For the months of October and November, Hatch Art House will be showcasing the artwork of Wisconsin artist, Nicci Martin. “Nicci Martin describes her work as “FUNctional art,” and her paintings, sculptures, accessories and mixed media creations certainly live up to that description. Whimsical, creative and colorful, Nicci’s art draws inspiration from nature and a wide range of influences, with flowers, birds, dogs and more playing out in bold, vibrant hues.”
The artist reception will be coinciding with the MMoCA Fall Gallery Night, Friday, October 4th from 5-9 pm and the show will run October 1st through November 30th.
Our May featured artists are mixed media assemblage artist, Bruce Furlin and contemporary painter, Peggy Engsberg Furlin. Let’s celebrate their works of art during MMoCA’s Spring Gallery Night!

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!

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.
During the month of December, Hatch Art House will be celebrating their 6th anniversary by showcasing all 50+ Hatch artists with gift giving art for $50 or less. As always, Hatch 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.

We’ll have sweet treats and festive drinks on hand.
