August Featured Artist: Photographer Ryan Mense

 

The Hatch Art House August featured artist is Madison photographer, Ryan Mense. In Ryan’s words; “I’m a Wisconsinite born and raised, currently residing in the state capitol of Madison. I began capturing photos in the northwoods, which really helps to explain my fascination with nature subjects and landscapes. Now that I’m living in downtown Madison, my work has increasingly become more well-rounded, while still seeking out the small details I grew up looking for.
My goal is to create art that obeys a technical workflow for impeccable quality and refined aesthetics, while also interpreting my subjects in a way that best reflects my feelings and vision. My work comprises of using professional photographic equipment to best capture the scenes that I spend a lot of time searching and waiting for. I process and adjust the images in a way that best expresses the emotion I experienced while on location. Because every detail of the image is explored in processing, the final product is deliberate and fully-realized.”
Ryan will have his photos showcased at Hatch Art House from August 1st-31st with an artist reception Friday, August 8th from 6-9pm. Refreshments will be served.

Summer Fever

Whew! It’s nearing the end of August and boy, it’s been a busy one! The August Artist reception was very well received… linocut artist, Juliet Darken is officially a Hatch hit!

It was a perfectly, gorgeous night for an art opening!

Other news: Sunday, August 28th, Hatch will have a booth at Orton Park Festival… Here is a link. http://www.marquette-neighborhood.org/activities/index.php?category_id=4733&subcategory_id=7864  Hatch will also be open, with our favorite potter, Jenny Blasen, working in the shop.

We’ve had a lot of new work arrive in the shop lately. Here are some photos …

Steve Wirtz paper mache sculptures.

McKenzie Glynn makes wallets and clutches from discarded banners. Wallets are $22 and clutches are $48. A range of colors and designs... no two are alike:)

Vintage Chic is spot on for this pair of lovely and kinda hard to find, ice cream parlor chairs (1930's?)... Twisted wrought iron and newly constructed seats will hold you up no problem:) $98 each.

Tote Bags...a great use of vintage fabric! Lightweight and the perfect size. Be the envy of your fellow farmer's market shoppers:) $26 by Naystalgia Vintage Creations.

Juliet Darken, August Featured Artist

The featured Hatch Art House artist for August is Juliet Darken… an illustrator, designer, fine artist, and Madison native.  She creates whimsical, yet sophisticated pieces with traditional relief printmaking techniques, sometimes with small additions of collage and graphite. This involves a complex process of reversing the original design, carving, and printing each color as a separate layer. In her opinion, the most important thing for people to learn is how to communicate, and she enjoys adding her personal visual language to the human conversation.

Stop by Hatch from 6-9pm to celebrate Juliet’s work! Refreshments will be served. There is a parking lot behind Hatch off of Baldwin St.
