HONEY is a dynamic, juried exhibition embodying and celebrating the role of the honeybee. In light of the international Colony Collapse Disorder crisis and global concerns over war, economic collapse and a worldwide food shortage, the fate of the honeybee mirrors the fate of humanity. Philosopher Rudolf Steiner noted the bees as an indicator species in developing his ideas on biodynamic farming and caring for the earth. This call for entries seeks artwork related to these issues and honoring the majestic apis mellifera.
Artists whose work has been juried into the exhibition are: Heather Beck, Barbara Blaisdell, Aleta Braun, Ben Bridgers, Katy Cassell, Megan Clark, Kelly Jean Conroy, Laurie Corral, Desiree DeMars, Gina Dill, Christine Dougherty, Mary Early, Bob Ebendorf, Kristen Egan, Jane Wells Harrison, Sarah K. Hooper, Melissa Hronkin, June Jasen, Rachel Kauff, Joyce Watkins King, Timothy Lazure, Jenny Lynn McNutt, Jeff Millikan, Greg Patch, Betsy Peters, Christine Reising, Suzanne Sawyer, Pat Spainhour, Elizabeth Staiger, Melvin S. Stanforth, Rebecca Stirner, Isaac Talley, Lauren Thiele, and Robin Wise.
