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 Crescent Gallery 158 Main St. will be open September 12, 1- 4 pm during Thomaston’s 30th Annual Summer Cruise (car show). The artists have been ‘revving up’ for this event with a special selection of car/truck related paintings. Come meet the artists and see their work.
There will be children activities.
Any purchase in the month of Sept. at the Crescent Gallery, will support local artists and the Thomaston Police Explorers. Donations will also be welcomed in a tip jar for the Explorers as they ready for the Police Academy. Special thanks to the Fine Arts Connections for making this all happen.
