BUZZ :: June 23 - July 16, 2017
Lexington’s gallery blink creates a BUZZ!
In more ways than one, gallery blink presents an art show that creates a ‘buzz’ this summer. This exhibition features artwork that relates in some way (however loosely) to the life, times, influence and habitat of the honeybee. Visitors can expect anything from up close florals and fields of lavender, to pollen sacs and honey sandwiches! Also on view is artwork made with beeswax - lots of encaustic work, some batiks and a few cold wax paintings. The subject matter of the beeswax images may be realistic or abstract, and will not necessarily relate to bees. Visitors can enjoy over 200 works of art from more than 30 artists. The gallery is located at 1963 Massachusetts Avenue, Lexington, MA 02421.
As always, the work shown will be diverse and displayed in gallery blink’s signature style, the viewing of which has also been creating somewhat of a ‘buzz’, and is becoming known as an ‘art experience’.
As one visitor aptly described it:
"Culture sometimes treats art as ‘separate’ but this is much more integrated, and in this gallery/home setting feels nurturing.”
“Seeing the artwork hung ‘in context’ like this makes the viewing experience so much more meaningful. The work is technically great, but the focus here is so much more on the heart and soul of what the art is about.”
And still another:
“Always a lively show that encourages interaction with the work. Wit and humor abound. The beautiful setting combined with the way the gallery is curated makes this a magical experience.”
Come and see what all the buzz is about.
This pop-up show will run from June 23 – July 16.
All are welcome to an Opening Celebration on Friday, June 23 from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm. More information about the show and the gallery can be found at galleryblink.com.
