In the Gallery
We are fortunate to have a beautiful gallery at our Library featuring a rotating 6 week art exhibition juried and curated by the Art Committee of New Canaan Library. The gallery, the art within, and our dedicated volunteer committee make the H. Pelham Curtis Gallery truly special. This is the ideal place to discover new local artists.

HAND WORK BUT NOT HOME WORK: THE ART OF LIZ ALPERT FAY
February 16 – March 26, 2017
New Canaan Library presents “Hand Work but Not Home Work: the Art of Liz Alpert Fay” on view in the Curtis Gallery from February 16 to March 26, 2017.
The work of Liz Alpert Fay, while exactingly crafted, pushes the boundaries of hooking by making it fine art. The artist will sit for months with an idea before beginning a new piece, thinking and feeling it through so that it will convey a message. Her work preserves something of the past as it also calls our attention to more contemporary concerns.
