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.

Summer Fever

Whew! It’s nearing the end of August and boy, it’s been a busy one! The August Artist reception was very well received… linocut artist, Juliet Darken is officially a Hatch hit!

It was a perfectly, gorgeous night for an art opening!

Other news: Sunday, August 28th, Hatch will have a booth at Orton Park Festival… Here is a link. http://www.marquette-neighborhood.org/activities/index.php?category_id=4733&subcategory_id=7864  Hatch will also be open, with our favorite potter, Jenny Blasen, working in the shop.

We’ve had a lot of new work arrive in the shop lately. Here are some photos …

Steve Wirtz paper mache sculptures.

McKenzie Glynn makes wallets and clutches from discarded banners. Wallets are $22 and clutches are $48. A range of colors and designs... no two are alike:)

Vintage Chic is spot on for this pair of lovely and kinda hard to find, ice cream parlor chairs (1930's?)... Twisted wrought iron and newly constructed seats will hold you up no problem:) $98 each.

Tote Bags...a great use of vintage fabric! Lightweight and the perfect size. Be the envy of your fellow farmer's market shoppers:) $26 by Naystalgia Vintage Creations.
