The Hardy Gallery announces that Stephanie Trenchard has been selected to be this year’s raffle fundraiser artist. Trenchard is one of the most important glass artists working in the medium today whose work is inspired by narrative forms that tell a unique story of time and place.
The piece she created for The Hardy Gallery focuses on the robust history of Door County, specifically cataloguing the settlement of Ephraim and its connections to the Anderson family. Trenchard’s piece, “Luna Walking” is an assembled sand cast glass sculpture that is divided into three inclusions, each symbolizing aspects of Ephraim’s heritage.
“When I look at pictures of Ephraim from 150 years ago I can relate to what it felt like to walk under the moonlight on the water. It still feels the same. The messages that we get from nature are timeless,” said Trenchard.
Raffle tickets are 1 for $5 or 5 for $20 and available for purchase at the gallery now through Oct. 14. The drawing is held Oct. 15 at 1 pm. All proceeds go toward sustaining The Hardy Gallery’s programming. For more information visit thehardy.org or call 920.854.2210.
