ATMOSPHERES :: Annual Spring WREN Member Show
WREN member artists are invited to participate in the Annual Spring WREN Member Show, which runs April 6 – April 30 2018. Each artist may submit up to two framed and ready to hang or display pieces of original artwork in any medium.

This year, the theme of our Spring show is ATMOSPHERE and is an invitation for member artists to explore all things related to any definition of “atmosphere” including, but not limited to: space, tone, a surrounding or pervading mood, environment, or influence, a distinctive quality, or character of a place.

Members can submit up to two pieces.
There is no price or size limit, though we ask members to be considerate when choosing their works, in recognition that this is a popualr group show.
Work should be dropped off at the Gallery on Tuesday, April 3 between 10am and 4pm.
OPENING RECEPTION is Friday, April 6 from 5-7pm.

ALL ARTWORK MUST BE FOR SALE and READY TO HANG. The Gallery at WREN receives a 45% commission on all work sold through the gallery. Unsold work must be picked up on Tuesday, May 1 before 5pm. For more information email

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
