Hardy Tree Gallery is a London based art gallery. The gallery promotes the work of emerging visual artists, photographers and performance artists. Co-founders Cameron Maxwell and Amalie Russell, aim to create a space which pushes boundaries and gives artists the freedom to bring their visions to life.
Hardy Tree Gallery is located next to St. Pancras station. The name Hardy Tree comes from a tree in the St. Pancras churchyard. Before turning to writing full time, Thomas Hardy worked as an architect apprentice and in the 1860’s was commissioned to dismantle tombs in the churchyard to allow the new St. Pancras train tracks to pass through. Rather than discard the many gravestones, Hardy placed them around a tree.
The tree, which has grown amongst the gravestones, represents growth, memories and the history of the area.
