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.
Thomaston Savings Bank Foundation comes through again!
We are extremely greatful to the Thomaston Savings Bank Foundation who have again partially funded the Thomaston Summer Concert Series 2016. With their financial support and yours we can provide another 9 weeks of free live music!
Thank you to all of our fellow music lovers who came out to see our artists and performers for our 2016 Summer Concert series.
Keep an eye out for our two winter concerts as we wait for funding approval for those concerts.
