EcoSquared Art Show & February Happenings

We are already into our final few weeks of the EcoSquared Art Show here at Hatch… Our opening reception January 11th was a roaring success with a gallery full of creative and energetic people!  Lindsay Christians gave the show quite a boost with her wonderful article in the Arts section of the 77 Square newspaper. Next up is the closing reception this Friday, February 8th from 6-9pm. Stop on by to see what it’s all about! Remember that all art pieces are available for purchase but we do appreciate pick-up near the end of the show. The artists will be available to talk with and we’ll have refreshments on hand. Please join us! Click here for the Facebook Event Page, click on join…then feel free to invite your friends.

eco 2013

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.

December Happenings

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.

Fall Gallery Night Celebrations

The featured artist for October is linocut artist, Juliet Darken… an illustrator, storyteller, designer, fine artist, and Madison native. She creates whimsical, yet sophisticated pieces with traditional relief printmaking techniques, sometimes with small additions of collage and graphite. This involves a complex process of reversing the original design, carving, and printing each color as a separate layer. In her opinion, the most important thing for people to learn is how to communicate, and she enjoys adding her personal visual language to the human conversation.
Juliet’s artwork will be showcased from October 1-31st. The artist reception coincides with the MMoCA citywide Gallery Night, October 5 from 5-9pm. Refreshments will be served.
