The EcoArt Works in “What’s the Buzz All About?” Show

EcoArt is a hybrid art-science practice that aims to rectify ecological damage. Come hear about and discuss the five EcoArt works in the “What’s All the Buzz About?” exhibition, closing August 11th. The discussion will address how five artists are seeking to change the alarming decline in bee populations world wide with imagination, scientific expertise and humorous activism. Come learn about a beehive backpack shaped like a book and what it is used to do; ceramic sculptures that add shelter to bee-friendly plantings of native Florida trees and plants in parks and back yards; a massive statewide EcoArt project that mobilizes artists, schools, libraries, public institutions and YOU, visitors to the “What’s All the Buzz About?” show, to replenish the presence of 500 key wildflowers, of benefit to wild bees.
The flowers, now endangered, were seen in profusion when Europeans first stepped onto Florida’s land hundreds of years ago. Two transformative projects that are bringing bees and butterflies back to highly urbanized and unlikely sites. And, a wild and colorful performance spectacle “exorcising” the RoboBee, currently in design at Harvard, under contract with the Defense Department. Great opportunity as well to browse the show’s bee-specific paintings, drawings, collages and jewelry for sale, with 15% going to support Palm Beach County’s BeeKeepers Association.

Invite You to a Sharing Meeting
at the Brewhouse Gallery
Monday, August 11th 7 – 9 pm
720 Park Avenue
Lake Park, FL
The Artists of Palm Beach County will hold its monthly artists’ gathering on Monday, August 11, 2014 from 7:00 – 9:00 pm at the new and already popular, Brewhouse Gallery, 720 Park Avenue in Lake Park. The Brewhouse Gallery, the creation of talented artist A.J. Brockman, provides a destination for all who enjoy art, coffee, craft beers, and wine, as well as live music.
Brockman, a 25 year-old digital artist, and his partner Bobby Hodson, dreamed of establishing a place that would be a catalyst for the Lake Park art district. Not a traditional art gallery – though the walls are covered with artworks – their establishment welcomes people to enjoy playing board games, reading, sketching and web-browsing (free Wi-Fi) in addition to sipping coffee and beer, and viewing the art. If you haven’t already visited this unique coffee house/lounge art gallery, this is the perfect opportunity.
Mark your calendars for August 11th. Admission is free for members of APBC and the general public is invited to attend the event for a $5.00 admission fee. Payment will be collected at the door and will be applied towards the membership fee, if one wishes to join at the meeting. Artists are encouraged to bring a work of art for sharing/critique as well as finger food to share with the group (NO ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES PLEASE). The Brewhouse Gallery is open daily from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. and by appointment only on Mondays. For more information or directions please call 561-469-8930.
