Why the Hardy Gallery?


Situated on the picturesque shoreline of Eagle Harbor in the historic village of Ephraim, Wisconsin, the non-profit Hardy Gallery provides truly unique experiences that enrich the cultural fabric of our community through rotating seasonal exhibitions, educational programs and special events. Learn about the artisans and craftspeople who live and work on the peninsula in a uniquely Door County setting. Patrons can enjoy exhibitions of local and regional artists, the much-celebrated Community Mosaic Project, take in spectacular sunset views, enjoy meeting local plein air painters in and around the gallery or even take in a concert of classical music at a Midsummer’s Music concert, held annually within the historic facility.

We aim to present exhibits and initiatives that address the needs of the local artist community, the creative enrichment of local youth and the promotion of the visual arts and artists of the Door County peninsula. Visit us and you'll see why we are known as the premiere destination for learning about the visual arts and working artists of Door County!
