Betts Gallery hosting “Norman Tinker at 80: Looking Back- Moving Ahead “

Sculpture/image by Norman Tinker

Betts Gallery in Belfast is excited to be hosting “Norman Tinker at 80:  Looking Back- Moving Ahead “ a mini mini retrospective of his years as a sculptor.  The opening reception is 5:30 pm to 8 p.m. Friday Oct. 5. This body of work covers a span from 1957 through the present.  Photographs of past work will accompany new collages and sculptures to bring us up Tinker’s present.  “When I turned 79 and began my 80th year last October, I began a self-indulgent process of thinking about what I would like to do to celebrate my 80th birthday. One’s 80th is a real milestone for most people, and should be for me.  I soon found myself thinking about a show, something different than a normal show of just recent work.”  What resulted is this mini retrospective. For more information call 338-6465 or visit Please join us to celebrate the exhibit and wish Norman Tinker a well-deserved happy birthday on his 80th!
