Welcome to “web” Hatch! I will do my best to learn the ways of the blog world as quickly as possible… but until then, well…
Perhaps I should give you a little background about us. Many moons ago, I had “hatched” an idea. (Sorry, couldn’t resist!) You guessed it, I wanted to own an art gallery! Life took over and my dream plan was pushed aside. Fast forward to June 2010… after a 6 1/2 year stint in Portland, Oregon I was driving a Penske truck across the country with my faithful traveling companion, Donovan.
Moving back to my home state of Wisconsin, I had a lot of fear but also a lot of hope and anticipation. I knew I had to fulfill the dream. Having a background in retail and gallery arts, I’m confident in my plan for supporting and selling local art!
I was thrilled when I found the gallery location on Willy Street! (Across from the Willy St. Co-op) It’s been months since the first look at the empty space, in a new building, but it’s FINALLY coming together!!! There are walls and everything:)
Hatch will open its doors Friday, December 3rd, 2010. Yes, it’s coming up soon! There is a wonderful variety of artists that will be displaying and selling their work. So please stop by and check it out! I will be posting photos of artwork here whenever possible.
Hatch will display a wide variety of artwork at a broad range of prices, offering something for everyone. Every month, Hatch will host an art opening highlighting a featured artist. It’s sure to be a vibrant space, full of fun, beautiful and unique hand-crafted items and fine art.
