PICKUP ARTWORK:  February 2,3,4th.

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 few 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 was born. Also, an upcycling theme along with affordable pricing to continue with the Hatch emphasis.  The show will run for the month of January 2016, with an artist reception on Friday, January 8th.  The deadline for entry is December 18th. The rest of the dates to know are listed on the calendar above and 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 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 was also a juror for 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! Small SQUARE art works….have fun creating!

June Featured Artist: Erin Bowe

The June featured artist is Madison jewelry designer and metalsmith, Erin Bowe. Erin will be highlighting her new “Men’s Line” just in time for Father’s day. Money clips, tie clips, cuff links, keychains, rings and even ‘manly earrings’ are included in this new line. We will, of course, have her women’s jewelry line available as always. Erin is using a new technique for the money clips; “roller printing” is the process of embossing metal using a rolling mill and a die of some sort, like paper. Annealed (softened) metal is run through the rolling mill with the die to imprint the design on the metal.
The artist reception will be Friday, June 12th from 6-9pm with the show running for the month of June.
