BRETTON WOODS, N.H.- - The Appalachian Mountain Club’s Highland Center at Crawford Notch is the setting for the exhibition, Woodswoman, on display from January 12, 2019– March 30, 2019, in the Mt. Willard Dining Room. An opening reception is set for Saturday, January 12, 2019 from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m with dinner available for purchase that evening. The exhibit is free and open to the public when the space is not otherwise in use.

Dori Bergman’s artwork features colorful and whimsical scenes of wilderness adventures. Dori draws inspiration for her artwork through the dream of using the outdoors to help people. With a degree in Wilderness Therapy and pursuing a master’s degree in Outdoor Education, Dori is working to create a magical outdoor program for young girls with anxiety and depression.

The exhibit is one in a series of displays of art work depicting a sense of place in the White Mountains. Each year AMC welcomes 3-4 artists to show their work spirited by the dramatic landscape of this area.

With extraordinary artworks by masters such as Thomas Cole, Albert Beirstadt and Frank Henry Shapleigh, Crawford Notch has a long standing tradition of attracting landscape painters to capture the allure of the White Mountains on canvas. AMC recognizes that modern day artists reflect similar connections to the landscape in their own style and honors present day landscape artists by offering the opportunity for them to share their craft and inspiration.
