The Arts and Cultural Alliance (ACA) of Newport County presents an Arts Behind the Scenes event featuring Timothy Michael Hetland, an artist focused on creating exciting works with metals and alloys, stones and crystals, and wood. Mr. Hetland is a 3rd generation Norwegian descending from Kragerø, Norway. Through his metal artworks he focuses on the fine balance and beauty of metal, wood, crystal and stone to create lasting interior and exterior sculptures. The raw metal materials and ocean washed stone used are made to last and are of high grade metals and alloys including aluminum, stainless steel, copper and bronze. He will discuss the general process behind development of his works, including sketching and research, as well as discussing and demonstrating some of his metal and stone-working techniques.

Since 1994, the Arts and Cultural Alliance of Newport County has fulfilled its mission to promote and advance arts and culture in Newport County for the benefit of the community. As a member-supported organization, the ACA offers seminars, workshops and networking opportunities for artist members.
One of the Alliance’s key tasks is to help guide the interconnection between creative or cultural contributors and various opportunities presented by businesses, schools, donors, audiences, events, commissions and others. The Arts Behind the Scenes program seeks to introduce the ACA members and the general public to what goes on behind the scenes in development and presentation of art works, music, dance or theater that are of interest to the community.

Tickets for the Arts Behind the Scenes event are $10 for ACA Members and $12 for non-ACA members. A limited number of tickets are available at the ACA
