The focus of the exhibition will be on artwork that incorporates or highlights found, natural or recycled materials. The Carriage Barn is a perfect example of a sustainable space that has been adaptively reused within a landscape (Waveny Park designed by Olmsted) that has also been preserved as open green space. This provides the ideal environment for exhibiting artworks using found materials in novel and experimental ways.

The juror is Anne von Stuelpnagel, the Director of Exhibitions at the Bruce Museum in Greenwich, Connecticut. Since 1993, she has been responsible for the design and production of the Museum’s 12-14 annual exhibitions. The show is curated by Co-Directors Arianne Faber Kolb and Eleanor Flatow.

The exhibition is sponsored in part by Baldanza, New Canaan Wine Merchants, Karl Chevrolet, April Kaynor Homes, New Canaan Lions Club and New Canaan Foreign Car.
