PICKUP ARTWORK:  February 2,3,4th.

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 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 2016, with an artist reception on Friday, January 8th.  The deadline for entry is December 18th. 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!

September Featured Artist: Katie Gamb

The featured September artist for Hatch Art House is illustrator, Katie Gamb. Katie says, “I’m inspired by all sorts of things- fairy tales, natural history, surrealism, the outdoors, books, discomfort, that feeling you get when you’re trying to remember something important, juxtapositions, over-thinking things, and lengthy explanations.” Her work transcends you into her magical world.
Katie will have her work showcased at Hatch Art House from September 1-30 with an artist reception on Friday, September 11th from 6-9pm. Refreshments will be served. Check out the Facebook event page here.

June Featured Artist: Erin Bowe

The June featured artist is Madison jewelry designer and metalsmith, Erin Bowe. Erin will be highlighting her new “Men’s Line” just in time for Father’s day. Money clips, tie clips, cuff links, keychains, rings and even ‘manly earrings’ are included in this new line. We will, of course, have her women’s jewelry line available as always. Erin is using a new technique for the money clips; “roller printing” is the process of embossing metal using a rolling mill and a die of some sort, like paper. Annealed (softened) metal is run through the rolling mill with the die to imprint the design on the metal.
The artist reception will be Friday, June 12th from 6-9pm with the show running for the month of June.

September featured artist: Emily Maryniak

September featured artist is Emily Maryniak. Emily is a Madison printmaker working mainly with relief and silkscreen prints. She says; “My favorite part of both processes is that moment when you first see the image after printing; when you peel it from the block on the press or when you first lift up the screen.  There is a little bit of mystery and magic involved in this historic process and I feel so lucky to experience it! “
Emily’s artist statement:
All of my art comes from nature.  I strive to capture the essence of the landscape, person, animal or object that I am drawing.  For me, drawing is thinking; it helps me to clarify the things I see in my environment and then allows me to share them with others.  I then make prints from my drawings which allow me to experiment with layers of color and line quality. Recently, the subject matter of my prints have been the things I appreciate around me in Madison; the the rows of houses, the boats sailing on Lake Mendota, the effect of wind on the water,  a soybean farm field with silo that has been standing for generations, and fresh produce grown in the soil from a tiny seed.  I hope that my art encourages others to notice and appreciate these same things in nature.

Emily will have her work showcased at Hatch Art House from September 1st-30th with an artist reception Friday, September 12th from 6-9pm.  Facebook event page

August Featured Artist: Photographer Ryan Mense

 

The Hatch Art House August featured artist is Madison photographer, Ryan Mense. In Ryan’s words; “I’m a Wisconsinite born and raised, currently residing in the state capitol of Madison. I began capturing photos in the northwoods, which really helps to explain my fascination with nature subjects and landscapes. Now that I’m living in downtown Madison, my work has increasingly become more well-rounded, while still seeking out the small details I grew up looking for.
My goal is to create art that obeys a technical workflow for impeccable quality and refined aesthetics, while also interpreting my subjects in a way that best reflects my feelings and vision. My work comprises of using professional photographic equipment to best capture the scenes that I spend a lot of time searching and waiting for. I process and adjust the images in a way that best expresses the emotion I experienced while on location. Because every detail of the image is explored in processing, the final product is deliberate and fully-realized.”
Ryan will have his photos showcased at Hatch Art House from August 1st-31st with an artist reception Friday, August 8th from 6-9pm. Refreshments will be served.

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.
