9SOLOS, nine one-person shows in mini-galleries in the Betty Barker Gallery at the Carriage Barn Arts Center, opens with a reception from 4 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, March 17.

The show features the work of members of the New Canaan Society of the Arts, which makes its home at the Carriage Barn, 681 South Ave. It will run through April 17. Artists' Talks will be announced.

Three New Canaan residents are solo artists. Lucienne Buckner's detailed small bronze sculpture depicts an incongruous relationship between animals and antique furniture.

Elizabeth Nagle's abstract paintings are based on the psychological phenomenon called Pareidolia, a human tendency to make sense of patterns and random information.

Marjorie Tomchuk's abstract compositions are embossed hand-made paper prints with airbrushing.

Two Wilton artists are exhibiting. Lucy Krupenye's formal wall relief sculpture incorporates natural found materials including rusted metal, bones and wood. Amy Schott's delicate mixed media wall relief incorporate maps and fine wire in evocative complex linear arrangements.

Bobbie Bernstein, of Westport, will exhibit a black-and-white photography essay, "My Name is Zoe."

Kathryn Poch, a Stamford artist, is showing intensely hued abstract landscape painting in oil on paper.

Ken Scaglia, of Weston, exhibits highly detailed photo-realist acrylic paintings using automobiles for his subject.

Pound Ridge, N.Y., artist Renata Manasse Schwebel's formal abstract metal sculpture belies its playful inspiration -- the popsicle stick.

The nine artists were chosen from a call for proposals by Lydia Viscardi, gallery director and curator, and Robbin Zella, the director of the Housatonic Museum of Art.

Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. For information, call 203-972-1895 or visit www.carriagebarn.org.
