July Happenings at Hatch

This month at Hatch we are showcasing (our first ever) EcoSculpt Art Show for the entire month of July.

EcoSculpt is a small sculptures art show, with an upcycling theme along with affordable pricing. Every piece is under $200 and all artwork incorporates upcycled materials.

As always, Hatch only represents Wisconsin based artists with the majority from the Madison area.
The artist reception will be Friday, July 12th from 6-9pm. Most artists will be in attendance to talk about their work and refreshments will be served.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page for  photos of the artwork in the show!

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:)

Next up for the weekend; Art Fair Off the Square, Saturday the 14th 9-6 and Sunday the 15th 10-5. Hatch artist, Steve Wirtz have been selected (Yes, he’s THAT good…)  to be their FEATURED ARTIST! Steve makes fun-filled paper mache sculptures (think whimsical animals) and also large wire sculptures. (Look up next time you’re in the shop.)  The main thing to remember about this show is that it showcases Wisconsin based artists only. What?! So does HATCH! 🙂 http://www.artcraftwis.org/afos.html

Also this Saturday and Sunday we have Art Fair ON the Square. This year I have been chosen as one of the four jurors for this ENORMOUS art fair. Of course, we’ve already completed the task of narrowing down about 1600 applicants to 450 or so. Saturday we will be judging the artists up close and personal for artist awards including “Best of Show”! Funny thing…I haven’t received any fruit baskets yet;) Kidding. Really… This show is filled with amazing talent from around the country. http://www.mmoca.org/events/artfair/Artists.php
