The featured February artist for Hatch Art House is Madison ceramics artist, Aly Wheeler. Alison Wheeler grew up in the beautiful Driftless area of southwest Wisconsin. She spent most of her childhood outdoors, climbing trees and working on her parents small organic farm. So naturally, the outdoors is where a lot of her inspiration is found. Her pottery is playful, yet functional. Alison enjoys working with her hands, and finds that every piece created is an individual. She used slip trailing, carving, and hand building techniques to make each piece as unique as possible.
Madison ceramics artists; Lisa Hepburn, Jenny Blasen and Jackie Matelski will be exhibiting their favorite recent clay works in honor of NCECA for the month of March. Artist reception will be Friday, March 14th from 6-9pm. Refreshments and fun times will be served;) To learn more about the 2014 National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts check out their website: http://www.nceca.net And check out the Facebook event page here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1841999265939037/
The October featured artist is Ceramics artist Lisa Hepburn. Lisa’s current work is informed by both a decades love pre-Colombian Mexican Pottery and a more recent obsession with all things mid-century modern. (A friend puts her design aesthetic this way: Mixtec meets Mad Men). Most of her work is built by hand with slab and coil methods. Most recently she has been experimenting with sculptural vase forms with unexpected negative space. While much of her current work is functional, she strives to create a sculptural sensibility in each piece. Above all, her work is meant to be touched.
Lisa will have her work showcased at Hatch Art House from October 1st-31st with an artist reception Friday, October 4th from 5-9pm coinciding with the city-wide MMoCA Gallery Night. Refreshments will be served along with an outside performance by singer/songwriter Karen Wheelock.
