The mission of the New Canaan Society for the Arts, Inc. is to promote the visual and performing arts, and to enrich the community through exhibitions, education, and cultural experiences, and to operate the Carriage Barn Arts Center.
The Carriage Barn Arts Center is a welcoming, inclusive arts center nestled in a 19th century stone barn on the grounds of the former Waveny Estate in New Canaan, Connecticut, which encourages creative expression, celebrates artistic achievement, and seeks to enrich the community as a whole. The Center is home to the New Canaan Society for the Arts, a member-supported, non-profit cultural organization.
The Carriage Barn is open September through June, Wednesday – Saturday, from 10 am – 3 pm and Sundays from 1 – 4 pm. Entrance to the Gallery is free and all exhibitions are open to the public.
