Best Betts 2017

Opening reception Friday September 22, 5:30-8:00 pm

Betts Gallery moves into fall with a show entitled ‘BEST BETTS’. We’ve decided to go through our own collection of works, and offer up some of them for sale, along with a host of other works by local artists, including: Daniel Anselmi, Julie Cyr, Sheep Jones, Kathleen Mack, Willy Reddick and Julie Rose. This will be a revolving show, meaning, when a piece is sold, it will be replaced by something new. This ever-changing exhibit will stay up through December 24th, which will allow you plenty of time to return to see what’s new! We hope you’ll join us for an opening reception on Friday September 22, 5:30-8pm, as part of the Belfast Art Walk.

Comfort Zone

August 4- September 2, 2017
Opening reception on Friday August 4th, 5:30-8pm

Please join Betts Gallery at an opening reception on Friday August 4th, 5:30-8pm, for their late summer show entitled ‘Comfort Zone’. The show features paintings by two expressive midcoast artists, Kathleen Mack and Carol Sloane. Mack divides her time between Round Pond, Maine and Italy, and Sloane between Washington, Maine and Nova Scotia. In Mack’s oil and wax paintings, she explores the idea of wanderers, ‘living on the edge’ in search of a comfortable place, while Sloane’s oil paintings explore the mutual affection and devotional relationship between people and their pets. The show runs from August 4th through September 2nd.

Paper, Ink, Press

June 30th -July 29th
Opening June 30, 5:30-8:00 p.m.

Please join Betts Gallery in Belfast for an opening reception on Friday June 30th, 5:30-8pm for a group show entitled ‘Paper, Ink, Press’. Eleven midcoast artists show their stuff, using a variety of printmaking methods including, monotype, monoprint, wood block, linoleum block, deconstructed collograph, white line woodblock, and etchings. Printmaking is a way of producing multiples of an image, but it is often the process that gets printmakers excited, whether it’s the carving of a block, or the etching of a plate, or the surprises that happen when the paper comes in contact with the ink.

The artists are: Karen Adrienne, Daniel Anselmi, Holly Berry, Sally Brophy, Julie Crane, Jeffrey Jelenfy, Marc Leavitt, Leslie Moore, Maryfaith Morison, Willy Reddick and Dyan Ross. The show runs from June 30th through July 29th. The Belfast Framer and Betts Gallery are located at 96 Main St, and also may be entered on Beaver St. For more information please call (207) 338-6465.

Betts Gallery announces a reunion show of the original artists from the former Aarhus Gallery- but with an interesting twist; each Aarhusian has invited an artist friend to include one piece to hang alongside their work in the exhibition. Some pairings are collaborative while others feature works that are distinctly different. The artists include seven charter members of Aarhus and their friends: Annadeene Fowler/Susan Brady, Kevin Johnson/Ben Potter, Mark Kelly/Vincent Abaldo, Richard Mann/Linden Frederick, Abbie Read/Karen MacDonald, Wesley Reddick/Doug Bell and Willy Reddick/Julie H Rose. The show runs from September 23rd – October 29th, with an opening reception on Friday, September 23rd from 5:30 -8:00 pm.
