August Featured Artist: Photographer Bethany Helzer

The August featured artist is photographer, Bethany Helzer. Bethany grew up in the Detroit area, finding herself intrigued by the beautiful architecture of a city in neglect, and wanted to document this “urban decay” before it disappeared. Now living in Madison, her focus has shifted to our city’s new and old architecture as well as the nature that surrounds us.

Bethany will have her work showcased at Hatch Art House from August 1st-31st with an artist reception Friday, August 9th from 6-9pm. Refreshments and good times will be served. Facebook Event Page

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:)

June Happenings at Hatch

The June featured artist is Mark Evans, gelatin (monotype) print artist. Most recently, Mark has been exploring relief printing. His latest body of work is executed using a gelatin plate, creating abstract and mildly representational monoprints. Gelatin printing is a form of monoprinting in which a gelatin slab is used as a printing `plate’ in conjunction with standard water soluble printing inks to create images. Very little pressure is required to make monoprints using this technique – no presses required.
Mark will have his work showcased at Hatch Art House from June 1st-30th with an artist reception Friday, June 14th from 6-9pm. Refreshments and good times will be served.

Also, on Friday June 21st, the summer solstice, Hatch will be host to 6 different musicians during Make Music Madison, a city-wide event! To see who’s playing and at which time search for Hatch under Venue on their website.  June 21st also happens to be the deadline for entry for the EcoSculpt Art Show! That gives you 2 weeks to make a sculpture! (or 3).  I put together a Pinterest page of ideas and here is the EcoSculpt info. The show will run for the month of July.

March Featured Artist; Rosy Hawbaker

Welcome to March! A month full of weather ups and downs, winter and spring, snow and rain, but also full of hope and sunshine, chirping birds and spring flowers!

Join us to celebrate the hopeful onset of SPRINGTIME with a fun evening at HATCH! Rosy Hawbaker is our featured artist and her artist reception is Friday, March 8th from 6-9pm. There will be adult beverages served and good times, too:)

The March featured artist is Madison designer and screen printer, Rosy Hawbaker of RosyMade Designs. Rosy has a passion for reusing and refreshing thrift store t-shirts and other items with quirky and fun screen printed designs… creating a “new” item.
Rosy says; “I figured out a way to combine my love of thrifting, art and recycling, and now I truly am in love with the work that I am producing. The majority of the work that I produce is made of recycled materials, so you can look cute, feel comfortable, and help the environment.”
Rosy will be showcasing her work at Hatch from March 1-31st.
