Linda Ward: Hang Loose!

Hatch Admin

Hang Loose is a collection of new work by Detroit/Hamtramck artist Linda M Ward.

Reception: Sunday, December 17th 5-7pm
music by Aran Daniels

Show runs from December 3 - December 30

Cafe 1923, 2287 Holbrook Ave, Hamtramck, MI 48212
M-F: 7am - 9pm, Sa.-Su: 10am - 7pm


"Hang Loose is a surfing term meaning relax and just go with it because you can't ride the wave if you're uptight. After college, I spent three months in Portugal working at a hostel and I learned how to surf. I gained a beautiful new insight into mother nature and my own humanity. The ocean taught me a lot about how to live and how to learn. Although the massive ocean is more powerful than we can comprehend, we can ride the wave. If it's good then ride it, if it's choppy then swim under it. If it pushes you over then paddle back out. This same idea applies to life and this theme is consistent every where in nature. Life is incredibly fragile and we are vulnerable to nature's delicate balance. Yet we and all of life - like plants - still flourish. Worries and getting hung up on what "should of happened" is useless, futile and counter-productive to what nature is teaching to those with willing ears. If something is true and right, then it will happen and nothing will be able to stop it. Have a little faith, relax, let go of the negative thinking, stick your neck out and go with whatever happens."

Hatch Art, 3456 Evaline St, Hamtramck, Michigan 48212

Seven Houses of the Holy is a collection of work spun out of Carl's graphic novel illustrations. 

"I started noting conversations I was having with women artists locally. Some of them are friends, some are professional associates. All are something far beyond talented. I was intrigued by their view of themselves. There is an unassuming grace about them. Their artistic brilliance grants us something I see as a gift to all humankind. Something sacred. These large poster pieces depict the complexities of mind, spirit, and body I have observed glowing from them."

Artist talk Saturday, November 18, 2pm

Hatch Art Gallery, 3456 Evaline St, Hamtramck, Michigan 48212

2017 Kresge Artist Fellow Jeanne Bieri's first solo exhibition at Hatch features lush and large scale fiber works never shown before.

"I was in an antiwar show three years ago and to prepare I did considerable research on war in general, In particular about WWII. My Dad was a pilot and brought back Army Blankets, those scratchy things that we took to the beach, Y Camp, and used in the barn. They never wore out and were the last things any of us kids chose when we went camping on family vacations. During my anti-war research, I began mending and piecing these blankets, an act of making them whole. A blanket is the border between wakefulness and sleep, a border between warmth and cold, sometimes between surviving and death.
I have also collected quilts and studied their patterns and stitching. The hand stitched quilts, even the raggedy pieces were too good, too personal to discard. Like the Army blankets, quilts are loaded with stories. I began to piece and combine the Army Blankets with the quilts.
All work is hand sewn, an act I cherish because each stitch is a meditation. The chain stitching is practiced on the surface of Muslim clerical garments, each stitch a prayer. With the world in such turmoil it is my profound hope that in restructuring and mending these blankets, by defining the surface with the chain stitch, the horrors of war that exist today can be kept at bay. It is my practice of healing and peace."

Einfuhlung - a solo show by Elise M. Martin

Now - November first.
Opening Reception Friday, October 6th, 6-8 pm
Cafe 1923, 2287 Holbrook Ave, Hamtramck, MI 48212
Cafe hours: M-F: 7am - 9pm, Sa.-Su: 10am - 7pm

Einfuhlung: an aesthetic term, the way of feeling oneself in a work of art, a word which through various convolutions became ‘empathy’ in English.”
Einfuhlung is a body of self portraits in which the artist, Elise Martin, manipulates her own likeness, in an attempt to find common ground with the proverbial Other. It has been said that the creation of art both encourages and is dependent upon empathetic thinking. In this collection of works, the artist maps, charts and dissects her own image in a sincere effort to create better understanding and human connection.

