The Death of A Beekeeper Exhibit

Curatorial Statement:
In the winter or 2013, some friends came together to read a book and make art. The book they chose was Lars Gustafsson’s 1978 novel, The Death of a Beekeeper.  The Result is a show curated with thought provoking artworks that seek to dialogue with Gustafsson’s writing.  Through a variety of mediums, such as collage, painting, drawing, sewing and installation, six artists explore and wrestle with themes of self-realization, loss and doubt.
