As the southern hemisphere hibernates (and hopefully re-hydrate) a swarm of contemporary South African artists are working towards an art event for early spring. Their collective aim is to create awareness of the desperate state and decline of the bee population and the potential devastating impact on the environment and agriculture in South Africa and the rest of the world.
The art “invasion” is planned as a creative way to shine a light on this serious problem but also celebrate the art community’s ability to “cross pollinate” traditional, contemporary and social art in many mediums.
The exhibition will have various components, including painting, print making, sculpture, collage, assemblage, ceramics and
alternative medium sculpture and installation art.
