Pop Up Art Bethel is a temporary art gallery that has opened across the street from Bethel Cinema in Bethel, CT. Pop-up galleries have become a popular way to use vacant storefronts for a positive use that brings people into the area. It's a win-win for property owners and artists.

PUAB was spearheaded by artists Michael Seri and Frank Kara (who is also the building's owner).

According to the Connecticut Post, the gallery will be open Thursdays through Sundays through July 30, 2012 with an opening reception on Saturday, June 30, 2 - 5 pm. There will be live music by the jazz band "Tonal Eclipse."
