  • At 79, Henry Gernhardt’s hands have twisted, turned, pressed, pounded, painted and baked globs of earth into works of art for more than 73 years.
    The artist, who now lives and works just outside of Cedar Key with his wife, Amy, grew up in rural Connecticut in a family he describes as being mostly engineers and mechanics.
    “I just couldn’t get into that,” he says. “I always did things different.”
    So, Gernhardt started a formal education in the arts at Norwich Art School in the early 1950s.
