The Esplanade Arts & Heritage Centre and The Hive Artists’ Hub Society are pleased to announce the official opening of The Hive Gallery & Boutique in the gift shop area of the Esplanade.
The new boutique is the perfect place to find unique local and regional artwork as well as handmade products such as paintings, photographs, jewelry, woodwork, one-of-a-kind clothing books on local history and more. The presence of The Hive in the Esplanade makes sense as both actively promote local artists and artisans. The consigning artists are mainly from Medicine Hat and area, and most of the sales items are created in The Hive Studios located at 569 Second Street Southeast. Hours of operation of The Hive Gallery & Boutique are Wednesday through Friday, 11 AM to 4 PM, Saturday, noon to 4 PM and during most Esplanade events.
“We are very pleased to welcome The Hive Gallery & Boutique to the Esplanade Arts & Heritage Centre. We’re certain our patrons will enjoy the access they provide to local handmade products,” says Manager of Cultural Development Carol Beatty.
The Hive is regularly seeking new consignment artists and artisans for the Gallery & Boutique. For more information, interested parties may contact The Hive at firstname.lastname@example.org and/or attend the first Annual General Meeting taking place on Friday March 29th, from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM, at The Hive Studios location (569 2nd Street Southeast).
Local Art Studio provides artists with space, opportunities, and community
The Hive Artists’ Hub Society is excited to announce a call for applications for studio artists and submissions for consignment work from artists and artisans!
Located in historic downtown Medicine Hat, The Hive is Medicine Hat’s premiere non-profit independent artists’ hub. Founded in 2011, The Hive Artists’ Hub Society offers safe and affordable studio spaces and a window into the art community for local artists of all ages and professions. The Hive has recently created additional studio spaces, and is now accepting applications for studio membership for their vibrant Second Street location. Studio members benefit from an energetic and supportive working studio environment, as well as from unique business, educational and promotional opportunities.
“The Hive is an active member within Medicine Hat’s art community, offering classes and workshops, participating in many local festivals and events, and acting as an important catalyst for the revitalization of downtown Medicine Hat,” says Stephanie Dalla-Longa, a Hive studio member.
In addition, The Hive strives to support and promote local and regional artists and artisans through the sale of artworks in The Hive Boutique, located in the Esplanade Arts and Heritage Centre on first street. With the spring season fast approaching, The Hive Boutique is currently seeking work from artists and artisans for new consignment opportunities.
