April Featured Artist: Jenie Gao

April featured artist, Jenie Gao is a multi-medium artist. This month she will be showcasing her paintings and prints.
“Jenie Gao is an artist and printmaker specializing in the mediums of woodcut and ink drawing. Her work focuses on the interdependence of preservation and change. She discusses how the objects we choose to keep and places and images we associate ourselves with act as anchor points in our families, friendships, and relationships. The desire to anchor ourselves in familiarity contrasts with the need to grow amidst inevitably variable surroundings. At the same time, a grounded sense of identity enables further growth, by creating opportunities to connect with others and change along with our environment.”
Jenie’s artwork will be showcased at Hatch April 1st-30th with an artist reception Friday, April 14th 6-9pm. Refreshments will be served.

May Featured Artist: Helen Mary Beck & Gallery Night

 

The Hatch Art House featured artist for May is Helen Mary Beck. She is a mixed media artist working with watercolor on canvas highlighted with embroidery. With a background in art therapy, Helen is passionate about the importance of story-telling in art making. With her unique technique of combining watercolor with embroidery, Helen Mary Beck creates textured paintings that capture the imagery within science, beauty and nature. Beck’s contrast of the unpredictability of her bold watercolor on canvas combined with the meticulous detail of her embroidered patterns gives her work a striking individuality.
Helen’s work will be showcased May 1st-31st with her artist reception coinciding with MMoCA’s Gallery Night, May 2nd from 5-9pm.

Orange.

A cross between red and yellow, orange seems to be a color associated with fall. The turning of the leaves, pumpkins, or in my case…orange construction cones. With the street construction days from completion, we have a lot to look forward to here at Hatch. October is filled to the brim with good stuff… MMOCA’s Gallery Night, Habitat for Humanity ReStore Salvage Art Show, and perhaps the biggest event of all, THE END OF WILLY STREET CONSTRUCTION! So please stop by and visit us! Remember, we do have a parking lot behind the building off of Baldwin Street.
