May Featured Artist: Helen Mary Beck & Gallery Night

 

The Hatch Art House featured artist for May is Helen Mary Beck. She is a mixed media artist working with watercolor on canvas highlighted with embroidery. With a background in art therapy, Helen is passionate about the importance of story-telling in art making. With her unique technique of combining watercolor with embroidery, Helen Mary Beck creates textured paintings that capture the imagery within science, beauty and nature. Beck’s contrast of the unpredictability of her bold watercolor on canvas combined with the meticulous detail of her embroidered patterns gives her work a striking individuality.
Helen’s work will be showcased May 1st-31st with her artist reception coinciding with MMoCA’s Gallery Night, May 2nd from 5-9pm.

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.

June Happenings at Hatch

The June featured artist is Mark Evans, gelatin (monotype) print artist. Most recently, Mark has been exploring relief printing. His latest body of work is executed using a gelatin plate, creating abstract and mildly representational monoprints. Gelatin printing is a form of monoprinting in which a gelatin slab is used as a printing `plate’ in conjunction with standard water soluble printing inks to create images. Very little pressure is required to make monoprints using this technique – no presses required.
Mark will have his work showcased at Hatch Art House from June 1st-30th with an artist reception Friday, June 14th from 6-9pm. Refreshments and good times will be served.

Also, on Friday June 21st, the summer solstice, Hatch will be host to 6 different musicians during Make Music Madison, a city-wide event! To see who’s playing and at which time search for Hatch under Venue on their website.  June 21st also happens to be the deadline for entry for the EcoSculpt Art Show! That gives you 2 weeks to make a sculpture! (or 3).  I put together a Pinterest page of ideas and here is the EcoSculpt info. The show will run for the month of July.
