The Giustina Gallery at The LaSells Stewart Center presents "Pre-Farm to Table: A Bee's Work" by Pacific Northwest artists. The exhibit speaks to the ecology of the farmer's helpers including bees, butterflies, hummingbirds and other such pollinators. This exhibit shows in conjunction with "As the Bee Sees: A Pollinator’s Perspective" by Susan Curington.

About Susan Curington's exhibit:

A humming vibration fills the air as black and gold honeybees dart towards ripe blossoms filled with pollen and nectar.  Pollination occurs as a result of the bee dance, and the plant growth cycle continues – as long as bees are healthy and thrive.

In her one-woman commitment to change, Susan Curington melds her passion for painting with passion for the environment in this super-size exhibit.  Creating “As The Bee Sees: A Pollinator’s Perspective” the artist focuses on food crops most vulnerable to failure in the current state of bee decline.  These large scale paintings magnify food plant flowers as if from a bee’s view as it approaches the plant to pollinate.
