It's not what we are.

It's what we do.

We put on live concerts and art exhibits. We organize classes and community gatherings. We host charity events. And we make a mean sandwich. Scroll on to discover the many aspects of The Hive.

Stage. Gallery. Bar & cafe. Studio. Community Space.

The Hive is a community art space. From our upstairs gallery and venue to our downstairs studio, equipped with printmaking and pottery materials, from which we host our weekly Community Gatherings, we are all about promoting and encouraging local art and music.

You can learn more about our performances or see our calendar of shows and events, discover what's in the gallery, get a glimpse of Studio B, or see some of our food and drink options. Or use the navigation in the upper right to explore even more.
