Dear Friends of The Hive Gallery,
We would like to sincerely thank you for your continued support of The Hive Gallery and Artist Studios and welcome you to our 4 year anniversary show on Saturday, April 4th,2009. Attending our shows has allowed The Hive to grow in leaps and bounds this year with art sales continually rising, press across the boards from our "Deadline Tv" segment covering our Beerotica exhibit on HDTV, radio, newspaper (#1 Gallery in Los Angeles Downtown News), and Online coverage (including discoverla.com featuring The Hive as the top gallery on the artwalk for out of towners to come and visit). Plus, we have continued to develop Hive goodies. New this year has been our youtube channel, with Konovision- artist Randy Kono has covered our shows each month at www.youtube.com/thehivegallery,
our "Blog" by Julie Hershberger- covering the day to day happenings of The Hive at [link]
(also accessible on our website under "News"), Hive Movie Nights (every Wed. FREE sponsored by Old Bank DVD),
and of course our Bit'a'Honey Button packs (limited edition 1/20 button packs covering each of the featured artists every month),and Hive tshirts.
Our 4 Year Anniversary show will feature over 70 top artists exhibiting affordable art that will be added to our upcoming book entitled, "A Field Guide to the Denizens of Hiveland" (artists will present self portraits of their alter egos in a surrealist world we call "Hiveland"). In addition, specific artists from last year will be painting seens of heroism with their avatars in our themed show " Love and War in Hiveland". As well, The Hive and Non-profit Global Inheritance present, "Think Big!", with 25 artists painting/sculpting on mini recycling bins that will be traveling to the Grammy's, Coachella, The Spirit awards and more! Finally, we will be presenting some amazing featured artists including Featured Artist 1:Macsorro, Featured Artist 2: Danni Shinya Luo, Tall Wall Artist: Jehan Choo, Small Wall Artist: Lee Anne Hale, and Installation artist: Alisa Lapidus. These Hive discovered artists are some of the premiere artists in Southern California that curator Cartwright has picked to be "The Next Big Thing"and they will be sure to have strikingly beautiful, thought-provoking and affordable pieces for your collection.
*In addition, the first 15 people to come this Saturday night will recieve the Hive's Royal Jelly DVD( designed as a DVD-zine, this video is a behind the scenes look at the artists, the themed shows and Curator Cartwright hard at work. We plan on releasing a new Royal Jelly DVD in 2010 to bring you closer to what we have going on at The Hive and help you get to know the artists who work here).
Once again thank you very much and we look forward to seeing you soon,
