WHAT IS THE HIVE?
We’re a mid-century modern space located in the historic Coronado neighborhood.
The Hive is a collective: gallery, coffee shop, Thai mediation and art studio, zine-distro hub, resale boutique and artists’ studios. Our exhibits and offerings change often, so you should stop by whenever you can. And please don’t hesitate to drop us a line with any questions or comments.

The Art of Shachi Kale
About the Artist
Shachi Kale is a visual storyteller, graphic designer, and children’s book illustrator. Conversations with Myself is an exploration of her internal dialogue and an attempt at understanding herself and the many roles she plays. It is a meditation on all her journeys – from India to Arizona, her journey through marriage and motherhood and the internal journey that she takes as she traverses new emotional landscapes. Her depictions of the female form are both autobiographical and universal to women grappling with their place in the world.
Shachi uses watercolors, acrylics, embroidery, and digital arts. She is fascinated by folk art from around the world, the artists’ use of flat colors, simple perspective, and storytelling. She is also drawn to Indian miniature art and the patterns and decorative elements used in them. The vibrant and rich colors of her palette are a legacy of her Indian heritage, and the narrative elements are an influence from her work as a children’s book illustrator.
