November Featured Artist; JD Wolfe Pottery

Jennifer Darner Wolfe’s stoneware pottery speaks of quiet connections and modern lifestyles. She’s inspired by the Scandinavian roots of the Wisconsin she grew up in, big Wyoming skies with sagebrush dotted hills where her children were born, and the nesting comfort of those she loves. Her personal voice in clay is formed through the playfulness of the process and her love of minimalist design. Jennifer’s ceramics will be showcased at Hatch for the month of November, with an artist reception Friday, November 11th from 6-9pm. Refreshments will be served.

PICKUP ARTWORK:  February 2nd-5th.

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.

A few years ago, 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 for the month of January 2017, with an artist reception on Friday, January 13th.  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 art works….have fun creating!
