The Glories of the Door County Rural Landscape

On Saturday, September 6, the Francis Hardy Center for the Arts in Ephraim will open “The Glories of the Door County Rural Landscape,” an exhibition that will take viewers on an engaging and thought-provoking visual exploration of Door County’s rural landscapes through the eyes of fine art photographer Paul Lurie.

Paul Lurie, a Chicago-native, has been inspired by the pristine Door County landscape since first visiting the peninsula in the 1970s. Lurie is now a seasonal Door County resident and has extensively documented the importance of old farm buildings to the cultural landscape of Door County. His simple, stunning photographs and unique perspective provide an ideal platform with which to promote awareness, along with preservation, of cultural landscapes.

The historic Anderson Warehouse, which houses the Francis Hardy Gallery, will display the exhibit through Monday, October 13.

“The Glories of the Door County Rural Landscape” will open with a special reception on Saturday, September 6 from 5 – 7 pm. The gallery is open daily 10 am – 5 pm. Admission is free. For more information, visit or call 920.854.2210.
