ArtHatch, founded in 2004, is a volunteer-run, nonprofit art center located in downtown Escondido. This 7000-square-foot space hosts over 50 emerging artists.
The center is geared toward young artists (teen through college) and offers free supplies and studio space to budding artists in exchange for volunteer work. The point is to foster creativity in youth.

ArtHatch and Distinction Gallery are thrilled to be hosting an exhibition of one of Escondido's most beloved artists, Kelly Vivanco. This exhibit, entitled Tendrils, features Vivanco's newest creations. Runs March 10 to April 2.
Vivanco will be in attendance at the opening reception to meet, greet, and answer questions. Local artists within the ArtHatch building will have their studios open to the public as well. Complimentary wine and Stone Beer will be served to guests. Kelly Vivanco, a native to Southern California, earned her BFA from Laguna College of Art and Design. She works with a variety of media to create art with whimsy, nostalgia and a sense of child-like wonder. Vivanco draws from the real and imagined world to populate her works with a host of playful and curious characters, taking inspiration from vintage photographs, children's literature, and the oddness of her dreams.
