For the ninth year, the New Canaan Society for the Arts and New Canaan High School are partnering to present Through Our Eyes, an exhibit of select works by current art students at the Carriage Barn Arts Center.  A new addition this year, the exhibit will also feature a juried selection of work by NCHS Alumni working across all media. 

“This annual exhibit showcases and rewards the work of talented New Canaan High School students working in a variety of mediums,” says Hilary Wittmann, Executive Director of the Carriage Barn Arts Center.  “We’re excited to incorporate the work of alumni as well, to highlight their artistic achievements and provide a link between current students and alumni actively practicing the visual arts.”

Through Our Eyes IX celebrates the skills, creativity, and personal voice of high school art students enrolled in introductory, intermediate and advanced art courses, including photography, digital media, drawing, painting, printmaking, jewelry and filmmaking taught by visual arts faculty Kimanne Core, Jeanne McDonagh and Jennifer Sinski.

New Canaan High School graduates, from the classes of 1967 – 2019, will also be included in the exhibit along with information about their creative journey and artistic endeavors since graduating.  

The Through Our Eyes IX art exhibition is presented by the New Canaan Society for the Arts and generously sponsored by Anderson Kenny Architecture, Bankwell, Handwright Gallery & Framing, HTG Investment Advisors, William Raveis Real Estate and The Fritz Eager Foundation for Art Education.  

Several pieces are available for sale starting at $75.
