Gallery at WREN
The 2022 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.
Friday, July 1, 3-7 PM, join WREN for a Summer Block Party celebrating the opening of Lifecycles, the new exhibition in the Gallery at WREN, featuring metalsmith Lucy Golden and landscape painter Michele Johnsen.
Both artists use their work to explore the mysteries of the natural world, from the complex communication between trees to the intricate and delicate life cycles of native insects.
Experience the world created in Lifecycles this Friday, July 1. Shop local (and outside!) in WREN’s Pocket Park starting at 3 PM, featuring pop-ups from WREN vendors and members, while DJ Juiced plays your favorite summer tunes, sponsored by the Washwick Agency. Then head inside for the exhibition’s opening reception, 5-7 PM. Chat with the artists about their inspirations, and meet like-minded art lovers. Wine and refreshments will be served!
Lifecycles will be on view at the Gallery at WREN from Friday, July 1 through Sunday, August 28. The Gallery is open during WREN’s regular hours, Monday-Saturday 10 AM – 5 PM and Sunday 10 AM – 4 PM.
The Adair Country Inn & Restaurant is the proud sponsor of the Gallery at WREN.

ARTS AT ADAIR
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.
