December Happenings

During the month of December, Hatch Art House will be celebrating their 2nd anniversary by showcasing all 40 Hatch artists with gift giving art for $40 or less. As always, Hatch only represents Wisconsin based artists with the majority from the Madison area. Hatch also has an emphasis on upcycled and recycled material both in artwork and in the shop itself. The artist reception will be Friday, December 14th from 6-9pm. Many local artists will be in attendance to talk about their work. We’ll have sweet treats and festive drinks on hand.
This holiday season, remember to shop small businesses and stay local. Hatch features ONLY Wisconsin artists, 95% of which are from the Madison area. When you buy from Hatch you know you are buying local.

Upcycled Art at Hatch

As many of you know, the deadline to the EcoSquared Art Show is November 21st. I thought I’d share with you some of the artwork in the gallery that incorporates upcycled materials. Upcycled is still a fairly new term, you can learn more here. And remember, the main criteria for Ecosquared is to use something upcycled, have it measure between 6″ square to 8″ square, and have it ready to hang on the wall. We are so excited to see what all of you creative Wisconsinites come up with! Please feel free to leave questions or concerns here in the comment section.

Reclaimed steel and spray paint. “Birds on a Wire” artist Liv Aanrud.

Acrylic house paint on upcycled canvas. “Yellow Leaves” artist Lynn Lee.

Diorama made from a drawer, newspaper and found objects. Artist Beth Heeney.

 

Wall sculpture made with reclaimed wood, found objects (saw blade, nails, drain cover) and wire. Artist Bryan Richgels.

Specialized Art…

A couple of weeks ago, I finally was able to deliver this custom built mirror. It was quite a process but I love a challenge! First, I went to the buyer’s house and checked out the space they had in mind for the mirror. After we decided on a size, 3’x4′, I went to the Habitat for Humanity Restore and after numerous trips and lots of digging, I found some wood house siding that I hoped was wide enough for the frame. I’m pretty handy, but not as much as my friend Bryan who has skills with a saw that I will never have. He put together a fantastic frame…better than I imagined. After many more weeks of painting it was time for the placement of the mirror. Again, Bryan helped out. Cutting super thick glass is not easy! Cracks can easily occur and he broke a couple large pieces. Ugh.  After a lucky find at the thrift store… one more try and he cut the mirror perfectly! I was a little nervous since I had promised delivery the following morning…

I forgot to mention that one of the buyer’s (Susan and David) requests was for maps to be incorporated in the painting of their favorite places. It is definitely THEIR piece! I wish I had a photo of the mirror installed…hopefully soon.

If you’d like a custom piece of art, let me know! As for now, I have started a painting on a wood headboard I found on the curb. One man’s trash is a future work of art!

Frame done, before mirror.

Sarah Hemm: Alternative Embroidery

This is NOT your grandma’s embroidery! Sarah Hemm has a style that is unique, hip, interesting…makes you wonder what the heck she was thinking while, with no pattern- all free style, stitches away on the hoop. Every piece deserves a closer look. Make sure to stop by her artist reception Friday, March 9th, 6-9 for your viewing pleasure! Beer and wine will be served:)

February Featured Artist, Liv Aanrud

The Hatch Art House February featured artist is Liv Aanrud. Her work will be showcased all month long with an opening reception Friday, February 10th from 6-9pm. Refreshments will be served.
Liv Aanrud creates sculptures, wall hangings and functional work using scrap metal, a piece of something that changes form once again. Liv explains; “I like that metal work can look old and new, and changes with the shifting daylight. I use imagery that draws from the natural world in the hopes that my art will be half as interesting as looking out of the window.”

Artist, Liv Aanrud
