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.
||During the month of December, Hatch Art House will be celebrating their 2nd anniversary by showcasing all 40 Hatch artists with gift giving art for $40 or less. As always, Hatch only represents Wisconsin based artists with the majority from the Madison area. Hatch also has an emphasis on upcycled and recycled material both in artwork and in the shop itself. The artist reception will be Friday, December 14th from 6-9pm. Many local artists will be in attendance to talk about their work. We’ll have sweet treats and festive drinks on hand.
This holiday season, remember to shop small businesses and stay local. Hatch features ONLY Wisconsin artists, 95% of which are from the Madison area. When you buy from Hatch you know you are buying local.
Hatch is one of the 3 galleries involved in the spring Habitat for Humanity Restore Salvage Art Show… they are having their Call for Artists until January 7th. Feel free to ask me (Tammy) questions or contact the Restore. We’d love to have your work in the Salvage Art Show! http://www.restoredane.org/art-show-201/
||The September featured artist is Madison Potter, Jenny Blasen. Jenny was first introduced to ceramics in college as an exchange student in Japan. Many nights and weekends in community studio spaces over the years have led to her own studio in her home where she works on her pottery whenever possible.
Jenny says; “I make functional pieces for everyday use. I use texture in my work and found objects, including lace, fabric, stamps, and leaves. Some of my most popular items are my yarn bowls and hand built plates.”
Jenny will be showcasing her work at Hatch from September 1-31st with an artist reception on Friday, September 14th, 6-9pm. Good times and refreshments will be served.
