August Featured Artist: Photographer Ryan Mense


The Hatch Art House August featured artist is Madison photographer, Ryan Mense. In Ryan’s words; “I’m a Wisconsinite born and raised, currently residing in the state capitol of Madison. I began capturing photos in the northwoods, which really helps to explain my fascination with nature subjects and landscapes. Now that I’m living in downtown Madison, my work has increasingly become more well-rounded, while still seeking out the small details I grew up looking for.
My goal is to create art that obeys a technical workflow for impeccable quality and refined aesthetics, while also interpreting my subjects in a way that best reflects my feelings and vision. My work comprises of using professional photographic equipment to best capture the scenes that I spend a lot of time searching and waiting for. I process and adjust the images in a way that best expresses the emotion I experienced while on location. Because every detail of the image is explored in processing, the final product is deliberate and fully-realized.”
Ryan will have his photos showcased at Hatch Art House from August 1st-31st with an artist reception Friday, August 8th from 6-9pm. Refreshments will be served.

Next up for the weekend; Art Fair Off the Square, Saturday the 14th 9-6 and Sunday the 15th 10-5. Hatch artist, Steve Wirtz have been selected (Yes, he’s THAT good…)  to be their FEATURED ARTIST! Steve makes fun-filled paper mache sculptures (think whimsical animals) and also large wire sculptures. (Look up next time you’re in the shop.)  The main thing to remember about this show is that it showcases Wisconsin based artists only. What?! So does HATCH!🙂 http://www.artcraftwis.org/afos.html

Also this Saturday and Sunday we have Art Fair ON the Square. This year I have been chosen as one of the four jurors for this ENORMOUS art fair. Of course, we’ve already completed the task of narrowing down about 1600 applicants to 450 or so. Saturday we will be judging the artists up close and personal for artist awards including “Best of Show”! Funny thing…I haven’t received any fruit baskets yet;) Kidding. Really… This show is filled with amazing talent from around the country. http://www.mmoca.org/events/artfair/Artists.php
