Hive Culture: Captivated by the Honeybee
Glyndor Gallery | September 13 – December 1, 2011

In these intricate prints of mutant bees, Rozic conveys society’s harmful effects on honeybees via artificial selection, genetic engineering and environmental modification. Beautifully framed, the prints appear as an everyday, domestic reminder of our impact on local environments, whether urban, suburban or rural. Rozic’s work is especially concerned with insect pollinators and other small creatures that are often first to show the effects of harmful environmental changes.

Michelle Rozic is an Assistant Professor of Art at Stephen F. Austin State University. Her work has been featured in exhibitions at Museum of Novosibirsk, Central Siberia, Russia; Decorative Center, Houston, TX; Columbia College, Chicago, IL; University of Hawai’i, Hilo, HI; and the Drawing Center, Cincinnati, OH. Michelle Rozic received an MFA in printmaking from Indiana University, Henry Radford Hope School of Fine Arts, and a BFA from Columbus College of Art and Design.
