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.

Welcome 2022 to a new slate of officers to the Fine Arts Connection of Thomaston:

CAROL PYTEL – President
IAN JONES – Vice President
ROB ROSS – Secretary

On Sunday, May 8,1-4 pm there will be an Open House at the Crescent Gallery,158 Main St Thomaston. The Ten-2-One Artists will present their new show, Behind the Scenes. Visit the Crescent Gallery this Mother’s Day and enjoy refreshments and meet the artists. The show can also be viewed every Thursday, 10am-1pm during open studio sessions.

It’s been said ‘every picture tells a story’. This exhibit focuses on an artists’ vision and the journey of creativity. The Ten-2-One Artists were encouraged to post a synopsis of their inspiration next the artwork. Learn the process of what sparks art, and how an idea is transformed into a painting.

The Ten-2-One Artists have been together for ten years. Their talents have grown and blossomed. This exhibit includes a 4’×8’ canvas in progress. These artists are working together painting a field of “Sunflowers for Ukraine”.
