Artist Talk: Sarah Kate Beaumont

What goes behind the creation of art? Artist Sarah Kate Beaumont will share her work, her process, and her vision for art making while thinking about sustainability and our impact to the world - in this personal and inspiring artist talk.

Sarah Kate Beaumont is an interdisciplinary artist whose internationally recognized, decade-long project, Slow Style, was featured in The New York Times and profiled in Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion by Elizabeth Cline. For the duration of this project, begun in 2008, the artist opted out of buying clothing. Instead, she designed and made everything she wore and taught sewing in her art studio. Slow Style is a dynamic exploration of sustainability and stewardship within our shared ecosystem.

Celebrate National Pollinator Week with Apoidea Apiary

Hyperlocal Honey Tasting + DIY Seed Bombs  

Sample and purchase Apoidea Apiary’s Good Food Award-winning honeys, all harvested within 10 miles of downtown Pittsburgh.  Many of the hives kept are within a mile of Make + Matter in the Millvale/ Etna area.  Apoidea’s beekeeper, Christina Joy Neumann, will be talking about the craft of honey making and also be demonstrating how to make native perennial "seed bombs".  These clay/ compost balls are filled with seeds that help provide diverse nutrition to bees and other wildlife in urban open spaces such as backyards, abandoned lots, utility right-of-ways and roadsides.
