STATEMENT
Here is some of my work through out the years! New and old! From paintings to poster art. I am a mixed up dude using mixed up media. My brain is scrambled, there for I SPLATTER paint etc., onto whatever I can find! From wood to cardboard to store bought canvas. I do not color in the lines in any aspect of my life. Never mind the Pollocks, here’s Timmy Vulgar!!!

BIO
Timmy Lampinen aka Timmy Vulgar Has been a creative force for the last 20 years, in Detroit and around the world. Playing in many bands (EPILEPTIX, CLONE DEFECTS, HUMAN EYE and Currently TIMMY'S ORGANISM!), booking shows and making all his own poster and album art.

He's also a Taco chef on the side and a 2010 Kresge Arts in Detroit Fellowship awardee. As Timmy's music strives for wild abandon and maximum impact via spaced-out sounds, his artwork opens your third eye and squeezes in a couple more.

Linden - Mnemosyne: Reflections on Memory & Myth

Hatch Admin

May 1-May 29
Cafe 1923, 2287 Holbrook St, Hamtramck, Michigan.
Reception: May 6, 6-9 p.m. & May 19, 7-9 p.m.

Hatch Art presents “Mnemosyne,” an exhibition of mixed media myth-inspired paintings by Detroit artist Linden from May 1- May 29, with a reception on Friday, May 6. Three new works and a retrospective of paintings comprise an ongoing exploration of myths reinterpreted in cityscapes.

The Reception on Friday, May 6 is from 6-9pm. Visitors will have the opportunity to meet the artist and enjoy an assortment of refreshing hors d'oeuvres, as well as the delicious offerings for sale at Cafe 1923. St. Zita will be performing, their sublime see-saw melodies from a sweetly somber viola meander atop the chiming percussive plucks of an oblong-iron-board-looking Chinese zither laced with 20-some-odd tinny toned strings.

As spring is a time of revival, "Mnemosyne" celebrates an imagined return of old mythologies to modern cityscapes. Named in honor of the forgotten goddess of time and memory, Mnemosyne, the series is a tribute to what these figures represented and contemplates those spirits present in our culture. Characters from lore, including Egyptian, Greek, and Native American, fly amongst the skyscrapers and drift through streets. These paintings celebrate the wonder of renewal, transformation, the endurance of mystery, and the hellish challenges endured.

Shaina Kasztelan: Somewhere Over the Rainbow is a Double Rainbow

Hatch Admin

Saturday, May 7, 6-10pm, Opening Reception
Saturday, May 14, 1-6pm, Gallery Hours
Saturday, May 21, 1-6pm, Gallery Hours (Art Talk 2pm)
Saturday, May 28, 1-6pm, Gallery Hours

"Somewhere Over the Rainbow is a Double Rainbow” is an introspective glimpse into the fantasy world of artist Shaina Kasztelan. Through heavily decorated painting and sculpture, Kasztelan examines her own childhood anxieties and reminisces over self medicated hallucinations she has experienced throughout her disobedient youth. The work, while playful on the surface, investigates the surreal and darkly distorted perception of reality brought on by mind altering substances, the stigma of mental illness and the inevitable effects on a loner teenager. Self described as “Lisa Frank on acid”, this exhibition employs kitsch pop art memorabilia to resurrect 90s girl nostalgia in a psychedelic haze which desires to illuminate the pleasures and fears of recreational drug use in a culture where things are thoughtlessly consumed and quickly disposed of. Products, relationships, social media- Kasztelan aims to highlight a contemporary generation whose happiness is shaped by instant gratification, always looking for the next best thing.

BIO:
Shaina Kasztelan (b. 1990, Sterling Heights, MI) is an American artist living and working in Detroit, MI. She received her BFA from the College for Creative Studies in 2012 with a concentration in painting and a minor in ceramics. Past exhibitions have taken place at the Detroit Institute of Arts, Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, the Detroit Artists Market and the Red Bull House of Art.

CRIPPLED

Hatch Admin

Tuesday, March 1st at 6 PM - 9 PM
Hatch Art Center, 3456 Evaline St. Hamtramck, MI 48212

CRIPPLED is the culmination of the thesis work of Angelina Davis as she comes to a close of her undergraduate degree at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan. The work revolves around the intersection of memory, neuropathy, and the concomitant or sometimes subsequent harm that can be inflicted upon the body due to the misfiring or malfunction of the nervous system. The work is a personal exploration of a long awaited and unfulfilling diagnosis of Tension Myoneural Syndrome, which results in the perception of chronic pain, believed to be caused by a misfiring in the brain, and heavily induced by the repression of memory.

Angelina Davis has archived photos from her childhood that are lost from her memory into mirages of material reality, perception, and experience in order to investigate the every-day consequences of her invisible illness.

CRIPPLED is a selection of this archive, and will be hosted by Hatch Gallery in Hamtramck, Michigan on March 1st, 2016. Reception runs from 6 PM-9 PM.

Hands On at Hatch Art: Getting Started in Lightroom

Photoshop is great, but for photographers Lightroom is easier, effective, and more efficient. The only tricky part is getting started the right way. This workshop will show you the best method to set up Lightroom for yourself, and introduce you to some of the most important functions it offers.

Don't be afraid of new software! Lightroom will organize your thousands of images and allow you to do many of the same edits you do in Photoshop and other programs.

I will be demonstrating live on my own computer for all to see. You do not have to have it on a laptop to take the class-- simply watch, record, take notes, or soak it all in as I do my best to make this both informative and entertaining.

I currently teach photography with Lightroom at Lawrence Tech and Oakland Community College, as well as other workshops at Grosse Point Art Center. I'm an artist, business owner, founder of Hatch, and an academic. See my work at schneida.com.
