The Bees are Disappearing!

by Dee Hudson Photography

It is a good thing that these bees are disappearing, for they are part of S. Gayle Stevens’ exhibit. Go see her current exhibition, Disppearance, at Alibi Fine Art in Chicago. Gayle’s wet plate tintypes will be featured at this photography gallery until October 25 and then they . . . disappear.


Sally Mann Bee
I chose a bee tintype that features an expired bee originally from Sally Mann’s farm. I love this small  connection to Sally Mann, because I have always her enjoyed her beautiful black & white photography. It is easy to tell which bees came from Mann’s farm, because they have a chunkier abdomen than the other bees in the exhibit.


Artist Talk
Gayle expressed concern for the honey bee colony losses in the United States these past years and discussed how our food industry depends on their pollination. All the foods served at Gayle’s reception require pollination by honey bees and were therefore a reminder to us how much we daily depend on this little insect.



River North Art Walk

Catherine Edelman Gallery
Standing outside the Edelman Gallery and peering inside, I was surprised to see so many people enjoying the art walk. Now that I have discovered these Chicago gallery walks, I will definitely enjoy more in the future.

_MG_5528Gregory Scott
Gregory Scott is the featured artist at the Edelman Gallery until November 1, and his work is amazing! He combines photography, painting & video to create his unique art. Scott’s work explores art, how we look at art, and how we choose art. As the star in his own videos, Scott creates fascinating illusions and humorous scenarios. I really enjoyed his piece entitled “Don’t Fade Away”. Below, is a photo of “Half Dome”, a piece that alludes to Ansel Adam’s art. Check them out!


Each of Scott’s pieces have a video mounted within the image. Quite a crowd gathered around to view Scott’s “Warholian”. Just think, if you have an extra $22,000 in pocket change, you will be able to purchase one of Scott’s pieces! I would love to own one.


“Fleeting Moments” Exhibition

Arterie Fine Arts presents . . .

Five dynamic gals + Gayle S. Steven’s class + amazing photos =

A Fine Art Exhibition
All five of us gals worked intensely on our photography personal projects from January through May, with Gayle S. Stevens as our instructor and awesome mentor. At the end
of the semester we five had some great images to share, enough for a show. The fun began . . . renting the space, matting, framing, creating posters & promos, inviting
guests . . . whew! . . . we were finally ready for our exhibit!


My images for this exhibit are from my series, “Winter Slumber”, photographed in Illinois prairies this past winter. To see more of my work, visit my website at Dee Hudson Photography.

A big thanks to all my friends and family that came to my show & helped make the evening a success!
