“Bees, Beehives and Beekeepers of New England” by William Dixon
Crowell Art Gallery at the Moore Free Library

Artist Reception Friday, March 6th, from 5 – 7 pm
23 West Street, Newfane, Vermont

There will be a hive of activity at the Crowell Art Gallery in Newfane Vermont this March! William Dixon, a well known photographer from the Brattleboro area, has applied his skill with the camera to capture the respect he and his fellow beekeepers have for these industrious insects. For two years William traveled through the rural and urban areas of New England and New York photographing honey bees. Fascinated by the efficiency of the bee colony and respectful of the vital role the bees play in our environment, he has put together a photo exhibition which depicts the cycle of bees, the honey they produce, and the dedicated beekeepers responsible for their survival. You should expect to see photographs of bees, apiaries and individual beekeepers working with their bees. You will see the actual ‘equipment” used by beekeepers such as smokers, a real beehive (without bees!), extractor machine, beekeepers clothing, and bee products (honey, soap, candles, etc.). Expect to learn and become inspired.
