July Art Show Featuring Polka! Press Printmaking Collective

For the month of July, Hatch Art House is featuring artists of Polka! Press, a local printmaking collective.
Their shared studio space is equipped with screen-printing and letterpress equipment, and members’ art making practices include bookmaking, textile design, and other print methods. The cooperative was founded in 2011 with the goal of promoting a vibrant local printmaking culture by offering access to printmaking facilities and providing educational opportunities to the Madison community.
The show will run for the month of July with an artist reception Friday, July 14th from 6-9pm. Refreshments will be served.

PICKUP ARTWORK:  February 2nd-5th.

As many of you know, here at Hatch Art House we have a few goals that we strive for on a daily basis.

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 75+ 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 2017, with an artist reception on Friday, January 13th.  The deadline for entry is December 21st. 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!

January 2013 Happenings…including the EcoSquared Art Show!

2012 was kind of a big year for Hatch. I learned a ton and we grew a lot! We now have 43 artists, up from the 20 we started with back in December of 2010.  Twice as many artists means twice as much work…so thank you for being patient with me while I figure out how to achieve a nice balance (and maybe get a bit more help!). I am THRILLED with the way Hatch is growing! So many people are embracing the ‘shop local’ culture and are happy to have us here on Willy Street.  That being said; I THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for supporting Hatch and every artist in the shop!

To kick off the year 2013 we are embarking into the world of themed art shows! For the months of January and February you can stop in and see our small works show; EcoSquared. Artists were given the opportunity to create work between 6″ square to 8″ square while incorporating upcycled materials.  All priced between $50-$100. The results are fun, creative and very inspiring! All are available for purchase but we do appreciate pick-up near the end of the show. We’ll be having our opening reception for EcoSquared,  Friday, January 11th from 6-9pm. The artists will be available to talk with and we’ll have refreshments on hand. Please join us!
