Late: Beekeeping Workshop with Honeyguts Apiary

Gallery5 welcomes Honeyguts Apiary for a two part pay-what-you-can workshop series on introductory beekeeping! Suggested donation $5-10, no one turned away for lack of funds. Come learn about why bees are so important, and how you can start working with bees yourself!

Part 1: Sunday November 23, 6pm
Part 2: Sunday December 7, 6pm

Classes are designed so that participants can attend one or both.

Do ya like to eat? Did ya know that honeybees are responsible for pollinating 1/3 of everything consume? Which native plants can we plant to provide bees with enough forage to survive? How can you get involved with beekeeping communities in your area? What equipment do you need to get started? Where can you even get bees? Come ask questions with other “newbees” & learn how to become a Beekeeper – even with little money and a tiny space! Please bring a friend to participate, some challenging queries, and silly bee jokes to share. This is a two- part Introduction to beekeeping workshop spanning November & December; attending both workshops will help you get the most out of them!

~~~~~~

Honeyguts Apiaries has been built up in RVA over the last 5 years by two queer punx (Jack Weisskohl & Cath! Cowan) who are dedicated to studying, using, and promoting holistic healthcare practices everyday. The Apiary is a part of the Weed It, Then Eat It! Apothecary, which focuses on holistic healthcare through Herbalism. Since a beehive is a living medicine chest, The Apiary utilizes Apitherapy in their Apothecary practices. Cath! and Jack tend bees all around Virginia, facilitate workshops regularly, and get stung even more often (it’s good for you, don’t sweat it). They’d be delighted if you tended bees as well, or in the very least planted native pollinator gardens with yr friends.

Art Show Soft Opening

Gallery5 presents ART – SHOW! To open Thursday Dec. 4th, and continue on Dec. 5th in conjunction with the First Fridays Art Walk/Curated Culture. The upstairs gallery will feature a retrospective collection of paintings by Richmond artist and sign painter, William Pickett. The likes of his steady hand can be seen upon businesses such as Halcyon Vintage and New York Deli, and as murals on the James River flood wall and the former GRTC bus depot on Cary Street. Outside of his commercial work, Pickett’s oeuvre extends to a large body of whimsical painting and sculpture that recalls the sign’s formality and function.

In conjunction with Pickett’s artworks, we have put together an all-star bill of Richmond bands and musicians for a ThrowbackThursday/Flashback Friday line up! Thursday Dec. 4th:

**Thing2–FIRST EVER APPEARANCE– Barry Fitzgerald (of Single Bullet Theory) and Johnny Hott (of House of Freaks/Gutterball/Sparklehorse)
**Rebby Sharp (of the Orthotonics)
**Titfield Thunderbolt

Friday Dec. 5th:
**Beex
**Bruce Olsen (of Bruce Olsen and the Offenders)
**surprise guests (of the next generation…).

To top it all off, the downstairs Gallery will feature a vintage print exhibit of Richmond Graphics show posters that have been collected by these musicians and their friends. These posters were printed in the 1970′s and 80′s to promote bands from Richmond’s music community. The majority of these prints are from the personal collections of Michael Maurice Garrett and Tom “Z” Zimmerman.

Do not miss this rare opportunity to see this community combination of art and music all in one place!
