Located in the historic Hurley Factory!

facebook_banner_CheersToAYearLocated in the historic Hurley factory, we’re home to Ovation Guitars, Parrott Delaney Tavern, Quilted Ewe and a diverse group of art studios and businesses!

We’re here because the Hurley family had a vision to renovate the building to studio spaces and create a vibrant creative community where the public would feel welcome.

THE HIVE embraces this vision and together with the New Hartford Business Council and Brian Hurley, we bring you the annual CHEERS TO A YEAR AT HURLEY event each year just before Summer!

The event is a celebration of community, local artists, farms and businesses with Door Prizes, Open Studios, an Artists’ Trunk Show, farm table, community displays, Hub Cap Art Exhibit for three charities, art on display, live music and more!
