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.

October Featured Artist; Lisa Hepburn Ceramics & Gallery Night!

The October featured artist is Ceramics artist Lisa Hepburn. Lisa’s current work is informed by both a decades love pre-Colombian Mexican Pottery and a more recent obsession with all things mid-century modern. (A friend puts her design aesthetic this way: Mixtec meets Mad Men). Most of her work is built by hand with slab and coil methods. Most recently she has been experimenting with sculptural vase forms with unexpected negative space. While much of her current work is functional, she strives to create a sculptural sensibility in each piece. Above all, her work is meant to be touched.

Lisa will have her work showcased at Hatch Art House from October 1st-31st with an artist reception Friday, October 4th from 5-9pm coinciding with the city-wide MMoCA Gallery Night. Refreshments will be served along with an outside performance by singer/songwriter Karen Wheelock.
