Gala collage! copyThe 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, open Monday through Friday, 10am – 5pm, and Saturday, 11am – 5pm.

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 each month, featuring local and regional artists who have been carefully selected by a juried committee. 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.

In lieu of traditional First Friday events, at this time the Gallery at WREN offers engaging artist talks and monthly show insights on Facebook (@wrenworksnh). Follow us on social media to learn more!

For more information, and to find out how you can become involved in the Gallery at WREN, please email hello@wrenworks.org.

As part of our brand new “Arts at Adair” initiative, we will be rotating artwork from our Gallery shows down to the Adair Country Inn & Restaurant every month, as these beautiful works by local artists should know no bounds. The Adair is a historic, beautifully maintained inn located just a few minutes down the road from WREN, and it has long been a retreat for locals in search of fine dining as well as travelers from afar seeking refined lodging.

Now, the Adair will also feature art from WREN!

Our first artist moving from the Gallery at WREN to the Adair will be the inimitable Rosemary Conroy. If you didn’t have a chance to make it into WREN, or would like to learn more about the inspiration behind this artist’s work, now is the time to get out your calendar and mark down some important dates.

Rosemary’s latest show, “Into the Wild”, will be premiering at the Adair on August 7th. Join Rosemary and Adair guests for a spirited 20-minute Artist Talk at 4pm on the 7th, and see how her work comes alive not just on canvas, but in words.

In case you can’t make it to the first Talk, Rosemary will also be hosting a second Artist Talk on Saturday, August 8th at 8pm.

Space is limited for both time slots. If you would like to attend either Artist Talk at the Adair, please reach out to Stacey Rachdorf, Innkeeper, at innkeeper@adairinn.com, prior to August 7th in order to give the event organizers an accurate head count.

“Into the Wild” runs 8/7-9/9.
