April Featured Artist; Rebekah Simensen

The April featured artist is Madison painter and illustrator, Rebekah Simensen, aka “Ninjagrl”. Rebekah tells the story of Ninjagrl and her pet turtle through her paintings. Ninjagrl is based on the real-life story of Rebekah and her cat named Turtle. Turtle proved to be a loyal companion and unending source of inspiration, in addition, her time spent as a volunteer at the Seattle Aquarium opened her eyes to the wonders of the ocean world. She hopes to emulate the aquarium’s mission in her own, small way – to inspire conservation of our marine environment by providing glimpses of the amazing creatures that live there in her unique ninja style.
Rebekah’s artist reception will be held Friday, April 10th from 6-9pm. The show will run for the month of April.

March Featured Artist; Vicki Liu

Vicki creates work that is vibrant, relatable, and most of all, brings beauty to the subject matter. She uses a vivid color palette, while pushing the work with a simplicity that allows each piece to stand alone, and adding just a bit of untraditional visual interest with design elements throughout.
Vicki states, “Most of my recent work has been saturated in the natural world, of which I’ve always been completely entranced. Whether its a killer whale, or frog legged beetle, I see beauty in all creatures. I try to capture that with a non traditional color palette, adding hints of geometric pattern, or metallic embellishments, to invite the viewer further into each piece.”
Vicki Liu’s paintings will be showcased for the month of March with an artist reception Friday, March 13th from 6-9pm.

Small SQUARE art works….have fun creating!

ecosquared 2015

As many of you know, here at Hatch Art House we have a few goals that we strive for on a daily basis.

Mainly, when you buy something from Hatch, you know it’s being produced locally. Our rule is that you must reside in Wisconsin to be a Hatch artist. Although, the majority of our 50+ artists live in the Madison area.  We have an emphasis on repurposing, upcycling and recycling…  if we can keep things out of the landfill and give it a new life in art, we’ve done a great thing. We strive to offer something for everyone at affordable prices in a casual and creatively-charged environment.

A couple years ago, Hatch embarked into the world of hosting art shows! Hatch being a small space, a SMALL WORKS art show seemed appropriate; thus EcoSquared Art Show. Also, an upcycling theme along with affordable pricing to continue with the Hatch emphasis.  The show will run for the month of January 2015, with an artist reception on Friday, January 10th.  The deadline for entry is Sunday, December 14th. The rest of the dates to know are listed on the forms below.

The guidelines are listed in the printable forms, which I encourage you to pass on to anyone you think would be interested.  This show will be juried by myself (Tammy Schreiter) mainly to make sure all entries fit into the scheme and follow the guidelines. As well as being a painter and dabbler of many other art forms, I most recently was a juror of the 2013 Art Fair Off the Square,  2012 MMoCA Art Fair on the Square and the MMoCA 2011 Holiday Art Fair.

If you’ve submitted your artwork to Hatch in the past, I encourage you to enter this show. This is your opportunity to be a Hatch artist!
