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

The Crescent Gallery announces it's 2022 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 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).

Visit the gallery on Thursdays, 10:00am to 1:00pm to meet the artists! The gallery is located next to the Opera House Box Office, 158 Main Street, Thomaston, CT.

  • Art & Artifacts Open House - September 17th (11 am - 3 pm)

    Art & Artifacts Open House - September 17th (11 am - 3 pm)

    Sep 17th 2023

    The Fine Arts Connection of Thomaston and the Thomaston Historical Museum will be featuring an exhibit called ‘Art and Artifacts’, on Sunday September 17th from 11am-3pm at 158 Main Street Thomaston. There will be two Open Houses in one location, in conjunction with the CT State Fireman’s Convention and Parade. Residents and visitors are invited to explore these two gems in Thomaston.

    The Crescent is a Gallery filled with revolving artworks by FACT’s Ten-2-One Artists. These artists paint and create together every Thursday from 10am-1pm. This picturesque space has a history to its name. In April of 1881, the Crescent Hose Company No.2 housed this firehouse. The number 2 is chiseled in granite outside the door. Inside the Gallery there is a Venetian tower which was functionally important, back in the day, to dry the canvas firehoses. Come and view the inside of the tower with the canvas firehoses and enjoy artistic canvases which fill the walls. This special site is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

    The Thomaston Historical Museum is upstairs on the 6th floor, (which is a short elevator ride away). Take a walk through time and enjoy all the memorabilia. This significant collection is quite impressive and has artifacts to delight your historical appetite that feature antique Seth Thomas clocks in addition to many photographs, period clothing, furniture and exhibits from the time of Thomaston’s founding in 1875.

    Both venues will include a display to pay tribute to our honorable firefighters. Celebrate the day and the Art and Artifacts with us in Thomaston.
