In Environmental Sculpture, award-winning artist and educator Sherrill Hardy presents seven of her most innovative and environmentally-focused sculpture installations alongside deep discussions about these imaginative works of art, their inspiration and sources, their purpose, history, and importance in a world facing environmental crisis. Hardy uses these discussions to enhance viewers’ understanding of these sculptures, deepen their appreciation of art, and see art’s relevance to the natural surroundings that sustain us all. By growing such understanding among those viewing the art and learning more about the mind of the artist who created it, Hardy challenges readers to see the impact humans have had on the natural environment and helps them recognize the importance of changing the way we interact with our surroundings. Critics have raved about the authenticity and honesty of these works and have marveled at her persistence and dedication to her work and to the causes the work highlights. Mary Ann Anderson, writing in an article in Arts Alive cites “a willingness to go the extra distance” as a hallmark of Hardy's research in preparing her installations and says she exhibits a “drive to be responsible to the world around her and use her art as a way of voicing that vision of a better world for humanity.”
A career-long artist, educator, and administrator, Sherrill Hardy’s work has been exhibited in both solo and group exhibitions in British Columbia and Manitoba, Canada, as well as in Italy and at the San Miguel Instituto Allende in Mexico. Her drawing, painting, writing, and sculpture have garnered her much attention and a long list of exhibitions in Vancouver, the North Shore, and in the interior of British Columbia. In 1991, Sherrill was awarded The Commemorative Medal for the 125th Anniversary of the Confederation of Canada in recognition of significant contribution to compatriots, community, and to Canada. She was a founding member of the North Shore Charitable Foundation, the Director and Founder of the Seymour Art Gallery, North Vancouver, and the first President of the Deep Cove Cultural Centre. A devoted mother and grandmother, Hardy lives in “beautiful, bountiful” British Columbia and continues to produce new art and inspire positive social and environmental change.
