Our May featured artist is Madison illustrator and screen printer, Lesley Anne Numbers of Patchwork Printshop. Hatch will be showcasing her latest project; “Solstice Sketches”. Starting with the summer solstice and going through the winter solstice, Lesley made a drawing of a local plant almost every day. The drawings are pen and marker on recycled tea bags mounted on recycled 5″ x 7″ card stock. Lesley wanted to challenge herself and was inspired by the flowers in her own backyard to start this project. Hatch will also be showing her screen prints. “I find inspiration in children’s artwork, vintage textiles and illustrations, and all of the beautiful forms, colors, and patterns found in nature.”
The artist reception will be coinciding with the MMoCA Gallery Night, Friday, May 1st from 5-9 pm and the show will run May 1st through the 31st. More here.

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.
