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.

March Featured Artist; Rosy Hawbaker

Welcome to March! A month full of weather ups and downs, winter and spring, snow and rain, but also full of hope and sunshine, chirping birds and spring flowers!

Join us to celebrate the hopeful onset of SPRINGTIME with a fun evening at HATCH! Rosy Hawbaker is our featured artist and her artist reception is Friday, March 8th from 6-9pm. There will be adult beverages served and good times, too:)

The March featured artist is Madison designer and screen printer, Rosy Hawbaker of RosyMade Designs. Rosy has a passion for reusing and refreshing thrift store t-shirts and other items with quirky and fun screen printed designs… creating a “new” item.
Rosy says; “I figured out a way to combine my love of thrifting, art and recycling, and now I truly am in love with the work that I am producing. The majority of the work that I produce is made of recycled materials, so you can look cute, feel comfortable, and help the environment.”
Rosy will be showcasing her work at Hatch from March 1-31st.

eco 2013

We’ve worked really hard these past 2 years;) VOTE HERE …The results are announced in the July issue.

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.
