Our May featured artist is Madison illustrator and screen printer, Lesley Anne Numbers of Patchwork Printshop. Hatch will be showcasing her latest project; “Solstice Sketches”. Starting with the summer solstice and going through the winter solstice, Lesley made a drawing of a local plant almost every day. The drawings are pen and marker on recycled tea bags mounted on recycled 5″ x 7″ card stock. Lesley wanted to challenge herself and was inspired by the flowers in her own backyard to start this project. Hatch will also be showing her screen prints. “I find inspiration in children’s artwork, vintage textiles and illustrations, and all of the beautiful forms, colors, and patterns found in nature.”
The artist reception will be coinciding with the MMoCA Gallery Night, Friday, May 1st from 5-9 pm and the show will run May 1st through the 31st. More here.
Here is a piece about Lesley’s show in the Capital Times by Lindsay Christians.
The April featured artist is Madison painter and illustrator, Rebekah Simensen, aka “Ninjagrl”. Rebekah tells the story of Ninjagrl and her pet turtle through her paintings. Ninjagrl is based on the real-life story of Rebekah and her cat named Turtle. Turtle proved to be a loyal companion and unending source of inspiration, in addition, her time spent as a volunteer at the Seattle Aquarium opened her eyes to the wonders of the ocean world. She hopes to emulate the aquarium’s mission in her own, small way – to inspire conservation of our marine environment by providing glimpses of the amazing creatures that live there in her unique ninja style.
Rebekah’s artist reception will be held Friday, April 10th from 6-9pm. The show will run for the month of April.
Vicki creates work that is vibrant, relatable, and most of all, brings beauty to the subject matter. She uses a vivid color palette, while pushing the work with a simplicity that allows each piece to stand alone, and adding just a bit of untraditional visual interest with design elements throughout.
Vicki states, “Most of my recent work has been saturated in the natural world, of which I’ve always been completely entranced. Whether its a killer whale, or frog legged beetle, I see beauty in all creatures. I try to capture that with a non traditional color palette, adding hints of geometric pattern, or metallic embellishments, to invite the viewer further into each piece.”
Vicki Liu’s paintings will be showcased for the month of March with an artist reception Friday, March 13th from 6-9pm.
