Sting! XVI: Sharp and Blurry... An Evening of Art, Music and Performance at Boston’s Beehive
September 24, 2013
The Beehive's 16th Installment in Their Continuing Art Series
WHAT: On Tuesday, September 24th, 2013, from 6:30PM - 8:30PM, The Beehive's co-owner and resident curator Jennifer Epstein and special guest curator Crystalle Lacouture will co-host the 16th installment in The Beehive's continuing art series entitled Sting! 16: Sharp and Blurry. The dynamic selection of the nine artists’ work featured in “Sharp and Blurry” addresses the big ideas of abstraction, perception, and pattern. From camera-less photographic prints to wood sculpture, porcelain wall hangings and abstract 2D paintings, each work challenges the viewer’s thoughts on perception.
The ongoing Sting! series always signifies the launch of a new art installation at The Beehive and highlights an evening of great live entertainment, food & libation specials along with amazing art! For this 16th installment, Jennifer Epstein joined forces with Crystalle Lacouture to bring together a remarkable group of artists from Boston, Western Massachusetts and New York City. Guest curator Crystalle Lacouture is a painter and printmaker working outside Boston. She graduated with a fine arts degree from Skidmore College then spent the next nine years living in New York City and working at the Lower East Side Printshop as a long-time assistant to the artists Nancy Spero and Leon Golub, and at the College Art Association. The Moth and the Firefly, a picture book she illustrated and designed, is coming out this fall in a hardback print edition. According to Lacouture, curating “Sharp & Blurry” at The Beehive has been an exciting creative project that brings together artists from the three creative hubs: Boston, NYC, and the Berkshires where she spends her time. More information about her work can be found at www.crystallelacouture.com.

Performance by Misha Piagorsky Trio:
Join us for an evening at The Beehive with great food, cool art, and a special live musical performance by the Misha Piagorsky Trio. Misha is emerging as one of the most innovative musicians on the international music scene. His unique marriage of powerful melodies with an unusual harmonic sensitivity gives his sound a deeply personal yet cosmopolitan dimension, reflecting his experience as a Russian-Jewish émigré growing up in urban America. The winner of the 2004 Thelonious Monk Composers Competition, his works were recently hailed by The Boston Globe as "a beautiful merging of the worlds of serious jazz and pop."
