Women in Wilderness: Art Opening & Exhibit

Dori Bergman is an outdoor artist whose colorful paintings focus on Women and Wilderness. She is currently pursuing her Master’s degree in Outdoor Education, and she one day hopes to develop an outdoor program for girls with anxiety and depression that she will call Woodswoman.

For now, when she’s not taking classes or exploring the beautiful White Mountains, you can find her painting about what inspires her most: women in the wilderness. Join us for an opening reception and chance to check out her amazing artwork on January 12, with complementary snacks, and drinks available for purchase.
