NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- New Canaan's Carriage Barn Arts Center opens "The Big Show", an exhibition by Weston artists Drew and Audrey Klotz, with a reception on Saturday, Nov. 9, from 6 to 8 p.m.
Drew Klotz's vibrant kinetic sculptures will activate the interior space of the gallery in harmony with Audrey’s oversized abstract paintings.
Both are natives of Fairfield County and their work is in international collections. Drew Klotz’s sculptures can also be seen in front of local institutions, such as the New Canaan Library and Wilton Library as well as the Silvermine Art Guild.
Part of his philosophy is that art should be accessible; one has to touch it to activate it. Kinetic sculpture is an assemblage comprised of parts designed to be set in motion by an internal mechanism or natural stimuli, such as the wind or touch.
The show runs through Dec. 15. A “Pop Shop” in the gallery will have smaller works by the artists for sale.
The Carriage Barn will be hosting a children’s workshop in conjunction with the exhibition on Sunday, Nov. 17. The fee is $15 per child. Space is limited. Email here to register or call 203-972-1895.
