Planning Stage: selection process for our summer show

Hatch Street Studios is honored to announce that we have been invited to show our work in a group exhibition at Van Vessem Gallery in Tiverton, Rhode Island, this summer. As a first step toward the presentation, gallerist Marika Van Vessem visited our building today to select specific pieces to be included in the show. Accompanied and advised by her friend Miriam Clifford, Marika expressed appreciation for the wide variety of media and styles represented by the artists at Hatch Street.

The exhibit will run from July 8 to August 5, with an opening reception set for July 8 from 5 to 8 p.m. Please plan to join us for our opening, or stop by the gallery while the show is on display. For information on the gallery, visit VanVessemGallery.com.

New gallery, new show!

The perfect way to spend your Friday evening: visit a brand new gallery at Hatch Street!

Denn Santoro and Helen Granger have transformed Space 306a of the Hatch Street building into the S&G Project Gallery, and their first show opens with a reception this Friday, May 5 from 5 to 8 p.m.

Their inaugural exhibit will feature multi-media assemblage artist Holly Carruthers, whose work combines found objects in an effort to "make sense of a world full of stuff." 

The artist says her "vast collection of pilfered wood, glass, metal, ephemera and accoutrement are assembled, fused, overlapped, reorganized and juxtaposed" to create work that is "surreal, dream-like, lyrical, and otherworldly."

Holly's show, titled "Junkstaposition: Upcycling Found Objects to Art," will include 22 of her assemblages. The exhibition will remain on view until June 10. 

Beyond Friday's reception, the gallery will be open by event, appointment or chance; you may email Denn at Denn@SandGProjectGallery.com or call him at 774.279.2606.

Stop by to see this intriguing art, and meet the artist and the gallerists! A group of other Hatch Street artists will have their studios open as well, including Lori Bradley, who has recently relocated from a fourth floor space to a new studio on the second floor, # 211. Also, you can visit Michael and Joan Tracey in Studio 306 (abstract and Impressionist acrylic paintings and ink drawings) and Michelle Lapointe, the Glass Connector (stained glass and abstract paintings) in Studio 407.

For more information on Holly Carruthers' work and on the S&G Project Gallery, check out their website at http://sandgprojectgallery.com/projects/html

There is ample free parking at Hatch Street Studios, and the elevator will be staffed for easy and handicapped access. See you there!

Hatch Street women reach out to upcoming artists

Women from Hatch Street Studios showed their support for the next generation by participating in Saturday's Work, Women, and Art symposium at the New Bedford Art Museum/Artworks.

This event invites junior and senior high school students who identify as female to network with adult  women professionals in the arts and learn more about real life in an artistic career. (By rough count, there were 20 professionals and 40 students in attendance.)

The day began with a presentation by guest speaker Beth McLaughlin, senior curator at the Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton, who talked about her involvement with the Pussyhat Project and the museum's upcoming exhibit on the craftivism movement. Guests then broke into small groups where panels of art professionals gave details on their career highlights and personal experiences. After more networking over a pizza lunch, students attended workshops on preparing portfolios and applying to art school.

A great time was had by all! Representatives from Hatch Street Studios included Kim Barry, Catherine Carter, Helen Granger, and Michelle Lapointe.
