There will be a hive of activity at the Crowell Art Gallery in Newfane Vermont this March! William Dixon, a well known photographer from the Brattleboro area, has applied his skill with the camera to capture the respect he and his fellow beekeepers have for these industrious insects. For two years William traveled through the rural and urban areas of New England and New York photographing honey bees. Fascinated by the efficiency of the bee colony and respectful of the vital role the bees play in our environment, he has put together a photo exhibition which depicts the cycle of bees, the honey they produce, and the dedicated beekeepers responsible for their survival. You should expect to see photographs of bees, apiaries, and individual beekeepers working with their bees. As part of the exhibit, you will see the actual equipment used by beekeepers such as smokers, a real beehive (without bees!), extractor machine, beekeepers’ clothing, and bee products (honey, soap, candles, etc.). Expect to learn and become inspired.
Opening reception on Friday, March 6th at 5:00 PM
The Crowell Gallery is open when the library is open.
