The Hatch Art House featured artist for April is paper mache sculpture, Steve Wirtz. Titled: “TAXidermy” in honor of the dreaded tax due date, April 15th, Steve has created trophy like, paper mache animal sculptures using old tax forms. In Steve’s words: “Finishing my taxes for the year is like landing a big fish, or bagging a big game trophy. It’s an accomplishment. They say nothing is certain except death and taxes. Well, I say all I know is life and taxes, because no animals were harmed in the making of this exhibit. I hope you enjoy it, and many happy returns.”
The artist reception will be Friday, April 11th 6-9pm and the exhibit will run from April 1st to April 30th.

The November featured artist is fiber and handbag artist, Joan Kennedy. Joan’s handbag shapes and motifs have traditionally been inspired by nature but recently, she’s been exploring shapes within the urban landscape. Joan is also incorporating industrial metal pieces into her work which balance out the upcycled wool she uses. Her work is part of the ancient tradition of creating beautiful but functional objects essential to daily life.
Joan’s work will be showcased November 1-30th with an artist reception Friday, November 8th from 6-9pm. Refreshments will be served.
