 Terry S. Hardy addresses themes of identity, human rights, sexuality, and religion, examining social concerns through painting, sculpture, performance and installations. His most recent work focuses on the intimacy of loss and memorializing those who are forgotten.

His work has been included in over 80 exhibitions in venues throughout the US and abroad, including Lincoln Center in New York, The Mint Museum of Art in Charlotte, NC, and The Historic Freedom Riders Museum in Montgomery, AL. Hardy has presented large scale public works at the Art Prospect Festival in St. Petersburg, Russia, the National Center for Contemporary Art in Nizhniy Novgorod, Russia, The Cultural Olympiad in Atlanta, GA and in Art in Odd Places in New York and Sydney, Australia.
