Small SQUARE art works….have fun creating!

ecosquared 2015

As many of you know, here at Hatch Art House we have a few goals that we strive for on a daily basis.

Mainly, 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 50+ 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 couple 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. Also, an upcycling theme along with affordable pricing to continue with the Hatch emphasis.  The show will run for the month of January 2015, with an artist reception on Friday, January 10th.  The deadline for entry is Sunday, December 14th. The rest of the dates to know are listed 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 by myself (Tammy Schreiter) 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 most recently was a juror of 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!

As always, Hatch only represents Wisconsin based artists with the majority being from the Madison area.
The artist reception will be Friday, January 10th from 6-9pm. Most artists will be in attendance to talk about their work and refreshments will be served.

Another “happening” this month is the Madison Magazine “Best of 2013” ballots are out. Hatch has been nominated for the best “Art Gallery” category. But we ALSO think we would work well under the “Gift Shop/Specialty Store” category! Write us in next to ‘other’ for that one.  Hatch and it’s artists would really appreciate your vote! We’ve worked really hard these past 2 years;) VOTE HERE …The results are announced in the July issue.

January 2013 Happenings…including the EcoSquared Art Show!

2012 was kind of a big year for Hatch. I learned a ton and we grew a lot! We now have 43 artists, up from the 20 we started with back in December of 2010.  Twice as many artists means twice as much work…so thank you for being patient with me while I figure out how to achieve a nice balance (and maybe get a bit more help!). I am THRILLED with the way Hatch is growing! So many people are embracing the ‘shop local’ culture and are happy to have us here on Willy Street.  That being said; I THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for supporting Hatch and every artist in the shop!

To kick off the year 2013 we are embarking into the world of themed art shows! For the months of January and February you can stop in and see our small works show; EcoSquared. Artists were given the opportunity to create work between 6″ square to 8″ square while incorporating upcycled materials.  All priced between $50-$100. The results are fun, creative and very inspiring! All are available for purchase but we do appreciate pick-up near the end of the show. We’ll be having our opening reception for EcoSquared,  Friday, January 11th from 6-9pm. The artists will be available to talk with and we’ll have refreshments on hand. Please join us!

Upcycled Art at Hatch

As many of you know, the deadline to the EcoSquared Art Show is November 21st. I thought I’d share with you some of the artwork in the gallery that incorporates upcycled materials. Upcycled is still a fairly new term, you can learn more here. And remember, the main criteria for Ecosquared is to use something upcycled, have it measure between 6″ square to 8″ square, and have it ready to hang on the wall. We are so excited to see what all of you creative Wisconsinites come up with! Please feel free to leave questions or concerns here in the comment section.

Reclaimed steel and spray paint. “Birds on a Wire” artist Liv Aanrud.

Acrylic house paint on upcycled canvas. “Yellow Leaves” artist Lynn Lee.

Diorama made from a drawer, newspaper and found objects. Artist Beth Heeney.

 

Wall sculpture made with reclaimed wood, found objects (saw blade, nails, drain cover) and wire. Artist Bryan Richgels.

Acrylic painting with incorporated old maps on a cabinet door. Artist Tammy Schreiter.

“Spring”. Found objects (silk flowers, fabric, rope) on upcycled canvas and frame. Artist Beth Heeney.
