From 1 – 4 pm on Thursday, June 25, the Hardy Gallery in Ephraim will host the final workshop scheduled in conjunction with its Community Mosaic Project. The workshop will take place at the Miller Art Museum’s Annex Building in Sturgeon Bay.
The Hardy Gallery provides individuals of all ages and abilities with one six-inch by six-inch blank canvas to create a work of art. There are few restrictions regarding subject matter or the kinds of materials one can use to make the art, except that the artwork must be appropriate for display, created using the provided canvas, and must not exceed the dimensions of the canvas. In addition, participants will receive a note card to include information about their work.
The second-annual Community Mosaic Project is an outreach effort conceived by the Hardy Gallery that focuses on encouraging a community-wide arts effort that will perpetuate the growth and awareness of the arts in Door County. A large-scale mosaic will be constructed of 375 individual six-inch by six-inch canvases, and it will hang concurrently with the Hardy’s Collection Invitational exhibit from July 18 through August 30. The individual canvases will then be sold to benefit the non-profit Hardy Gallery.
For individuals who do not wish to receive instruction but would like to participate, canvases are available through the Hardy Gallery. Completed artworks are due Monday, June 29. For more information call 920.854.2210 or visit http://www.thehardy.org.
