On Saturday October 8th the fantastic “Fishmobile” will be visiting the Le Hatchery Galleria while we host Phillips Wharf Environmental Center. Bring the whole family and have fun. Touch or hold Horseshoe Crabs and Diamondback Terrapins. Learn how an oyster reef is created, what else lives there, how oysters help the Bay. Explore the watershed, learn properties of water, water cycles, river names, and play “Who Polluted the Bay.” Discover distributions, migration, and adaptations of fish. To see how much the children learned, they will be able to sit down and draw a fish, a crab, or whatever they think of. Art supplies will be supplied by Calico Gallery from their large inventory of children’s art supplies that are always available for your purchase.

Sign up now for some early September Mosaic classes being scheduled at Le Hatchery Galleria. Join local mosaic artist, Lisa Skibenes, and create your own unique piece of mosaic art!
Mosaic, the art of creating images with tessarae, small pieces of stained glass, pebbles, stone, smalti, and marble, etc. have been discovered among the Greeks and Romans as early as the 4th century BC. This ancient art has been taken to new heights by many acclaimed mosaicists.
This class, which meets Thursday and Friday evenings, September 8th and 9th from 6:30PM to 9:30PM and Sunday September 11th from noon to 4 pm at Le Hatchery Galleria will teach you the basics of cutting glass with nippers and a scoring tool, andamento (the flow of your tessarae), color theory, adhesives, grouting, and design. You will be creating a butterfly mosaic that will be suitable for either indoor or outdoor display.
The $200 cost of the class will provide everything you need to complete your mosaic, including your own Leponitt nippers and a set of Skeew picks, allowing you to continue you mosaic journey on your own or at future classes.
Pre-registration and $100 non-refundable deposit is required. Stop into Le Hatchery Galleria or call 914-224-6212 to sign up. Class space is limited so please sign up early!
Native New Yorker Lisa Skibenes uses her affinity for sensuality and visual pleasure to create innovative, tactile art. Painstakingly hand cutting and grinding glass into perfect shapes, Lisa repurposes vintage windows and other substrates into dynamic works of art bursting with color.

Coming up, the “Wednesday Morning Artists” (WMA) will be our “Friends” for the month of August. The WMA is a very diverse group of artists, and artisans that use watercolor, oils, acrylic, photography, glass, metal and weaving material to create their unique one-of-a-kind art. Many of the WMA already display and/or create their art in the many galleries at Calico Gallery at Le Hatchery Galleria. Their art/creations are very reasonably priced. Please come and check out the works of the Wednesday Morning Artists in our “Hatch” Gallery. WMA will also be featured at our August 20 reception.
August will be our month to celebrate the wonderful works done by our resident artisans. Collectively, our “glass”, “metal” and “weaving” artisans will be our “Featured Artists” for the month of August. Check out their wonderful creations in the lobby, and check out their studios in the “Hatch” and “Brooder” galleries.
