Barton Hatcher Fine Art Gallery Open SignOne rainy day, when the weather must not have been conducive for gardening, I discovered a usually unlit open sign illuminated in a storefront window of our office building. Behind the glass, the normally shadowed images resting on easels were now basking in the glow of the spotlight. Without hesitation, I entered the transformed office space that now houses Barton Hatcher Fine Art. I was promptly greeted by the artist himself.

I walked from room to room where the gallery walls are lined with vibrant paintings and sketches surrounding a few, select sculptures standing in the center.

Barton HatcherThis new gallery is located at 4320 Southport-Supply Road in Southport (across from Brunswick Electric). I highly recommend, come the next rainy day, that you stop by for a visit.

Barton Hatcher is a North Carolina native who was raised in Bladen County. He currently lives in Wilmington, but recently opened this gallery space in Southport. On sunny days, he operates a gardening business.
