About The Gallery at WREN
For more than ten years, the Gallery has provided a space where local and regional artists can display and sell their work in a professional setting. 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.
Open year round, the Gallery presents a new show each month, featuring artists who have been carefully selected by juried committee. Accomplished painters, photographers, potters, sculptors, fiber and multi-media artists have all exhibited their work on the Gallery’s walls. Twice a year, WREN members are invited to participate in open-call group shows, which are exceptionally well received and 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. Along with Meet the Artist receptions on the first Friday of each month, the Gallery hosts a variety of events including artist talks, demonstrations, slideshows and workshops, all aimed at directly engaging people with art and art-making. And we begin each season in January with a celebratory Gala Preview with works from all artists in the upcoming year.
