Gallery at WREN

The 2021 Gallery Season is sponsored by the Adair Inn.

The Gallery at WREN sets the standard for fine art galleries in the North Country. Established in 2001, the Gallery serves as a cultural outlet for the creative expression of a community, where the public can gather to enjoy, learn about, and appreciate art.

We welcome you to visit the Gallery during our regular store hours.

In the mountains of northern New Hampshire, where opportunities for professional artists and serious art lovers can be limited, the Gallery presents a new show every two months featuring local and regional artists. Once a year, WREN members are invited to participate in popular open-call group shows, which serve not only as supportive learning experiences for new and emerging artists, but as community celebrations of the incredible talent and diversity in our midst.

The Gallery at WREN offers engaging artist talks and monthly show insights on Facebook, as well as “Arts at Adair”, a new initiative in partnership with the Adair Country Inn & RestaurantFollow us on social media to learn mor

Current Exhibition:

Elements: Art & Holiday Gifts

WREN celebrates its talented artists and artisans in this member exhibition. The walls of the gallery feature work by twenty different artists, while down the center of the room shines a 22-foot-long table set for a holiday feast, decorated with work by more than 15 artists and artisans. In this exhibition, all forms of creative expression are celebrated, from pottery to painting, soapmaking to printmaking, hand-crafted jewelry to hand-made wood wares.

WREN will mark the occasion of the opening of Elements: Art & Holiday Gifts with a reception extending from the gallery, through the store, and out to WREN’s Pocket Park. Bitchin’ Kitchen food truck will serve up culinary delights while gallery-goers can gather by the bonfire, sip mulled wine, and kick of the holiday season.

Elements: Art & Holiday Gifts runs through January 2, 2022. The tablescape portion will remain on view only through December 2, 2021 so that on Saturday, December 4 and December 11, WREN may host holiday pop-ups in the gallery, where participating WREN vendors will introduce special seasonal products.

Each element of this exhibition provides ample opportunity for thoughtful gift-giving of handmade work by local artists and artisans, sure to delight both the receiver and the giver. Supporting WREN and our artist and artisans helps to support our local economy, and what better gift is there than the spirit of community?

ARTS AT ADAIR

The Adair Inn

As a community-focused 501(c)(3) nonprofit, WREN is always seeking out new pathways for partnerships in the North Country.

One of our latest initiatives is “Arts at Adair”, a rotating exhibit in collaboration with the historical Adair Country Inn & Restaurant. Through this initiative, we are able to bring the work of our beloved local artists beyond the bounds of our storefront and Gallery space, and into the sitting room of an iconic Bethlehem inn filled with guests from near and far.

Visit the Adair website for additional information on current and upcoming shows on display at the Inn.
