VERTIN GALLERY EXHIBITION
Calumet, Mi. - The Vertin Gallery is pleased to present, “Wintering – Into the Hive”, Encaustic and Beeswax installation by artist Melissa Hronkin and her Bees.
“Wintering Into the Hive” represents the time in winter we go inward, a time of repose and solitude, and for Hronkin , her most productive art-making time. The 2 and 3 dimensional encaustic and beeswax collage installation also represents Hronkin’s hope that this project will bring awareness to the recent plight of the honeybee and it’s surrounding industry.
