Valerie Hardy has lived and worked as an artist in Virginia since 1981. She and her husband, the artist Martin Johnson, moved to the Church Hill area of Richmond in 2008. Their studios are at 107 E. Cary Street. She will be in Paris this coming November and December for a residency at the Cite Internationale des Arts.
Over her entire artistic career, Hardy has focussed on the interplay of the objects, the spaces, the light, the people, that catch her eye. Her challenge is to reveal the relationships among and between them, in a way that says something visually interesting while representing these things as identifiably themselv
Hardy's work may be seen by appointment in her studio in Richmond, Virginia.
