The featured February artist for Hatch Art House is Madison ceramics artist, Aly Wheeler. Alison Wheeler grew up in the beautiful Driftless area of southwest Wisconsin. She spent most of her childhood outdoors, climbing trees and working on her parents small organic farm. So naturally, the outdoors is where a lot of her inspiration is found. Her pottery is playful, yet functional. Alison enjoys working with her hands, and finds that every piece created is an individual. She used slip trailing, carving, and hand building techniques to make each piece as unique as possible.
Aly will have her work showcased at Hatch Art House from February 1-29 with an artist reception Friday, February 12th from 6-9pm. Refreshments will be served.

The featured September artist for Hatch Art House is illustrator, Katie Gamb. Katie says, “I’m inspired by all sorts of things- fairy tales, natural history, surrealism, the outdoors, books, discomfort, that feeling you get when you’re trying to remember something important, juxtapositions, over-thinking things, and lengthy explanations.” Her work transcends you into her magical world.

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.
