NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- The 36th annual members' show for New Canaan's Carriage Barn Arts Center has kicked off the major events at the center this fall. 

The members' show, which showcases paintings, drawings, prints, photography, mixed media and sculpture by artist members from Connecticut and New York, will continue through Sept. 29 at Carriage Barn Arts Center. Many of the pieces from the exhibition are offered for sale, according to a press release from the group. 

In October, the center will open "The Barn and Beyond," an exhibition of original work not previously exhibited at Carriage Barn Arts Center. The exhibit begins with an opening reception at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 11 and continues for three weeks from Oct. 12 to Nov. 2.  

"The theme of the show reflects the historical significance of the gallery space and celebrates the noteworthy collection of barns in New Canaan and the beauty and relevance of these iconic structures throughout America," representatives said in a press release. "A curated historical overview of the Carriage Barn and a visual photographic survey of barns in New Canaan will serve as an introduction to works by a diverse group of artists. In addition to representations of barns and elements associated with these structures, sculptures relating to the barn theme, i.e. animals, will be considered." 

For more information, residents are asked to visit the Carriage Barn Arts Center website or call 203-972-1895.
