City Country

Sheep Jones, Industrial Bees, 36×36, oil on canvas, $3300

Opening Reception on Friday January 31st, 5:30-8pm

Betts Gallery is starting off the new year with a show of paintings by Sheep Jones and her sister Julie Cyr, who passed away in December 2019. The show entitled ‘City Country’ runs from January 24th through February 21st. Coming home to Maine, the Waterville natives, settled in Belfast after years of working and living in other places. Each with their own unique voice and their vivid imagination, using figures, animals and landscapes, their paintings tell stories with an air of mystery and magic realism.

Please join us for an evening among friends, and raise a glass to Julie, at an opening reception on Friday January 31st, 5:30-8pm. The Belfast Framer and Betts Gallery is located at 96 Main Street in Belfast, and also may be entered from Beaver Street. For more information please call 338-6465 or visit the website, www.thebelfastframer.
