#50bees

MOST RECENT

My companion piece for #50bees finally came back from being assayed so it’s now off to be exhibited alongside its own bee! 🐝 I will post some info on my blog soon about the exhibition and links to the project.

Was asked to take part in another mini project by my sister the artist @lydianeedle as part of her ongoing #50bees #interconnectness of all things. Was asked to choose a page in a book to interact with and was drawn to the question at the top of the page. #whyarebeesfeetsosmelly ? Love it

I had an amazing day today at the #fiftybees exhibition at @acearts_somerton in Somerton. Beautiful needlefelted bees by @lydianeedle in a variety of repurposed vessels. Each type of bee had an accompanying piece of art work by other artists with a link to the original bee. I could have spent hours there. I treated myself to a Fifty Bees brochure to continue admiring her stunning work. I would love to save up for an original bee. It has inspired me to learn more about each of the bees. Thank you Lydia for an amazing exhibition and for highlighting the need for us to care for our bees. Thank you @jon.thurlow for helping me out with photos when my battery died on my camera at the most inconvenient moment! Thank you also to @somersetcool for advertising it! #50bees #somerton #gallery #needlefelt #textileart #bees #bee #nature #insect #ecology #melittology #apiary #upcycled #repurposed #vessels #vintage #powdercompact #clockmakerscontainer #compact #wool #goldleaf #art #artist #inspiration

Here's one of the music pieces created for FIFTY BEES - huge thanks to @lemonadekidmusic for coming on board and to @forgottenbee for coordinating this. What I love about this whole project is the sheer variety of media that people have worked in.
This is what he says about his piece
"Here is a video for my track 'Andrena Florea' which is my part on @forgottenbee contribution to the 'fifty Bees' exhibition"

Kitchen window views....
πŸ’œ
I'm still stuck indoors painting, sanding and decorating my butt off - but at least I can look out of my new kitchen window and see this.
πŸ¦‹πŸπŸŒΏ
My hubby can't understand why I planted this Buddleia right next to our driveway...
you have to fight and duck your way past it when you walk past the car up the drive...
but it's a magnet for bees, butterflies and a whole plethora of flying creatures in the summer - and I love how it's magenta flowers, on long branches, gracefully arch over the drive....
Plus I get to console myself that even though I can't get outside as much as I want to right now, I can watch all the buzzing activity from my kitchen sink.
😌
If you love nature and bees as much as me, which I know most of you do - you must check out @lydianeedle and her wonderful "Fifty Bees The Interconnectedness of All Things" project.
🐝
It is an amazing collaboration between her and 50 other artist and is currently exhibiting @acearts_somerton in Somerset.
If you can't get to the exhibit you can admire the fabulous needle felted bees she has created in the booklet, (see last 2 pics) like I have been (excuse my jeans - painting attire, not a new fashion! 😳) 🐝
I'm also really excited because one of these little bees, along with its companion artwork - a breathtakingly beautiful linocut by @callyconwayprints - will be winging their way over to my house at the end of the month.... just in time for me to finish decorating and start enjoying!

Many thanks to @lydianeedle, her bee artists and @acearts_somerton for a lovely evening yesterday. I always enjoy hearing people talk passionately about their work. The exhibition is on for another couple of weeks, so do go & marvel at Lydia's tiny needle felted bees! #inspiredbynature #wool #savethebees #somerton #bees #50artists #50bees #weavertravel #somerset #textiles #choosewool

Well as we were in Somerton anyway trading at the market - no excuse for not going to the 50 Bees exhibition at the gallery. Spotted an excellent piece by @paulnewmanartist! Lovely exhibition highlighting the very serious plight of the bees with beautiful artwork... @lydianeedle.
