Artist Nicola Parente guides his student through an art lesson

WITS is proud to share that Artist Nicola Parente will have an opening reception for his “Colony Collapse” installation, bringing light to the disappearance of bees and colony collapse disorder.

Nicola has been a longtime volunteer and WITS teaching artist, including helping kids create art from recycled materials through the Environmental Writing Project.

The opening reception is free and will take place from 6-8 pm this Saturday, April 13, 2013 at David A Brown’s micro scope 1824 experimental art space at Spring Street Studios.

The site specific installation will be on exhibit through May 31. Please join WITS in support of Nicola’s newest work that is getting a huge “buzz” around town.  Artist Nicola Parente used more than 2,700 brown paper bags to create “Colony Collapse.” The installation, bathed in amber light, is designed to look like an empty beehive.
