Andrew Tyzack: Front Cover: Beekeeping in Britain: Trends in Biochemical Sciences

Andrew Tyzack’s painting: ‘Beekeeping in Britain’ was recently licensed for the front cover of ‘Trends in Biochemical Sciences’. Inside, this is what they said:

As any apiarist will tell you, knowing that there is a ‘sting in the tail’ will provide you with a keen awareness of how you should regulate your behaviour around your bees. Similarly, recent structural studies of protein phosphotase 2A (PP2A) family members show that the ‘sting’ in the carboxy-terminal tail of its A-type subunits is important for the binding and dynamic exchange of its regulatory B-type subunits.

Bees In Art: Raising Awareness About Pollinators In Peril

Bees In Art: Raising Awareness About Pollinators In Peril
Andrew Tyzack and Debbie Grice Found Special Gallery To Celebrate Role Of Bees In Our Lives
Written By
Todd Wilkinson

As artists who together operate The Land Gallery in England in East Yorkshire, they decided to do something about it: Put out a call to other artists and open a virtual gallery with procceds from the sale of artwork going to the cause of pollinator conservation. Tyzack has a particular insight into the problem, which in many parts of the globe has manifested itself as Colony Collapse Disorder. Outbreaks of CCD have been blamed on a virulent combination of mites and a fungus killing honey bees with weakened immune systems potentially caused by exposure to pesticides. Loss of habitat also is taking a serious toll on wild bees, with several species in the U.S. now imperiled.

Tyzack himself is a third-generation beekeeper, a practitioner of the apiary arts, husbanding his domestic honey hives to make sweet honey.

More and more, artists are stepping forward to aid in the cause of conservation. This effort on behalf of pollinators is similar to one led by biologist Kerry Kriger who founded Save The Frogs and has sponsored an art contest that is open to painters of all ages.

Bees in Art celebrates Hymenoptera, the order of insect that encompasses honey bees, bumblebees and related species. He said that he and Grice welcome artists in North America to contact him if they are interested in supporting bee conservation by making works available for sale...
