NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- Waveny LifeCare Network and the Carriage Barn Arts Center collaborated on a specially curated selection of the Carriage Barn’s recent "For the Birds" exhibit. It is now on display in Waveny’s front lobby for residents, patients, families and guests to enjoy.
The nine-piece mini-collection called “Birds at Waveny” features both literal and abstract avian interpretations, and is the first installment in the Carriage Barn’s plan to rotate art at Waveny on an ongoing basis. Waveny’s residents welcomed the colorful collection and new non-profit partnership at an intimate evening, “Resident Gallery Opening.” The opening included Carriage Barn leadership and several featured artists who discussed their pieces, techniques and inspirations.
The mission of the New Canaan Society for the Arts is to promote the visual and performing arts, to enrich the community through exhibitions, education, and cultural experiences, and to operate the Carriage Barn Arts Center. The Carriage Barn Arts Center offers artists opportunities to exhibit their work in a beautiful gallery space in a unique nineteenth-century stone barn.
Exhibits, lectures and educational workshops, concerts and other events are held in its adaptively re-used historical building on the grounds of a former estate, now Waveny Park. The Carriage Barn is open September through June, Wednesday-Saturday, 10-3 p.m. and Sundays 1-5 p.m. Entrance to the gallery is free and all exhibitions are open to the public.
