High School Students are WELCOME!

The Voice of Art is thrilled to invite you to its second annual outdoor juried fine art show, “Litchfield Art Festival 2022.”  This show will be a highlight for collectors and residents from the Tri-State region, New England and beyond.  The Litchfield Hills have a history and reputation of featuring top fine artists from across the country, and also many well-known and beloved New England and CT artists who are widely admired by art enthusiasts.  

The Town of Litchfield in the rolling hills of Northwestern Connecticut is a truly an historical town. Recently celebrating its tri-centennial, it is where George Washington met with Colonel Tallmadge during the Revolutionary War.  History is treasured here, as evidenced by the meticulously restored homes and the classic village greens.  Its shops and restaurants, set around the historic green and immediate area, contribute to the 18th century New England town atmosphere.  But at the same time, proximity to Manhattan keeps this corner of Connecticut contemporary.  The Litchfield Hills are a popular escape for city folk, who in turn have helped raise the bar for restaurants and accommodations in the area — turning what has long been a destination for antiquers into a haven for foodies, as well.  Its shops and restaurants, set around the historic green and immediate area, contribute to the 18th century New England town atmosphere.  And, of course, the beautiful rural setting that includes Bantam Lake and the White Memorial Conservation, offers many outdoor activities.  

The Voice of Art is thrilled to announce its very first outdoor juried fine art show, “Litchfield Art Festival” that will be a highlight for collectors and residents from the Tri-State region, New England and beyond.  The Litchfield Hills has a history and reputation for featuring top fine artists from across the country, and also many well-known and beloved New England and CT artists widely admired by art enthusiasts.  Attracting thousands of visitors, the festival will provide an exciting platform for artists to engage with attendees and sell their work.

With DOUBLED visibility and accessibility, TVOA is committed to offering its best promotional efforts to present featuring artists’ high-quality work for maximum results.  To responsibly meet this time of challenge, TVOA will organize this live art event in a hybrid venue – both in-person and virtual through multiple digital channels – to reach a broader audience and ensure the public health and safety.  TVOA will encourage optimal participation by delivering interactive, digital excursions for viewers. 

Town of Litchfield, the Litchfield Hills

 

The Town of Litchfield in Litchfield County is a scenic country town, nestled in the rolling green hills of Northwestern Connecticut.  Truly an historical town, recently celebrating its tri-centennial, it is where George Washington met with Colonel Tallmadge during the Revolutionary War.  History is treasured here, as evidenced by the meticulously restored homes and the classic village greens.  Its shops and restaurants, set around the historic green and immediate area, contribute to the 18th century New England town atmosphere.  But at the same time, proximity to Manhattan keeps this corner of Connecticut contemporary.  And, of course, the beautiful rural setting that includes Bantam Lake and the White Memorial Conservation, offers many outdoor activities.  The Litchfield Inn, centrally located in Litchfield, right off the main road (Rt. 202) with high visibility, offers easy access to the Festival site, along with beautiful views and a sense of historic and classic New England charm.
