Gerald Hardy graduated from the Art Institute of Chicago in 1960. He has worked in watercolors, oils, and sculpture and has moved on to develop unique techniques in his etchings and paintings. His one-person exhibitions include Interchurch Center Gallery in New York City, University of Chicago, and galleries in the midwest, California, New England, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida. His work is in collections of the Birmingham Museum of Art, the Mint Museum in Charlotte, Ford Motor Company, and in more than 2000 private collections.
Many of Mr. Hardy's paintings depict small towns, lakes, rivers, and waterfronts of beautiful New England.
"I often go up in a small plane or helicopter," says the artist. "I like looking down on the earth. It gives me a spiritual feeling to see landscapes and mountains stretching in all directions."
Several of his paintings depict fly-fishing, harbor compositions, beach children, and wildlife, all subjects that are full of symbolism.
