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.

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

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.
