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.
