Juan William Chavez: Sun Hive

When: Fri., April 7, 6-8 p.m., Fridays, Saturdays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Sundays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and Tuesdays-Thursdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through May 4 2017

The creation of art has been romanticized as a solitary pursuit, but in truth most artists have a support network of trusted friends and peers who help shape ideas, offer technical advice and inspire new directions. Juan William Chavez’s multimedia installation Sun Hive is a celebration of those other communal artists: the bees. Inspired by the seeming conflict between the bees’ collective lifestyle and the meditative practice of the lone beekeeper, Chavez’ drawings, sculptures and videos explore the symbiotic relationship of the hive dwellers and the humans who harvest their golden produce.
