NEW CANAAN — Some of the finest work in the area was celebrated and presented Sunday afternoon when the Carriage Barn Arts Center held a gallery opening for its 40th annual Members Show.

There were 170 artists represented, including a local 10-year-old sculptor named Hawley Hewitt.

“It’s a great opportunity for local artists to hang their work and get together,” said Cricket Benevento, event and program manager.

“We’re really excited,” she said. “There’s so much talent in the area.”

The show is on display through Oct. 7.
