artists. In celebration, the exhibit opens with a free public reception from 5:30 to 7 pm on June 6.

On view June 7 through July 13 at the dockside gallery, the exhibit includes work by more than 70 artists. The exhibit provides support and visibility for both emerging and established artists in Door County and surrounding region.
