The Charlotte Hungerford Hospital (CHH) Auxiliary is featuring the artwork of Gerald Hardy and Marilyn Davis (Hardy) now through early January 2018 in the hospital’s main lobby hallway, 540 Litchfield Street, Torrington. The public is invited to view and buy the works during regular visiting hours as part of the Auxiliary’s ongoing “Artist of the Month” program. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the artwork support the CHH Auxiliary and Charlotte Hungerford Hospital.
Painting and drawing the beauty of the New England countryside; lakes, village scenes, church steeples, waterfronts, and harbors are the most recent inspirations for the Hardys. They enjoy traveling all over the east coast discovering new places in CT and NY. All seasons interest them and they find joy and delight showing people their own towns in a new way.
