2014 Art Haven Buoy Pre-Auction Party At The Hive

If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a million times- The Hive and Art Haven have to be either close to or at the very top of a vast majority of organizations involved in making cool events happen in Gloucester.
The positive energy radiating from this place off the chain.
Good people top to bottom and fun times are guaranteed just by being in their presence.
That being said, there is no better time to be in their presence than the annual buoy auction next Friday night when the biggest fundraiser of the year for the organization takes place.
Go and have a fun time and at the same time support a tremendous group of young energetic people who are putting in a ton of energy to make our community a better place.

Huge thanks to major sponsor of the Buoy Auction Cape Ann Savings Bank-

It’s soooo easy to make Holiday Shopping Painless By Shopping Local and now with the Hive and Teen Artist Guild offering Giftwrapping service on Ladies night, it’s even easier and MORE FUN to get your shit done locally instead of fighting the crowds at the mall.  No Brainer City Baby!

Hey Joey!

Okay – to add to the awesome traditions of Ladies Night the Teen Artist Guild is having an open studio/boutique and wrapping event.

Custom made wrapping paper to wrap gifts – for free, of course donations to the program would be lovely!

Cape Ann Art Haven and The Hive Center celebrated their 5 year and 1 year anniversaries on August 27

TheHiveSideWalkCape Ann Art Haven and The Hive Center celebrated their 5 year and 1 year anniversaries on August 27. Over the past five years, we have emerged as important members of downtown Gloucester, serving hundreds of youth, artists and emerging artists. Our founder David Brooks expressed deep appreciation to all those who have been the backbone of the success that Art Haven has seen over the years. “It has been amazing to see so many amazing people willing to lend a hand to make it all possible. We have been blessed and are excited to have the support as we look to the future at all that is to come.”

Our anniversary party drew over a hundred people to The Hive and its success was largely due to the support of various donors. We have many “Thank You“s to share! Chive Catering and Sustainable Event Planning provided all the delicious food, which was made possible through food donations from local farms. Chive runs zero-waste events and composts all their left over products.  Ryan & Wood, Cape Ann Brewery Company and Seabreeze Liquors provided all the adult libations. Cape Pond Ice generously donated all the ice to keep the drinks nice and chilled. Most importantly, we want to give a final “shout out”to everyone who came and helped make The Hive truly buzz with life and vitality last Saturday night.

It was such a great time we are planning on making this event an annual summer fling!
