The Gallery at WREN, Bethlehem, NH. HAVEN IN PLACE: Jane Balshaw & Debbie Aldrich. Though watercolorist Debbie Aldrich has deep roots in the North Country, and textile artist Jane Balshaw is a transplant to the state, both experience intense feelings of belonging and comfort in New Hampshire, which translates into their respective bodies of work, including landscapes, still-lifes, and experiments in abstraction. Opening May 6, 2022, 5-7PM.

Join the five makers of 9th State Artisans; Adele Sanborn, Paper, Cheryl Z. Miller, Textiles, Jane Balshaw, Textiles, Lori Rollason,Clay, and Steve Hayden, Wood and Metal. They will transform the gallery with collaborative vignettes, paying tribute to the seasonal changes of New Hampshire.
