Hatch Art

3456 Evaline
Hamtramck MI 48212

The collective that runs Hatch was formed in 2006. The next year, they were granted 501(c)3 nonprofit status, and the year after that they purchased what was once a police station. Renovation work continued through 2012, but a detention cell still retains some of its old furnishings, and is used to show artwork.

There is a classroom and a "community darkroom" somewhere in the building. The second floor consists of studio space, though at least on one occasion the forward room of the floor has been used for an art installation that went out the window onto the façade of the building.

Opening receptions are usually on Saturday evenings, then gallery hours are on Saturdays from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. There is usually a gallery talk for each exhibit, on the second or third Saturday the exhibit is up. At some point they added Wednesday gallery hours, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.; I would call ahead to make sure.

The coronavirus pandemic of 2020 has caused major disruptions to gallery scheduling. Despite efforts for an accurate listing, there may be mistakes in this listing, especially for 2020 and 2021. Hatchback XIV and Hatchback XV were turned into "virtual exhibits."
