'Farewell to Bees'
Please note, this event has expired.
Join us in August at Art 111 Gallery & Art Supply where many local artists and members of The Unsteady Hand will visually explore the theme of bee extinction.
This show features the 2019 Peak Arts Prize winner for Individual Artist, Thom Phelps’ sculpture, “A Farewell to Bees” and many other artists from the Pikes Peak region as well as members of The Unsteady Hand, an artist collective.
Artists will explore the ubiquitous and unnerving imagery of bee die-off and have the freedom to delve into causes, importance, hoax or not, impact on civilization, culprits, other pollinators, or how the bee has been historically depicted.
Then, on August 16th (the third Friday) at Art 111 Gallery & Art Supply there will be an artist talk and artist acknowledgment open to the public, where attendees are encouraged to discuss the theme of the show, its imagery and how it makes them feel.
Guests are welcome to participate in the dialogue.
The Peak Arts Prize is a program of the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region, funded by The Fund for the Arts, a fund of the Pikes Peak Community Foundation.
