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 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.
