The Clinton Art Association was established in 1949 by a small group of professional artists dedicated to growth of the arts along the Connecticut shoreline. The CAS has become a vibrant influence on the arts in Connecticut and its members represent towns across Connecticut and throughout New England. Member artists work in all fine-art media including painting and sculpture. Their collective talents bring styles ranging from traditional to abstract.
