Meet the Artists of NEVERLAND!

The Gallery at WREN presents: 
NEVERLAND | Works by Evan Haynes and John Tully

On Friday, July 6, from 5-7pm the Gallery at WREN presents the opening reception of NEVERLAND, a celebration of place, featuring the evocative and moody photographs of John Tully and the mysterious, melancholic paintings of Evan Haynes. Both artists share a deep love for the places and people of Northern New England. Paired together, their work offers a space for viewers to contemplate themes of memory, meaning, life, beauty, and loss.

 

Evan Haynes has ties to Northern New Hampshire that date back to his time as a student at Franconia College, where he earned a degree in Environmental Design. For more than 25 years his work has focused on public art and community design throughout New England. Recently he’s returned to studio work in painting, printmaking, and photography. He has received multiple commissions from Maine Percent for Art projects, and his work was featured in master planning initiates for the State Memorial Park in Augusta, Maine, and an Arts District plan for the City of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Grants and awards include those from the University of Maine, the Maine Arts Commission, the LEF Foundation, the Vermont Council of the Arts and, in collaboration with Stephen Dignazio and Ron Smith, Art and Community Landscapes; a three year artist residency with the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, funded by the National Park Service, the New England Foundation for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts. Evan splits his time now between New Zealand and Yarmouth, Maine.

 

John Tully is a New Hampshire-based documentary photographer whose work focuses on the backyards and back roads that make up daily life of a community. A graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism and student at the Danish School of Media and Journalism, John worked as a staff photographer for several daily newspapers following college before focusing on long-term projects. Time Magazine named him ‘Instagram Photographer to Follow’ for the state of New Hampshire in 2016 and North Carolina in 2015. His work has been displayed at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles, the Kelley Stelling Contemporary in Manchester, as a collaborator on Echosight, Fly Over Media, and a self-published book was selected for a juried show The Blue Library Chapbook Exhibition at the Antenna Gallery during PhotoNOLA. The recipient of numerous national and international awards for photography and editing, John has regularly worked for Rolling Stone Magazine, Süddeutsche Zeitung Magazin, Dagbladet Information, Newsweek Magazine, Vice, WIRED, The Washington Post, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, de Volkskrant, MSNBC, Education Week Magazine, and USA Today, among others.

Artists are invited to apply for an exhibit in the 2019 Season in 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.
