Hatch Art House is part of Gallery Night!
Friday, May 6th is the big night…
Potter extraordinaire, Jenny Blasen,
will be the featured artist for May.
Mark your calendars, it should be a fun night:)
April kinda snuck up on me! But it’s here now which means it’s time to announce Tahlia Day as our April featured artist! In Tahlia’s words, she wants to “set the stage for viewers to imagine stories; I love fictional worldbuilding and I’m a major geek and lifelong fan of science fiction and fantasy…. I layer watercolor, ink, and other media over random watercolor grounds to bring out shapes I see, and they gradually begin to resemble fantastical maps or topographical forms.”
Join us at Hatch Friday, April 8th from 6-9 pm for the Artist Reception. Wine and beer will be available;)
March is here!
Which means it’s time to announce our Featured Artist…. Keith Dotson! He is a photographer who works mainly in black and white. To quote Keith, “Nature is the fundamental basis of my art. My studio is the landscape in all its forms, from abstractions and patterns to bold, sweeping vistas (and even the urban landscape as well).”
Join us at Hatch Friday, March 11 from 6-9 pm for the Artist Reception. Wine and beer will be available;)
Tonight (Friday) we are having a sweet reception featuring Nathan Gieseke’s work. He is a fabulous Blown Glass Artist who’s newest pieces are being featured tonight. He has made glass flowers which are very beautiful and surely won’t disappear into the compost bin in a week:) The flowers are showcased along with his blown glass vases, paperweights, and sculptural work. Stop by from 6-9pm, enjoy a glass of wine or PBR and check out ALL the wonderful gifts Hatch has in store for you and your sweetheart!
Check out the Dane Buy Local website… Buy local whenever possible:)
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.
