Painter and Sculptor Barton Hatcher to Speak to the Art League of Leland
The Art League of Leland (ALL) invites artists and art enthusiasts to its Thursday, January 9, 2020, meeting with artist Barton Hatcher as its featured guest speaker. Hatcher will discuss his eclectic, bold and colorful paintings and mixed-media sculptures. The meeting, which is free and open to the public, will take place from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM at the Leland Cultural Arts Center, 1212 Magnolia Village Way, Leland, NC 28451.
Self-taught artist Barton Hatcher describes his distinctive paintings as contemporary abstracts. His sculptures, created from found objects, may include wood, metal, and glass. An avid gardener and fly fisherman, Hatcher draws inspiration for many of his eclectic artistic designs from nature itself. His work has been showcased in several North Carolina galleries and may be found in private art collections. Hatcher also owns and operates Gardens by Barton, a landscape design business in Wilmington, NC, where he uses his artistic talents to create customized garden designs.
