This installment welcomes 13 artists selected by the Boston Contemporary Group (BCG) whose members include Camilo Alvarez of Samsøn, Anthony Greaney of the Anthony Greaney Gallery, Russell LaMontagne of LaMontagne Gallery and Steven Zevitas of the Steven Zevitas Gallery. BCG was formed to support an environment in Boston for critically relevant contemporary art. BCG will use this exhibit at The Beehive to bring awareness to their group as well as to launch their new website hosted by Gallerist, the event’s sponsor, a New York based company revolutionizing the way people interact with art.
The ongoing Sting! series always signifies the launch of a new art installation at The Beehive and highlights an evening of great live entertainment, great food & libations along with amazing art! For this 12th installment, Jennifer Epstein has invited the Boston Contemporary Group to curate a show that highlights a remarkable group of artists (most of whom are working here in Boston or who otherwise have connections to the city) as well as brings attention to a dedicated group of gallerists in Boston who possess a deep well of knowledge and expertise just waiting to be tapped. Visitors to The Beehive will be witness to the broad diversity of mediums, materials and techniques presented by this group of artists, including works on paper, works made with film on linen, drawings, photography, paintings, video animation, performance and even a disco ball made from laser cut disco records.
