Diverting work by Mack at Betts
Belfast — “Divertimenti,” an exhibition of recent oils, encaustics and bronzes by Kathleen Mack, will go on view Wednesday, July 23, at Betts Gallery at The Belfast Framer, 96 Main St. There will be a Final Friday Art Walk reception July 25 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. There is a second entrance on Beaver Street.
Mack has been painting professionally since 1993. She paints in oil and water media, and sculpts in wax and stone. She is primarily interested in the human figure, alone and in relationship to other figures and surroundings, finding that gesture is all important in her work.
The show’s title derives from the Italian divertire, “to amuse.” Often considered a musical genre, Mank has adapted the lighthearted mood of the term to her works in the exhibition, which will run through Aug. 23.
