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 Brookgreen Gardens June 5 2021– October 31, 2021.
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.
