This Saturday, April 4, Hive Gallery presents its 10 Year Anniversary show featruing over 200 artists!!! It’s going to be a great art party!

“The Hall of Honey” HIVELAND INSTALLATION: This installation (video, sculpture and painting) is an enormous collaboration between artist/curator Nathan Cartwright and some of his favorite artists at the Hive. Artists have painted larger than life statues to represent their avatars in a fantasy realm that has been dubbed Hiveland. The installation lies above the gallery walls and stretches about 20 foot throughout the front room of The Hive.
