In keeping with the Chamber’s mission of “Connecting The Community With Commerce” this Calendar was created to allow member businesses and New Canaan based non-profits to promote their upcoming events to the public. The Community Calendar is a local resource for all residents and visitors and has quickly become one of the most visited pages on the site. Events can be submitted via the link below and will be reviewed and posted within 24-48 hours.
SUBMIT AN EVENT
This Spring the Carriage Barn Arts Center, home to the New Canaan Society for the Arts will host its 27th annual Spectrum Contemporary Art Show. Spectrum is a juried exhibition of original, contemporary artwork by local and regional artists, and invites submissions in all media. All entries must have been created within the past two years and not have been previously exhibited at the Carriage Barn.
“SPECTRUM 2017: Grayscale”
This year, guest Juror and contemporary art specialist Adrienne Ruger Conzelman, of ARC Fine Art, is reviewing works rendered in grayscale — black and white and anything in between. The limited palette will give particular emphasis to form, texture, perspective, context and content. Virtually every medium will be considered including: Oil, Acrylic, Photography, Pastel, Drawing, Print, Mixed Media, Sculpture, Assemblage, Installation, Fabric and Video when part of an installation.
NEW This Year: From the accepted entries, the juror will select 6-8 “Artists To Watch” who will be recognized at the opening and throughout the show and who will be invited to participate in a special presentation at the Carriage Barn Arts Center.
On view: Sunday, April 23 – Thursday, May 25, 2017
