January 2013 Happenings…including the EcoSquared Art Show!

2012 was kind of a big year for Hatch. I learned a ton and we grew a lot! We now have 43 artists, up from the 20 we started with back in December of 2010.  Twice as many artists means twice as much work…so thank you for being patient with me while I figure out how to achieve a nice balance (and maybe get a bit more help!). I am THRILLED with the way Hatch is growing! So many people are embracing the ‘shop local’ culture and are happy to have us here on Willy Street.  That being said; I THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for supporting Hatch and every artist in the shop!

To kick off the year 2013 we are embarking into the world of themed art shows! For the months of January and February you can stop in and see our small works show; EcoSquared. Artists were given the opportunity to create work between 6″ square to 8″ square while incorporating upcycled materials.  All priced between $50-$100. The results are fun, creative and very inspiring! All are available for purchase but we do appreciate pick-up near the end of the show. We’ll be having our opening reception for EcoSquared,  Friday, January 11th from 6-9pm. The artists will be available to talk with and we’ll have refreshments on hand. Please join us!

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.

Acrylic painting with incorporated old maps on a cabinet door. Artist Tammy Schreiter.

“Spring”. Found objects (silk flowers, fabric, rope) on upcycled canvas and frame. Artist Beth Heeney.

Fall Gallery Night Celebrations

The featured artist for October is linocut artist, Juliet Darken… an illustrator, storyteller, designer, fine artist, and Madison native. She creates whimsical, yet sophisticated pieces with traditional relief printmaking techniques, sometimes with small additions of collage and graphite. This involves a complex process of reversing the original design, carving, and printing each color as a separate layer. In her opinion, the most important thing for people to learn is how to communicate, and she enjoys adding her personal visual language to the human conversation.
Juliet’s artwork will be showcased from October 1-31st. The artist reception coincides with the MMoCA citywide Gallery Night, October 5 from 5-9pm. Refreshments will be served.

September Featured Artist: Madison Potter, Jenny Blasen

 

The September featured artist is Madison Potter, Jenny Blasen. Jenny was first introduced to ceramics in college as an exchange student in Japan. Many nights and weekends in community studio spaces over the years have led to her own studio in her home where she works on her pottery whenever possible.
Jenny says; “I make functional pieces for everyday use. I use texture in my work and found objects, including lace, fabric, stamps, and leaves. Some of my most popular items are my yarn bowls and hand built plates.”
Jenny will be showcasing her work at Hatch from September 1-31st with an artist reception on Friday, September 14th, 6-9pm. Good times and refreshments will be served.
