DESCRIPTION

Zinnia is celebrating its opening of The Funky Junque Gallery with The Bee Cause Art Show, which is designed to bring attention to the honey bee crisis and support research efforts to eradicate the mysterious Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD).  The Bee Cause will offer bee themed art in a variety of mediums, all from local artists. Included will be a piece from C.K. Wilde, a collagist who creates with currency. Wilde painstakingly cuts various shapes out of paper money from around the world to form collages with economic and political undertones and overlays.  A portion of the proceeds to benefit The North American Pollinator Protection Campaign and The Pollinator Partnership.  For more information on Zinnia and The Bee Cause, please visit www.zinnia.biz.  Also visit www.polinator.org to learn more about The Pollinator Partnership and the plight of the honey bees.

Join The Bee Cause at The Funky Junque Gallery and enjoy and evening art, wine and cheese, and live music from A Duet In Jazz.

Just added:  Co-directors Maryam Henein and George Langworthy will be screening the trailer for their feature length documentary The Vanishing of the Bees.  The film looks at Colony Collapse Disorder from an ecological, economic, political and spiritual point of view, and looks at the importance of the honey bee in our world as well as the agricultural landscape that we are living in today.  Hive Mentality Films have been granted matching funds of $150,000 from a private trust that supports sustainable agriculture. They will be selling organic honey, donated by beekeepers. All proceeds go toward the making of their film.  For more info, go to www.vanishingbees.com
