Ten-2-One Artists

Ten-2-One Artists

Weekly from 10 AM to 1 PM these artists, led by Pat Piscopo, gather to paint for open studio and to share their common bond, art at the Crescent Gallery.

As the magical hours pass, we forget about everything else and let art consume us. There’s a buzz of conversation, sharing of knowledge and lots of laughter. There are moments of silence and extreme concentration too.

As the camaraderie grows so does the number of art works.

You are welcome to join us every Thursday in the Crescent Gallery(Main Street, Thomaston, by the Opera House) from 10AM to 1:00PM. 

For further information contact art@thomastonfinearts.com

The Crescent Gallery announces it's 2018 Gallery Showings (TBA)

The Crescent Gallery of Thomaston is very excited to be entering into its sixth season of displaying local artists and their talents in this quaint and inviting space.  The 2018 calendar offers five gallery shows with themes to coincide with all five main stage productions produced at the historic Thomaston Opera House.

The collaborative relationship between the Ten-2-One artists of the Crescent Gallery and the Thomaston Opera House (TOH) is one born of a mutual love for making and sharing art, design and creativity.  Since 2012, this local group of artists has displayed their artwork in the gallery (once the old firehouse of Thomaston) and has designed their shows around the Opera House schedule of productions.

This year is no different and will prove to be an exciting calendar of shows!
Coming soon! 

Visit the gallery on Thursdays, 10:00am to 1:00pm to meet the artists! Gallery shows are open during Opera House productions, one hour before the shows start.  The gallery is located next to the Opera House Box Office, 158 Main Street, Thomaston, CT.

    Watertown Art League will host renowned oil paint artist Rick Daskam on Monday, November 11 at 7pm. Demonstration will take place at the First Congregational Church, 40 DeForest St, Watertown, in the church hall. It is open to the public and free of charge.

    Mr. Daskam’s paintings have appeared in Art Galleries and Juried Exhibitions throughout the Connecticut and New York area. In 1998, he followed his passion of painting en plein air, and spent his time painting landscapes and farms in the local area surrounding his Southbury, CT home.

    In 2002 Rick first visited Monhegan Island, ME and, like many of America’s most famous artists, fell in love with its rugged beauty and seaside inspiration. Returning every year for a week of “sun up to sun down” painting in oils, the artist has produced some of his most memorable works.

    Currently, Mr. Daskam is co-president of the Hudson Valley Art Association. In 2004 he began entering Juried Art Exhibitions and Museum shows. Preferring to express his passion in Oil, Mr. Daskam’s works have garnered him numerous awards including:
