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.

The Fine Arts Connection of Thomaston (FACT) will hold an ‘Art Around the Hall’ event on Saturday, May 18th from 10:30 am to 3 pm at the Thomaston Town Hall, 158 Main Street. The free event centers around the theme “Find the Time.” All day activities include an art show featuring paintings by the talented FACT Ten-2-One Artists and photos by the gifted FACT Camera Club, a ‘timely’ Photo Booth, Child’s Fairy Garden, Find the Time Match Game, Find the Time Search, Sidewalk Chalk, and Bubbles.

From 11-12, White Memorial Foundation will present a program featuring live animals: owl, salamander, and a snake or turtle in the Crescent Gallery. An Art Pour by artist Patricia Ward will be held in the Gallery from 1-3, while attendees listen to music provided by folk musician, Tom Turci.

Sunflowers 4 x 8

The Ten-2-One Artists and some passer-byes have painted these sunflowers.
In fact, artists across the world have been painting sunflowers to show solidarity for Ukraine. According to a 1993 Encyclopedia of Ukraine, in the context of war, sunflowers signify that Russia will not crush Ukraine’s spirit. This public art piece was created to journey forward to bring awareness.

The Artists of Fine Arts Connection of Thomaston hope that a business, organization, or person would be interested and willing to publicly display this tribute and coordinate donations to help the people of Ukraine.

For more information, visit the Crescent Gallery any Thursday from 10 am to 1 pm and meet the artists.
