The luminous work of Ed Hatch is so connected to his subjects, so rooted in his environs, that one feels an immediate sense of place and wonder. Ed, a full-time artist for more than 20 years, centers his life at the same country crossroads where he grew up—a corner of rural Virginia where his great-grandparents opened a general store in 1912. This charming setting is now his studio. Across the street is the house where his father lived, and a stone’s throw away is his childhood home where he lives. An acute observer, Ed’s home base is that ideal spot for exploration and discovery—whether it’s the creeks nearby or the mountains further afield. He gently, yet powerfully conveys his curiosity, finding the extraordinary in the ‘ordinary.’ Above all, his appreciation for beauty in nature springs from each of his works.
