The Barn and Beyond is a juried exhibition of original work in all media, not previously exhibited at the Carriage Barn Arts Center. The theme of the show reflects the historical significance of the gallery space and celebrates the noteworthy collection of barns in New Canaan, and the beauty and relevance of these iconic structures throughout America. A curated historical overview of the Carriage Barn and a visual photographic survey of barns in New Canaan will serve as an introduction to works by a diverse group of artists. In addition to representations of barns and elements associated with these structures, sculptures relating to the barn theme, i.e. animals, will be considered. The wonderful soaring space of the Carriage Barn Arts Center, which once housed carriages and horses for Waveny House, will become animated and reactivated through a vibrant selection of artwork, creating a vision of the barn as a physical reminder of the past and its adaptive reuse within contemporary culture.
The opening is free and open to the public.
