Elsabe Dixon’s exhibition at VisArts Gibbs Street Gallery (September 5 – October 14) focuses on honey, pollinators and bread. Baking and beekeeping are not only ancient spiritual/sacred crafts, but they are also the last frontier in a world that faces increasing food deserts because of pesticide and GMO contamination.
