Current exhibition on show at the Hive Gallery:
On show starting Monday 17th February until Wednesday 9th April.
Jodi Award winning Sound Canvas by Zoe Partington comes to the Hive, following the popularity of its display at The Public in West Bromwich.
Sound Canvas acts like a digital harp, providing artwork that can be triggered by everyone without any need for complicated interaction. Visitors are invited to come and create their own unique audio-visual experiences using movement.
Zoe's work is about how we view our world and questions, “What is a canvas? and “Who decides that it has to be visual?” Sound Canvas is one of five commissions as part of DASH’s project IN ‘Disability art in the mainstream’. The exhibition in the Hive’s Gallery Space will also feature a small selection of digital Shropshire landscapes and poetry.
Future exhibitions on show at the Hive Gallery:

The British Red Cross Shropshire Young Carers will be displaying some unique pictures taken by local photographer Simon Jones. The photos will show the varied partnership work undertaken between the Young Carers Service and the Hive - capturing numerous creative projects.
Each picture showcased will have a short explanation written by the Young Carers themselves.
