Anthony Brazeau: Another Word For Trash

Hatch Admin

IMG_2575.jpg

Now through November
Café 1923, 2287 Holbrook Ave., Hamtramck, MI 48212

I've worked as a janitor at an art center for five years - throwing out garbage, repetitively painting gallery walls white, sweeping up dirt, and cleaning toilets. I've seen different groups of people paint the same flower over and over and over again and then leave those paintings behind, adding them to the growing collection of discarded items.

These works are made from the leftovers of the art center made from things forgotten. They are culminations of repetitive physical acts and strict temporal limitations. The labor involved in their making can be equated to that of a minimum wage job, one works a certain amount of hours to obtain a sum that is deemed equitable. Each of these pieces takers nine hours - I begin making them at 8, take a lunch, and am done at 5.

Somewhere Else: Four Artists Using Abstraction

Hatch Admin

somewhereelse.jpg

Exhibition October 5 – 26, 2019

Hatch Art Gallery, 3456 Evaline, Hamtramck, MI
Gallery Hours Wednesdays (6pm-9pm) and Saturdays (noon-6pm)

Reception Saturday, October 5, 2019, 6-9 pm
Artist Talk Saturday, October 19, 2pm

Abstract art is as difficult to define as art itself. Commonly, abstracts use color, form, and texture in place of identifiable subjects, although often to the artist it is representational. Filled with emotion, purpose, and meaning, these artists create a broad range of visual delights. Jide Aje and Judith Feist work in mixed media, while Sanda Cook and Sam Kthar paint.

An artist talk with all four artists will be Saturday, October 19th at 2pm.

Drop-in collage workshop Saturday, September 21, 1-5 pm.

Domestic Wilds exhibits new work by Teresa Petersen and Anne Harrington Hughes. Petersen and Hughes explore the ways in which nature asserts itself in domestic spaces through collage, printmaking, assemblage, and installation. The artists employ images of everyday experience combined in compelling ways to create narratives that conjure the fantastic, mysterious, and unexplainable. Petersen and Hughes have worked together over several years in ways that aim to reconcile their personal lives with their art, and a desire to draw in the viewer to share in that quest.

Hatch Art Gallery,
3456 Evaline, Hamtramck, MI

Gallery Hours Wednesdays (6pm-9pm) and Saturdays (noon-6pm)

Opening reception Saturday, July, 6, 2019, 6-9 pm

Artist talk & workshop Wednesday, July 17, 6-9 pm

A visionary art exhibit inspired by dreams, stories, traditions & memories featuring more than 30 works by artists Peter Bernal, Alana Carlson, John Finazzo, Linden Godlove, Anita Schmaltz & John Wood.

Personal Mythologies is a multimedia exhibition of Metro Detroit artists that invites participants to enter a space of invented tales, surreal imaginings, and fantastic places. Some works are drawing on ancient characters and symbols, and others are newly imagined tales. All connect with the artists’ own narratives, yet guests may find their own stories reflected in the artists’ work. “Art has the ability to cross barriers of time, place, and language,” says John Wood. “My hope is that my artwork can create a bridge connecting people and ideas.”

Opening reception Saturday, November 3 6pm – 10pm

People have been turning clay into art for all of our known history. It is both an ancient practice and a contemporary art form. Dezman explores the qualities of ceramics, using scraps and flaws to her advantage. She breaks down the elements of clay and reforms them in visually appealing ways that no longer appear to be traditional ceramic art.

This is Dezman's 6th solo show since graduating with her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2014.
