The Fine Arts Connection of Thomaston

Facebook Twitter


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.

Thank you Thomaston Savings Bank for choosing the Fine Arts Connection of Thomaston (FACT) as one of many grant recipient’s in the bank’s 20 Ways in 20 Days.

FACT President Dennis LaPlante accepts the grant check from the Thomaston Savings Bank Information Technology team on December 1st.
