New Canaan's Waveny Park Hosts Society For The Arts Exhibition

NEW CANAAN, Conn. – An opening reception for the the Small Works! Art Exhibition, highlighting small scale art, will be held Saturday evening at New Canaan's Carriage Barn Arts Center.

The work on view in the new exhibit is by 50 artists, mainly from Connecticut and New York. It ranges from delicate drawings, paintings, and photographs to finely crafted sculpture and ceramics.

The opening reception will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 1. It is free and open to the public. The gallery is located in Waveny Park in New Canaan.

She is the fifth generation of art dealers in her family and her father, David Findlay, is a longtime resident of New Canaan. 

The co-directors, Arianne Faber Kolb and Eleanor Flatow, selected early miniature works to provide a historical and educational context for some of the contemporary art in the show. 

The exhibit will also include a lecture on Wednesday, Nov. 19, at 6:30 p.m. on “The Confluence of Art, Religion, and Science in Small Works: Past and Present” by Arianne Faber Kolb, executive co-director of the Carriage Barn Arts Center.
