Fall for the Arts 2014
Fall for the Arts 2014

It has been another busy year for Buckhaven Beehive as the group looks ahead to its annual arts event next month.

As things move forward with renovating and developing the Beehive base on College Street, Buckhaven, the group has been busy in the background with a number of projects, and now it’s keen to hear from more local artists who would like to be involved.

Over the last few months, Jason Nelson, a young artist based in Dundee, has been working on behalf of the Beehive with a number of local groups as part of the Visioning Levenmouth 2020 project, while the group is now also involved with the Levenmouth Twinning Association, which aims to create a link between this area and Bruges, near Bordeaux, in the south of France.

The Beehive also plans to host an Arts Residency in 2016 involving artists from Levenmouth and Bruges, and local artists Pat Bray and Marysia Lachowicz are working closely with the Beehive to move this project forward.

In August, the third annual Fall for the Arts Exhibition takes place, which is an opportunity for local artists, whether professional, amateur or beginners, to have their work seen and for local people to come along and view some spectacular locally-produced work.

The event this year is open to the public on September 5-6, from 10am to 3pm each day.
