The August featured artist is photographer, Bethany Helzer. Bethany grew up in the Detroit area, finding herself intrigued by the beautiful architecture of a city in neglect, and wanted to document this “urban decay” before it disappeared. Now living in Madison, her focus has shifted to our city’s new and old architecture as well as the nature that surrounds us.
Bethany will have her work showcased at Hatch Art House from August 1st-31st with an artist reception Friday, August 9th from 6-9pm. Refreshments and good times will be served. Facebook Event Page

I’m also honored to be the judge for the Art Fair Off the Square this year! It is put on by the Wisconsin Alliance of Artists and Craftspeople (WAAC). All the artists involved must live in Wisconsin…just like HATCH! This is happening July 13th and 14th. I’ll be there on Saturday with my clipboard in hand; please say hello if you see me:)
It’s warming up out there… That’s a great reason to celebrate! The MMoCA Gallery Night is May 3rd; a wonderful night to showcase the artists who’ve donated their work to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore Salvage Art Show. Spring-themed cocktails and snacks will be served as well:) 5-9pm.

Another “happening” this month is the Madison Magazine “Best of 2013” ballots are out. Hatch has been nominated for the best “Art Gallery” category. But we ALSO think we would work well under the “Gift Shop/Specialty Store” category! Write us in next to ‘other’ for that one. Hatch and it’s artists would really appreciate your vote! We’ve worked really hard these past 2 years;) VOTE HERE …The results are announced in the July issue.
2012 was kind of a big year for Hatch. I learned a ton and we grew a lot! We now have 43 artists, up from the 20 we started with back in December of 2010. Twice as many artists means twice as much work…so thank you for being patient with me while I figure out how to achieve a nice balance (and maybe get a bit more help!). I am THRILLED with the way Hatch is growing! So many people are embracing the ‘shop local’ culture and are happy to have us here on Willy Street. That being said; I THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for supporting Hatch and every artist in the shop!
To kick off the year 2013 we are embarking into the world of themed art shows! For the months of January and February you can stop in and see our small works show; EcoSquared. Artists were given the opportunity to create work between 6″ square to 8″ square while incorporating upcycled materials. All priced between $50-$100. The results are fun, creative and very inspiring! All are available for purchase but we do appreciate pick-up near the end of the show. We’ll be having our opening reception for EcoSquared, Friday, January 11th from 6-9pm. The artists will be available to talk with and we’ll have refreshments on hand. Please join us! Click here for Facebook Event page.
