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

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 75+ 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.

In early 2012, 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 January 8th through February 28th, 2019, with an artist reception on Friday, January 11th.  The deadline for entry is December 21st. 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 artworks….have fun creating!

Gallery Night with October Artist; Dave Watkins

For the months of October and November, Hatch Art House will be showcasing the paintings of Milwaukee artist, Dave Watkins. “Dave’s work is influenced by daily interactions with his surroundings. As an abstract painter, his canvas becomes the city, using texture and layers of color to reflect thoughts, feelings, and experiences. A passing train, an urban alley – Each painting takes the viewer on a private journey with their own interpretations.”
The artist reception will be coinciding with the MMoCA Fall Gallery Night, Friday, October 6th from 5-9 pm and the show will run October 1st through November 30th.

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.

Upcycled Art at Hatch

As many of you know, the deadline to the EcoSquared Art Show is November 21st. I thought I’d share with you some of the artwork in the gallery that incorporates upcycled materials. Upcycled is still a fairly new term, you can learn more here. And remember, the main criteria for Ecosquared is to use something upcycled, have it measure between 6″ square to 8″ square, and have it ready to hang on the wall. We are so excited to see what all of you creative Wisconsinites come up with! Please feel free to leave questions or concerns here in the comment section.

Reclaimed steel and spray paint. “Birds on a Wire” artist Liv Aanrud.

Acrylic house paint on upcycled canvas. “Yellow Leaves” artist Lynn Lee.

Diorama made from a drawer, newspaper and found objects. Artist Beth Heeney.

 

Wall sculpture made with reclaimed wood, found objects (saw blade, nails, drain cover) and wire. Artist Bryan Richgels.
