Mission

Hatch Street Studios is the vibrant creative hub of more than 65 visual and performing artists. Located at 88 & 90 Hatch Street in New Bedford, Massachusetts (in the city’s north end) the two grand brick and stone buildings are right in the heart of the historic Nashawena Mill District, renown for its former status as the most productive textile mills.

Today, dozens of artists create an array of diverse works in various mediums, including painting, drawing, sculpture, fine furniture making and restoration, jewelry, fiber art, photography, and various types of performance arts from music to areal arts.

The Hatch Street Artists Association, a membership based non-profit lead by a volunteer Steering Committee made up of artists, manages Open Studios, community outreach and special events. The Hatch Street Studios buildings are owned and operated by Jeff Glassman, president of Darn It! Inc.
