Betts Gallery kicks off the 2018 season with a show entitled ‘Halcyon’. This show features a plenteous group of local artists exploring the theme halcyon, which Webster’s defines as various species of kingfishers (in Latin; alcyon), as well as a feeling of calm or peacefulness, joy, prosperity or tranquility. The show runs through June 30th, and includes artists Daniel Anselmi, Sally Brophy, Kenny Cole, Susan Cooney, MJ Viano Crowe, Julie Cyr, Kris Engman, David Estey, JT Gibson, Jeffrey Jelenfy, Sheep Jones, Marc Leavitt, Karen MacDonald, Leslie Moore, Abbie Read, Wes Reddick, Willy Reddick, Dyan Ross, Lesia Sochor and April White.
Please join them for an opening reception as part of the Belfast Fourth Friday Art Walk, May 25th, 5:30-8pm. It’s always a fun time to walk around town, visit the galleries, talk to the artists and enjoy some fine refreshments. The Belfast Framer and Betts Gallery is located at 96 Main Street in Belfast, and also may be entered from Beaver Street.
