May Featured Artist; Lesley Numbers And MMoCA Gallery Night!

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.

Here is a piece about Lesley’s show in the Capital Times by Lindsay Christians.

September featured artist: Emily Maryniak

September featured artist is Emily Maryniak. Emily is a Madison printmaker working mainly with relief and silkscreen prints. She says; “My favorite part of both processes is that moment when you first see the image after printing; when you peel it from the block on the press or when you first lift up the screen.  There is a little bit of mystery and magic involved in this historic process and I feel so lucky to experience it! “
Emily’s artist statement:
All of my art comes from nature.  I strive to capture the essence of the landscape, person, animal or object that I am drawing.  For me, drawing is thinking; it helps me to clarify the things I see in my environment and then allows me to share them with others.  I then make prints from my drawings which allow me to experiment with layers of color and line quality. Recently, the subject matter of my prints have been the things I appreciate around me in Madison; the the rows of houses, the boats sailing on Lake Mendota, the effect of wind on the water,  a soybean farm field with silo that has been standing for generations, and fresh produce grown in the soil from a tiny seed.  I hope that my art encourages others to notice and appreciate these same things in nature.

Emily will have her work showcased at Hatch Art House from September 1st-30th with an artist reception Friday, September 12th from 6-9pm.  Facebook event page
