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 Bethlehem Public Library will host a showing of art by the Ten-2-One Artists. The exhibit can be viewed during regular Library hours from June 19 thru July 28.
The Ten-2-One Artists gather every Thursday from 10am to 1pm at the Crescent Gallery in Thomaston. Side by side, they paint and share their common bond….art ! As the camaraderie grows, so does the number of artworks. “On the Bright Side” focuses on the bright, colorful, cheerful side of life.
