The Hive was such a great discovery for me as a local artist. The gallery space is beautiful and shows off an artist’s work better than other galleries in and around Austin. Another plus is the exhibition of student artwork alongside the work of professional artists. If you’ve never been to the Hive, make it a point to stop by – you are in for a treat!

I completed a volunteer internship at The Hive for two months in between my bachelor’s and master’s degree. I helped with content writing, general organizational tasks, and running the weekly volunteer sessions. The Hive is a great place to take initiative and develop your professional skills. I truly enjoyed learning from Deby and the other volunteers about their life experiences and efforts behind running a nonprofit organization.

“As an artist I love having the opportunity to exhibit my work in such a beautiful gallery. The folks here are friendly and welcoming and they love to chat with all the visitors about the exhibitions and art opportunities in the area. I also enjoy getting to see the work of other local artists and connect with them.”

“The Hive offers a wonderfully inviting space in which to view the work of local artists. From photography, to pottery, to collage there is always a variety of art on display. If you are in the Bee Cave area The Hive is definitely worth a visit.”

“I have lived in Bee Cave for four years, and the scenic views inspire me. I have been taking iPhone photographs from my balconies and saving them. Then I read about a “dark skies” photography exhibition at The Hive, so I selected a few of my night images and sent them in. To my surprise, two images were chosen for the show. What a treat! And everyone was so nice at Bee Cave Arts Foundation and at the City of Bee Cave. Thanks, everyone.”
