An event every week that begins at 8:30 am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, repeating until July 4, 2017

several abstract paintingsWellness Walls for Art presents a special exhibition, Side by Side: Paintings of Henry and Ann Betak, at the University Medical Center in Tuscaloosa, now through July 4, 2017.

The exhibition is part of an ongoing series at the healthcare facility, Wellness Walls for Art, curated by another UA art alumna, Deborah Hughes. Hughes said that Side by Side is a unique opportunity to see the work of two longtime local artists – Ann Betak, MFA alumna and her husband, retired UA Professor of Art Henry Betak – who rarely exhibit together, yet have worked closely and influenced each other over the years. Hughes observed that the Betaks’ art in this exhibition appears in a spectrum: “His linear abstractions are at one end and her nature studies at the other and in the middle that are some intriguing overlaps.” Both Betaks still actively produce work, and Hughes thinks this is the first time in a long time they have shown their work together. “I do believe it is quite some time since Henry’s work has been showcased so extensively.” 

The UMC is located 850 5th Ave E, Tuscaloosa, Alabama 35401. The exhibition is open during its regular business hours: Monday-Friday, 8:30 am-4:45 pm. A Facebook event page is here.
