Participents included both the Art Hive group themselves (Catherine Starling, Ian Mannion, Dennis Ryan, Violeta Pserackaite, Laima Bujak) and guest artists Brigid Teehan, Lyn Mather and Aisling Egan. Exhibits were varied, covering a wide range of styles and mediums.

Omni Hive itself was the title of Art Hives' first collaborative work, incorporating each members' disciplines. It consisted of several suspended white textile panels woven and stitched by Catherine Starling and Violeta Pserackaite, with pale ceramic pieces hung in front on knotted string. Dennis Ryan a ceramicist, cast the pieces from everyday commercial packaging molds provided by Ian Mannion (an inspirational source for him).
