Signing and Reading with Franne Dickinson

The Hardy Gallery is pleased to present a book signing and reading from local Door County artist, Franne Dickinson. Dickinson’s newly published book, Stay at the Party Long…at play in the Arts is a survey of the artist’s lifelong work combined with autobiographical text that describes the artist’s process throughout the years. Dickinson began her art career in Chicago and eventually settled in Door County to open The Toe Path Studio. Dickinson’s work follows the methodologies of French Modernist masters Matisse, van Dongen and Toulouse-Lautrec with an eccentric color palette combined with simple everyday still life and portrait scenes.

Dickinson will sign books and sell gicleé prints and posters of her work at the Hardy Gallery on Aug. 22, 2 – 4 pm. The reading will begin after 2 pm. A portion of sales will benefit the Hardy Gallery’s mission in supporting Door County artists. For more information, call 920.854.2210 or email [email protected].
