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.

Elements of Design, this year’s summer show at the Gores Pavilion in Irwin Park, opens on May 11th. It features the work of four New Canaan High School seniors–Timothy Scranton, Eliza Pohle, Kate Lindberg and Sammi Smith. All artists are students in the Advanced Placement Studio Art 3-D Design class taught by Jeanne McDonagh. The exhibit examines line, color, texture and perspective.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to show the work together,” says Nancy Geary, Executive Director of the Historical Society, who helped to curate the show. “Tim’s imaginative work has a retro feel very much in keeping with the mid-century Pavilion. Eliza uses color in exploring architectural form and detail. Kate’s imaginative pieces play with cubism. And Sammi’s bold images are striking uses of line and color.”
The exhibit opens with a reception on May 11th from 5:30-7:30 pm and will remain on display through August 15th. The Gores Pavilion is open Friday-Sunday 11 am-3 pm or by appointment. For more information or to RSVP to the reception, please call 203-966-1776.
