Hatch Concert Number One
New Dodge Lounge, 8850 Joseph Campau, Hamtramck.
The benefit concert originally slated for last month has been rescheduled and promises to be bigger and better than preciously planned. There will be a general Hatch meeting beforehand, then we'll open the doors to the public. This will be the first of what we hope to be a monthly series of concerts featuring local bands performing original music. Admission is $10 for the general public, $5 for members. Stay tuned for details.


Saturday, March 24, noon-3pm
Ferndale Gallery Crawl
Meet at Cafe 1923 at 12 pm, we will plan our route and carpool from there. Tentative stops include the Susanne Hilberry Gallery, the Lemberg Gallery, and Paul Kotula's gallery. Hang out afterwords for conversation and a bite to eat.


MEMBERSHIP
Two new faces joined us at the last meeting:

Carlos Gonzalez is a photographer. He exhibits his work in group and solo shows and fairs locally and beyond.

John Nagridge studied printmaking at WSU. He exhibited regularly in the past, but has been artistically dormant in recent years. A Dr. Sketchy attendee since our very first show, he's started returning to his artistic roots.

BUILDING PROGRESS

Phase One of the building assessment is nearly complete. Phase Two will involve developing a workable floor plan and getting bids from contractors.
