We are saddened to report the death of another artist from the Tyler collection. Hardy Hanson passed away in Santa Cruz, California, on January 26.
Hanson worked with Ken Tyler at Gemini GEL in 1965 to produce four print editions: Vault for the deposit of justice, The prophet of justice, Peculiar evolution, Crusadist and Holy One. Throughout his life Hanson maintained his art practice in print and in painting. He taught visual art to many generations of students at several universities in the United States and was Professor Emeritus in art at the University of California’s Santa Cruz campus.
We extend our sympathies to Hanson’s family and friends.
