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 thebelfastframer.com Please join us to celebrate the exhibit and wish Norman Tinker a well-deserved happy birthday on his 80th!
