Bee Kingdom: Iconoclasts in Glass
JUNE 7 - SEPTEMBER 28, 2014
This adventurous collective, which operates out of a backyard in northwest Calgary, was conceived by three graduates of the Alberta College of Art and Design glass program: Ryan Fairweather, Phillip Bandura and Timothy Belliveau. They chose the name “Bee Kingdom” for both their communal approach to art and the similarity between hot glass in its liquid form and honey.
The Bees have created quite the buzz since their inception with their whimsical glass forms that are loaded with commentary on subjects as diverse as environmental issues, sexual identity and pop culture.
