The Gallery at WREN

Local WORKS :: Annual Spring WREN Member Show
In this celebrated annual show, WREN members are invited to explore all things local: the people, the landscapes, the landmarks that make up the places we call home. What does local mean to you?  Does it mean using materials found close to home? Does it mean paying attention to the details of the everyday? All works must be finished, framed and/or otherwise ready to hang or display, and be original artwork not shown previously in The Gallery at WREN.  
Work should be dropped off at The Gallery on Tuesday, April 4, between 10am and 4pm.
Opening Reception on First Friday, April 7 from 5-7pm.

ALL ARTWORK MUST BE FOR SALE. WREN receives a 40% commission on all work sold through the Gallery. Unsold works must be picked up on Monday, May 1, before 5pm. For more information email katherinef@wrenworks.org.

Call For Art: 2018 Season in The Gallery at WREN

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.

What WREN Offers Artists
The Gallery at WREN sets the standard for fine art galleries in the North Country. The Gallery is managed by the Gallery Coordinator and a volunteer committee and presents juried solo and group shows in a professional, inviting and well-lit exhibition space on Bethlehem’s Main Street.

• Promotion including design and mailing of postcards sent to our Gallery mailing list, media coverage in all area newspapers, a feature in our email broadcast, and in our triennial magazine.
