Through Our Eyes, a collaboration between the Carriage Barn Arts Center and New Canaan High School, reflected the New Canaan Society for the Arts’ renewed commitment to enriching our community’s teen experiences through art. The Exhibit, showcased from March 13 – April 16, 2011, engaged many local residents, bringing a new awareness of NCSA and the Carriage Barn.
The show featured 80 works by 50 students enrolled in AP Studio Art, Advanced Digital Media, Documentary Photo, and Studio Art taught by Jeanne McDonagh and Lisa Floryshak-Windman. Three seniors in the show, Joveto De Carvalho, Henry Eschricht, and Zack Zannini were regional winners of the Scholastic Gold Key Award for their photography portfolios and were in the Scholastic national competition.
Zack Zannini’s color image “Gabe Meets Wall” was recently awarded First Prize in the student category by Juror Susan G. Hammond in the 31st Annual Photography Show at the Carriage Barn. “Through Our Eyes” also included work by New Canaan students Kyle Isherwood, Patricia Kilbride, Cameron Lancaster and Dylan Neuhaus.
Many thanks to the shows Benefactors: Nancy Rauscher and Jeb Walker, Halstead Property of New Canaan, Karl Chevrolet, and the New Canaan High School Parent Faculty Association.
