Wild Bees
May 23 – October 18, 2020

Wild Bees, an exhibition showcasing the works of Paula Sharp and Ross Eatman, is a collection of stunning macro photographs depicting the world of America’s native bees. The exhibit is on a national tour of prominent museums, botanical gardens and galleries and will be featured at the International Museum of Art & Science from May 23, 2020–October 18, 2020.

Sharp and Eatman are co-authors of the highly-regarded and popular website, Wild Bees of New York, the culmination of a three-year project tracking and photographing more than 120 northeastern bee species. Supported by the New York State Environmental Protection Fund, the project focused on bees of New York’s Rockefeller State Park Preserve, a forested area that is home to many woodland bee species; and Stone Barns Center for Food & Agriculture, an experimental farmland with orchards, vegetable gardens and apiaries.

In September of 2018, Sharp and Eatman commenced a new project at the National Butterfly Center of Hidalgo County, Texas, documenting native bee species inhabiting the unique ecosystems of the Lower Rio Grande Valley. In January 2019, Sharp & Eatman launched Wild Bees of the National Butterfly Center, a website dedicated to LRGV bees.

Paula Sharp is a photojournalist and writer. She is the author of the bestseller Crows Over a Wheatfield and four other New York Times Notable Books. Sharp has traveled throughout the United States and Brazil, photographing and documenting life here and in the Amazon. Ross Eatman has been a nature and travel photographer for twenty years. He is a co-founder of Sharp-Eatman Nature Photography, a society dedicated to documenting conservation issues.

Warriors of Light


Warriors of Light Exhibit at IMAS

Warriors of Light
On Exhibit: September 5, 2020 – March 28, 2021

Warriors of Light is part of the figurative series of the artist Max Vityk. In this series Vityk investigates the narrative elements and figures of ancient rock engravings and mythological and folk symbols.

Through the Warriors of Light, Vityk seeks to modernize the archetypal mystical material to convey current events onto the plane of the internal struggle between good and evil. The paintings explore the historical revolutionary events the artist lived through during his stay in Ukraine and Egypt between 2011 – 2015. The exhibit is comprised of 12 large acrylic paintings.

Ukraine and Egypt endured multiple significant political/govermental crises between 2011 – 2015.

Warriors of Light is on loan from the artist, Max Vityk.
