‘Momentum’ is part of the gallery’s current virtual exhibit featuring 14 paintings by the Moncton artist.
Paintings by Jared Betts’ can be found the world over, in private collections from Paris to Los Angeles. His work often features bright colours, deliberate drips and abstract imagery. He completed his MFA at NSCAD in Halifax, Nova Scotia and had his first international exhibition (Iceland) the same year. Over the past ten years Betts has participated in dozens of exhibitions across New Brunswick, Canada and around the world.
This week Gallery on Queen launched a 14 piece virtual exhibition of Betts’ work. This show marks the gallery’s first foray into the world of virtual exhibitions.
“We are currently living in uncertain times,” said Gallery on Queen’s Nadia Khoury. “Our doors may be closed but art will persevere and continue to unite us. Momentum marks a new chapter for the Gallery as we experiment with digitizing our experiences going forward. These are trying times but we hope to use these new online formats to continue bringing our community together and share new works with everyone.”
