Best known as a portrait painter, in 1928, Hardrick painted a 6'x8' mural for the Allen AME Church Chapel entitled "Christ and the Samaritan Woman at the Well."

His works reside in collections of the Indiana State Museum, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, and were displayed at the Smithsonian Institution in 1929 and the American Negro Exposition in Chicago in 1940.
