    Hive Culture: Captivated by the Honeybee

    Glyndor Gallery | September 13 - December 01, 2011

    The long history of artists’ fascination with bees and beekeeping has intensified over the last decade with the growing concern about Colony Collapse Disorder. This exhibition presents painting, sculpture, photography and video that explore a multi-dimensional preoccupation with the pivotal role bees play in pollination, environmental health and our changing relationship to nature.

    Alchemy and Inquiry: Philip Taaffe, Fred Tomaselli, Terry Winters

    Glyndor Gallery | April 03 - June 19, 2011

    For these artists making art is an engulfing activity that involves immersion in natural history, science and alchemy with inspiration from arcane botanical illustrations, to birding field guides to weather charts. Observing and being in nature informs their work as much as the study of how nature is represented in different cultures and in different ages. Organized by independent curator Raymond Foye and Senior Curator, Jennifer McGregor, Alchemy and Inquiry underscores the discovery and transformation in the artists’ work and situates this dynamic energy within the experience of the garden.
