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 has received a $25,000 grant from the Connecticut Office of the Arts to help fund ArtZfest 2013 in collaboration with the Arts and Culture Round Table.
The Fine Arts Connection of Thomaston has again received a $25,000 grant from the Connecticut Office of the Arts to help fund ArtZfest 2014 to be held on May 16 and 17 in collaboration with the Arts and Culture Round Table. Watch for more info to come.
