Bee Art

 

Mural at Farmers Market


Located within the Gastonia Farmers Market (410 E. Long Avenue), inspiration for this mural came from the BEEtopia Zen-Tangle design (a form of meditative doodling that has abstract patterns, or tangles) that had been purchased for Keep Gastonia Beautiful. BEEtopia design is optimal for adaptation to a large, vibrant wall mural. The following artists generously volunteered their time and talents for this collaborative project: Tiz Johnston, Suzanne Simmons, Lisa Livengood, & Pamela Underwood.

“Essence of honey bee and the colorful flight gathering pollen was a natural choice for the color pallet. Nature sustains all life on earth while, at the same time, providing visual beauty for all to enjoy.” – Pamela Underwood, Artist

With an unBEElievably generous grant from the Gaston Community Foundation, and support by Keep Gastonia Beautiful staff, the artists were able to create this work of art that captures a segment of nature.
