Out of the Ashes…

Artist Bernard Hardy has been making art for decades, and a large portion of his creations were destroyed, along with his house and studio, in the 2003 Canberra bushfires. This didn't stop his drive to make pictures and sculpture, as a new retrospective of his work in Braidwood shows. "Bernard's engagement with image-making is wonderfully multi-faceted, investigative, deeply thoughtful yet playful and fundamentally ebullient," says Julian Davies, the owner of The Left Hand gallery. "He has a truly apt and sharp observing eye combined with a strong transforming imagination." Out of the Ashes, by Bernard Hardy, is showing at The Left Hand, 81 Lascelles Street, Braidwood, for three weekends from July 23-24, 30-31 and August 6-7, or by appointment on 0422 530 846.
