The Voice of Art is thrilled to extend its outdoor juried fine art show, “Litchfield Art Festival,” to its Part  III: Holiday Show” at the Litchfield High School Gym, Litchfield CT 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. 

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. 

The Litchfield Hills

 

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.
