Saturday is the 4 year... Come celebrate with us!

Wednesday Night is Movie Night

We are going to try and play Deadman again ... since no one showed up last time. Maybe no one wants to watch it (I find that hard to believe) or maybe everyone has seen this one... either way it is will be worth it.



and if you show up you will be a sneak peak at the new show that is going up RIGHT NOW, as I write this, beautiful works of art are being hung on our gallery walls... sigh

"The eagle never lost so much time as when he submitted to learn from the crow."

It's Wednesday again and that means it movie night at The Hive.

Showing 'Deadman' by Jim Jarmusch

The movie is amazing. Black & White, Neil Young was in charge of the music, johnny depp as william blake, and Iggy Pop makes a cameo dressed a woman.

Show Tonight! Saturday 8 PM

Just wanted to remind you of the opening tonight and give you some highlights...

Bee Here Now!

Christopher Ulrich Has A Story For U.

Some of you may remember Ulrich. He's shown at The Hive on a number of occasions. Last month he entered a piece entitle, " I Love U" and this month he's got his own wall! There were a number of occurrences that brought this about and Ulrich has put together a story in the notebook with a heart on it that hangs from the belt of the rat. The idea is to read the tale and then explore the wall in appropriate succession. It's a dark tale for what has turned into a dark arts showcase.

Come down Saturday night at 8 PM to enjoy the darkness with us.

'Demoneater' Key Details

Here you can see some of the details Ulrich has painted on his wall. Though you would be lucky to own just one one of his pieces... this wall has a story to tell and the 'keys' are an essential part a of the 'Demoneater' philosophy.

New Installation by Jason Hadley

I'm pretty sure these are all lightboxes or use electricity to illuminate in some way. The face with the bulls-eye and knife is entitle 'father' and to the left is 'mother'.

Mosaic Puzzle by Corey Smith

Artist: Corey Smith
(available for commissions)

This piece is amazing and of gigantic proportions. Photographs simply do not do it justice, but I simply had to post some. The bottom photo is just a small section of the left corner. It's made of thousands of puzzle pieces fastened and overlapping each other to make a mosaic.

New Spaces: We're shaking things up here at The Hive...

... with a vortex for starters!

This space belongs to Jimmy Bleyer and Amanda Sage; both members of 'The Temple of Visions' show.

There's been a lot of new developments at The Hive this month. We got some new resident artists and they've been working hard all week to get their booths ready.
