The Hardy Gallery is launching a Call for Artists for the wildly popular Community Mosaic Project; people from all creative backgrounds and all ages are encouraged to participate. The Community Mosaic Project was first launched in 2008 in partnership with The Artists Guild in Sturgeon Bay as a way to bring together the community and create a visual tapestry of public art. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the mosaic project and once again there will be free 6×6 canvases available to the public, which have been generously donated by The Artists Guild, LLC.
The Hardy is seeking submissions of original artwork from the community; individuals, artists, students, and art enthusiasts are invited to submit work in any medium. Past submissions have included photography, three-dimensional and sculptural work, assemblages, fiber work, painting, writing and collaborative works. All artwork should fit neatly on a 6×6 canvas with minimal installation difficulty accompanied with a completed Artist Statement form.
Canvases are available now at The Artists Guild, LLC in Sturgeon Bay (215 N 3rd Ave), Dahl Law Firm in Sister Bay (10589 S. Highland Road, Suite 4) and at The Hardy Gallery Office in Ephraim by appointment only. Call 920.854.2210 or email [email protected]. Canvases will be available at The Hardy Gallery starting June 1 (3083 Anderson Lane, Ephraim). Canvases are due back to The Hardy Gallery or the Artists Guild by July 9, finished or unfinished.
The grand unveiling of the Community Mosaic Wall will be at the Hardy Gallery in Ephraim on July 21 at the opening reception from 5:30 to 7 pm. The Community Mosaic Project runs in conjunction with the Collection Invitational and Collectors Choice Benefit, on display from July to Aug. 27, 2017. For more information visit thehardy.org.
