PICKUP ARTWORK:  February 2nd-5th.

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.

A few years ago, 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 for the month of January 2017, with an artist reception on Friday, January 13th.  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 art works….have fun creating!

June Featured Artist: Kamryn Kay Boelk Of Permanent Baggage

The Hatch Art House June featured artist is jewelry and accessory designer, Kamryn Kay of Permanent Baggage. She describes her work as urban and edgy, with a soft bohemian flair, and creates a variety of work ranging from leather and metal jewelry to leather shoulder bags. “I have a great fondness for materials, texture, and color. I’m always trying to use these elements in a way that sort of juxtapose themselves…I love the slight battle that happens with this. To achieve this I tend to combine leather, metals, fabrics, gemstones, and laces. I like to make things that give off an inherent toughness but are still approachable with an underlying softness and femininity. A beautiful warrior, I guess you could say, which is a theme I feel many women can relate to or desire to exude. “
Kamryn will have her work showcased at Hatch Art House from June 1st-30th with an artist reception Friday, June 13th from 6-9pm. Refreshments will be served.

April Featured Artist: Steve Wirtz

The Hatch Art House featured artist for April is paper mache sculpture, Steve Wirtz. Titled: “TAXidermy” in honor of the dreaded tax due date, April 15th, Steve has created trophy like, paper mache animal sculptures using old tax forms. In Steve’s words: “Finishing my taxes for the year is like landing a big fish, or bagging a big game trophy. It’s an accomplishment. They say nothing is certain except death and taxes. Well, I say all I know is life and taxes, because no animals were harmed in the making of this exhibit. I hope you enjoy it, and many happy returns.”
The artist reception will be Friday, April 11th 6-9pm and the exhibit will run from April 1st to April 30th.
