Since its inception in 1996, the vision of the Fine Arts Connection of Thomaston has been to create an organization dedicated to promoting the varied expressions of creativity in the realm of fine arts. One focus of this vision is to expose adults and children alike to the many diverse forms of art that exist in and around Thomaston, CT such as theater, music, dance, writing, painting, photography and many more.
It is recognized that the arts serve to assist a person in experiencing a greater satisfaction with life, either as a member of an audience or as a participant. The audience can listen to or observe and absorb what the artist has presented, while the participant can express his or her inner soul through the music, camera eye, dance, or canvas. No matter how one experiences the arts, experiencing them is paramount to one’s enjoyment of life, for life, in itself, is art.
The Fine Arts Connection of Thomaston presents Renditions Gallery Show, featuring a special exhibit of paintings by Don Clark, Jan 9 – Feb 26, 2020 at the Crescent Gallery, 158 Main Street, Thomaston, CT

Fund Raiser Slated
The Ten-2-One Artists have painted slate tiles for the Railroad Museum of New England (RMNE). These slate tiles were saved from the original 1881 roof of the Thomaston Railroad Station. Each artist has hand painted and signed their slate. These slates will be on display at the RMNE gift shop starting September 20th. All slates are to be sold for $20 and all proceeds go to the RMNE.
“We have had fun creating these, and making new friends at the Railroad Museum. It was great to see how each artist approach their slate design — each one is so unique. By purchasing one, you’ll get a piece of art and a piece of history” Pat Piscopo said.
Visit the new Ten-2-One Artists website to read about the artists and see the beautiful artwork that these people have created….just beautiful!