Beyond Invisible: Artwork of Sanda Cook

Hatch Admin

July 8-29

Opening Reception July 8, 6-8pm
Artists Talk July 22, 2pm
Hatch Art Gallery, 3456 Evaline, Hamtramck

Gallery Hours Saturdays 1-6 (July 15-29)

Art for me is a way of being alive, a way to connect myself to the mysteries of the universe, nature and magnificent human soul. Creating is my legacy, my reason to be alive. I am unafraid to try new techniques to convey my emotions...learn and evolve. I am a painter with every inch of my body and soul. In that matter, every painting I make is a powerful story of myself, and my canvas carries the story of my soul forever in time.

I hope, my viewers enjoy my art, feel the bliss, love, energy, exuberance, and joy, and that it might empower their souls.

Let's Be Realistic - Greg Carr and Jeremy Lassila

Hatch Admin

One Night Only
Friday, June 30, 2017
6pm -9pm

Millennial Musings- Caroline Del Giudice and Elise Marie Martin

Hatch Admin

One Night Only
Saturday, June 24, 2017
7pm -10pm

Millennial Musings is a one night, pop-up exhibtion featuring the works of Detroit-based artists, Caroline Del Giudice and Elise M. Martin. 

Caroline Del Giudice makes sculptures, primarily out of steel. Her series “Millennial Musings” is an observation of her generation’s means of communication, a questioning into our reactions and responses, and importantly, an honest view into her own thoughts and doubts. 

Elise Martin works in a variety of mediums, including painting, printmaking, sculpture and video- with a focus on empathy and shared human experiences. Because fantasy allows us to view the world through abstract eyes and new frames of reference, she adds a heavy dose of make-believe to everything she creates. By manipulating conventional visual and literary archetypes to tell contemporary narratives, her work plays with familiar modes of expression to engage viewers in an unexpected way.
 


Auditory Communion - Ash Griskie Performance
8 PM - 8:45 PM

Ash Griskie is a Detroit based multimedia artist who creates work exploring and speaking about the malleability of the mind and how this relates to humanity on both a cultural and personal level. Drawing influence from modern urban-shamen as well as historical, spiritual, and anthropological texts Ash hopes to reveal the divine in everyone – or at least those willing to look. 

Their ever-evolving performance, Communion, explores a combination of traditional and contemporary methods used to interact with the divine, drawing the audience into a meditative -and possibly sublime - space. This work will appear in it's latest iteration alongside Millennial Musings- Caroline Del Giudice and Elise Marie Martin in the Jail Cell in Hatch on Saturday, June 24th 2017.

8-Bit

Hatch Admin

Whitdel Arts x Hatch Art
May 13th – 27th, 2017
Reception: Saturday, May 13th, 7-10pm

May 20th and May 27th, open noon to 6 pm

Whitdel Arts is still kickin’ it, collaborating with galleries throughout the Detroit area. Their first stop is Hatch Art in Hamtramck, where they will present “8-Bit.”

Ever since Pong took the world by storm, video games have been a rapidly growing and evolving art form. Earlier videogames, limited by the technology of the time forced designers to think of new ways of rendering figures. However as the technology evolved so did the art form, with modern games limited only by the imagination of the developer. “8-Bit” examines this evolution through the lens of visual art and how style, technology and art interact and influence one another, channeling inspiration from “retro” technology into art.

Please join us for an opening reception for the artists on Saturday, May 13th.

A week before the “8-Bit” reception, on May 6th, Whitdel Arts and Hatch Art will be having a fundraising event, “Natural Art Enhancement.” All funds raised wlll be used to continue Whitdel Arts programming. See more info about that event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/175691032949833/

This event is free and open to the public. All ages welcome. For more information, please email info@whitdelarts.com.

Art in the Park will take place at Zussman Park (across from City Hall) on May 19, 2017 from 5:30 – 7:30 PM.  This is a free, family friendly event that aims to bring the community together, showcase local artists, and promote entrepreneurship.
