Gregory Hardy

Regarded as one of the top landscape painters of his generation, Greg Hardy's work has been shown in both commercial galleries and public museums for over 40 years. His paintings are included in many private, corporate and public collections such as those of the Canada Council Art Bank, Ottawa, Mendel Art Gallery, Saskatoon, Norman McKenzie Art Gallery, Regina, Edmonton Art Gallery, Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan, SaskTel, and Shell Oil. Hardy's signature response to the landscape is marked by a strong use of colour and a bold painterly touch that consistently makes for paintings charged with power and energy.
