THE HIVE IS buzzing.
The Hive Gallery is an exciting new arts space in Ocean Grove.
It is the dream project of Karen Spreadborough and Will Wilson of Willie Wildlife Sculptures.
“Having worked for 15 years from our garage it is wonderful to now display the sculptures in a bright, purpose-built space.”
Situated in the industrial estate with Kyo across the road, the new Stone and Grain homewares store directly behind, and the leafy outlook to the nature reserve beside them, the location is perfect.
A BRONZE sculptor is realising his creative dream by expanding from the garage to the gallery in a collaborative venture launching in Ocean Grove this month.
The Hive gallery is the artistic brainchild of Will Willson, who hopes to expand his own business – Willie Wildlife Sculptures – while also providing valuable space for several other local artists to showcase their wares.
Imagine spotting a couple of metre-high 100-kilogram chooks in the garden warily eyeing off a three-metre blue-tounge lizard, and a 750 kilogram giant turtle. You’d be forgiven for thinking some sort of genetic modification was at play.
These amazing creatures are just a few of Will Wilson’s magnificent Willie Wildlife Sculptures.
