As many of you know, here at Hatch Art House we have a few goals that we strive for on a daily basis.

When you buy something from Hatch, you know it’s being produced locally. Our rule is that you must reside in Wisconsin to be a Hatch artist; although, the majority of our 75+ artists live in the Madison area.  We have an emphasis on repurposing, upcycling and recycling…  if we can keep things out of the landfill and give it a new life in art, we’ve done a great thing. We strive to offer something for everyone at affordable prices in a casual and creatively charged environment.

In early 2012, Hatch embarked into the world of hosting art shows! Hatch being a small space, a SMALL WORKS art show seemed appropriate; thus EcoSquared Art Show was born. Also, an upcycling theme along with affordable pricing to continue with the Hatch emphasis.  The show will run January 8th through February 28th, 2019, with an artist reception on Friday, January 11th.  The deadline for entry is December 21st. The rest of the dates to know are listed on the calendar above and on the forms below.

The guidelines are listed in the printable forms, which I encourage you to pass on to anyone you think would be interested.  This show will be juried mainly to make sure all entries fit into the scheme and follow the guidelines. As well as being a painter and dabbler of many other art forms, I was also a juror for the 2013 Art Fair Off the Square,  2012 MMoCA Art Fair on the Square and the MMoCA 2011 Holiday Art Fair.

If you’ve submitted your artwork to Hatch in the past, I encourage you to enter this show. This is your opportunity to be a Hatch artist! Small SQUARE artworks….have fun creating!

August Featured Artist: Photographer Bethany Helzer

The August featured artist is photographer, Bethany Helzer. Bethany grew up in the Detroit area, finding herself intrigued by the beautiful architecture of a city in neglect, and wanted to document this “urban decay” before it disappeared. Now living in Madison, her focus has shifted to our city’s new and old architecture as well as the nature that surrounds us.

Bethany will have her work showcased at Hatch Art House from August 1st-31st with an artist reception Friday, August 9th from 6-9pm. Refreshments and good times will be served. Facebook Event Page
