2021 Painted Hive Body Art Competition

The 2021 PHB Competition is underway! Boxes are on show at Hampton Roads Wholesalers in Newport News. Stop in to see the great work our artists have contributed and bid on all your favorites. Since Virginia State Beekeepers Association meeting has been postponed until October, the judging of the art competition will be announced as soon as a new date & venue have been chosen.

Updates to Follow

The 2020 PHB auction is over!  Thank you to all those that took the time to paint a box or bid on a box. You helped us exceed our expectations in light of the COVID Pandemic.  All profits from the auction go towards our annual grant which in this case will be combined with 2021 to provide a more substantial amount.
