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.

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.
