Opening Reception: Saturday February 9, 7pm - 11pm

Collectively, they make up as much as 30 million species worldwide consisting of nearly 90% of all organisms inhabiting this planet.  Their origin dates back more than 300 million years and, within one year, they feast on a third of the Earth’s food crop.  And beginning on February 9, our gallery will be under siege in a swarm of creativity that has never quite been witnessed before.

A Band of Bugs is an art show dedicated solely to those small sometimes creepy yet colorful, whimsical and wonderfully weird creatures that we encounter on a daily basis.  What would the world be without bugs?  Some might argue we’d be better off, but the eight artists featured in this spectacle of a show would beg to differ.
