About the Hive

The Hive Ocean Grove brings together a unique mix of Bronze sculpture, paintings, handcrafted furniture, and ceramics made by both established and emerging artists, many of them talented locals.

Downstairs is the exclusive home of Willie Wildlife Sculptures with their signature bronze birdbaths and freestanding sculptures.

Upstairs each month we feature a Solo or Group Exhibition in the Middle Room Space with a guest or in-house artist along with our stable of over 30 represented artists work.

We are honoured to be part of the Geelong Regional Gallery Membership Benefits Program.

Recent Exhibition

DAWN TO DUSK – GEORGIE GALL

Georgie Gall’s last exhibition at The Hive was in 2019. We are delighted to welcome her back with a new Exhibition of tranquil paintings, “Dawn to Dusk” exploring the waterways in the changing light of day’. Expect her signature textured impasto works, with a softer palette that highlights her love of the coast and the inland lakes and waterways.

In an inaugural event, the “Artist of the Month“, we are proud to support The Royal Melbourne Hospital Foundation with funds raised from the Exhibition contributing towards new equipment in the Ophthalmology Department. This cause is close to Georgie’s heart. Her work already graces the walls of the ICU Waiting Room to create a calm and contemplative atmosphere there. This initiative further builds these ties and aims to support this worthy cause. We thank the Royal Melbourne Hospital Foundation for their support of the Exhibition “Dawn to Dusk” in return.
