I've never seen anything like this, but...I like it! Keeping things interesting down on Broad Street...that's the exhibitions committee all right.Bee-fore.

Nancy in her bee gear.
Dave: Nighty-night. Bees: BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!
New home for the beezers and a happy ending. Does art-bee honey taste different than non-art-bee honey? Stay tuned...
And thanks to Joe Essid for the photos!

Just got an exciting email from Aimee~
"1708 Gallery has not one but two of its shows reviewed in the July/August issue of Art Papers!
Pg. 70 – Ledelle Moe and Greg Streak: Drift
Pg. 71 –Gareth Morris Jones: Born Lost
This is definitely an issue not to be missed. Try to get your hands on 1708’s national fame! Congratulations to the artists and to all involved in making these spectacular exhibitions happen."
This is great!!!!!
