Jeanette Fournier is a self-taught artist specializing in watercolor paintings of animals, birds, and nature. With family ties in both the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont and the White Mountains of New Hampshire, Fournier spent a great deal of time outdoors exploring, drawing and observing what she saw in the woods.

Fournier explains of her work: “I am drawn to create artwork of the wild creatures in our world so we will remember them. I want my art to remind people of the importance of saving the natural places around us as well as the importance of being a part of them.”

Mimi Wiggin is an award-winning artist painting with oils in a representational style, depicting birds, wildlife and local scenes. She has spent almost her entire life in rural New Hampshire. Enjoying nature has always been an important part of her daily routine. Painting is her way of expressing her feelings for the natural world and she sums up those feelings as follows:

“The outdoors has always been a wonderment to me. In my paintings I want to pass along this wonder and raise awareness of what is in our backyards to encourage everyone of us to live in harmony with our natural surroundings”.

BETHLEHEM, NH - After a busy summer season, The Gallery at WREN is pleased to announce a September filled with two must-see exhibits. In addition to hosting “Northern Exposure”, which will feature the works of Jeanette Fournier and Mimi Wiggin, the Gallery has partnered with The Colonial Theatre in Bethlehem, NH to bring to life the images of world-renowned photographer and filmmaker Deborah Anderson in the “Women of the White Buffalo” exhibit.

As part of The Colonial’s mid-September social justice film series, Anderson’s work will make an appearance both on film at The Colonial and in print within the Gallery at WREN.

After sixteen years spent working as a photographer, artist, and art director, Anderson set her sights on the world of documentary filmmaking. The resulting piece, a two-year endeavor titled Women of the White Buffalo, chronicles the experiences of 8 Native American Lakota women living on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. Through the power of both film and photography, Anderson captures the indelible voices of the women whose strengths, struggles, and ancient insights stand in defiance of the global, environmental, and cultural crises which transcend the centuries.

Anderson’s photography, which explores the documentary’s subjects in even greater depth, will be on display in the “Women of the White Buffalo” exhibit within the Gallery at WREN from Friday, August 28 to Tuesday, September 29. All of Anderson’s work will be available for purchase, with proceeds from the Gallery sales directly benefiting both WREN and Women of the White Buffalo.

Colonial Theatre showtimes for Women of the White Buffalo will run Saturday, September 12 at 7:30 PM and Sunday, September 13 at 1:30 PM.

Women of the White Buffalo has won 7 awards including the best feature documentary accolade at the 24th Red Nation Film Festival and Best Director of a Feature Documentary at the Los Angeles Independent Film Festival. The images displayed in the Gallery were taken on the reservations during the filming of the documentary and showcase many of the women featured in the film, as well as landscapes from the region.
