The Beehive: Sting! 4

The Beehive will soon be holding their fourth installment in their continuing Art Series, Sting! 4: Portraits. On February 18, from 6:30pm-8:30pm, The Beehive's co-owner and resident curator Jennifer Epstein will host a show focusing on portraiture, broadly and creatively defined and interpreted in various ways through different mediums.

Featured artists for the evening's event will be: Bill Armstrong -courtesy of Gallery Kayafas, Hannah Barrett - courtesy of the Howard Yezerski Gallery, Jennifer Davis - courtesy of Walker Contemporary, Jeff Perrott - courtesy of Barbara Krakow Gallery, Jane D. Marsching, Anne Siems - courtesy of Walker Contemporary, Herb Snitzer - courtesy of Gallery Kayafas, Nabila Santa-Cristo, Doug Weathersby, and Nick Rodrigues, who will be doing a social experiment/interactive piece based on “Personal Ads" wherein every drink you buy could be a chance for love.

In addition, James A. Nadeau, a Boston based art critic and curator who has programmed film and video throughout New England at venues and film festivals such as the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, The Brattle Theatre, GASP, the Rhode Island International Film Festival and the Provincetown International Film Festival, will curate a selection of video works for the opening event which will play throughout the space.

The Beehive will host live music all evening long culminating with a featured musical performance by Grammy nominee Michael Manring and Project-M. Michael Manring is a bassist and composer known for his innovative approach to the bass. Appearing on over 200 recordings, Manring has received Grammy and Bammie nominations, the Berklee School of Music Distinguished Alumni Award, two Gold Records, two Just Plain Folks awards and the Bassist of the Year award from the readers of Bass Player Magazine. Michael Manring is best known for radically expanding the limits of the fretless electric bass. This is a not-to-be-missed performance and the perfect accent to an evening of art, food and music!

There is no cover charge and there will be a cash bar.
