Bees in Art, the new sister website to The Land Gallery has been launched

The past few months have been busy ones for Andrew and Debbie, curators of The Land Gallery. Andrew is a keen beekeeper and due to this passion, he has developed a motif to his work which centres on bees and other Hymenoptera.

Consequently, we have been working on a sister website to The Land Gallery which is dedicated to the subject of bees in art. The new site has been online for a few weeks already, but now that we have been able to add work from several leading artists, we are ready to announce it here at The Land Gallery. You will notice the Bees in Art logo on many of our pages, and this can be clicked to take you to the new site whenever you want (and the reverse is true for The Land Gallery when visiting Bees in Art).

So, if you would like to purchase some bee related art or read about and follow the activities of a beekeeper, please pop over to Bees in Art, the first online art gallery dedicated to the humble bee!

Tyzack family successful in recent Guardian newspaper and Keith Tyson offer

The Tyzack family proved successful in Tuesday’s offer from the UK’s Guardian newspaper and the 2002 Turner Prize-winning artist, Keith Tyson, of 5,000 free downloads of his bar-code-like “History Paintings”. Both Andrew and his father, Chris, managed to successfully win one copy each, with the ‘digital’ paintings linked to their location on the planet - from the Guardian article:

“Each work will consist of a unique randomly generated sequence of vertical stripes in red, black and green - the colours of the roulette wheel. Every image will have its own title, based on the geographical location of the user, and a serial number.”

The following are cropped images taken from the Tyzack two:
