Our Annual Events:
Art in the Country
Our juried regional Fine Art show.
Adult Member Art Show
An opportunity for all members of the Arts Council to display their artwork.
Over the past 23 years, Easton Arts Council Readers Theater has earned a reputation for presenting offbeat, literate material, and razor-sharp satire. Long time fans of the series have learned to expect the unexpected.
Regional Juried Photography Exhibit
This show highlights the natural beauty of our area. It is open to all and prizes are awarded.
Taste of Opera

Young Writers Competition
An annual event for students from Easton and our neighboring towns (Redding, Newtown, Monroe, Trumbull, Fairfield, Westport & Weston). Writers are asked to submit “Your most memorable Hometown Experience,” real or imagined. Entries can be prose, poetry, play or screenplay; each entry is evaluated on originality, quality of writing and interpretation of theme.
The Nancy White Memorial awards:
4 awards are given annually to students who exhibit career potential, creativity and originality in the fields of visual and performing arts. Two awards (one for visual arts and one for performing arts) are given to 8th graders & two awards (one for visual arts and one for performing arts) are given to 12th graders.
Our annual "Scenes of Easton" calendar is produced from a selection of our photography show entries.
"The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity."
