Torrington is experiencing a renaissance as its downtown revitalizes. Starting with the restoration of the historic Warner Theatre, the city has committed to transforming from its industrial past with ambitious plans to be an arts destination.
Leading the charge is Five Points Gallery. Started as Artspace Torrington in 2011, Five Points Gallery found a permanent home in 2012 on the corner of Water and Main streets in a space filled by light through floor-to-ceiling windows.

Danielle Mailer has always been a "more is more" artist. The figures in her paintings not only leap, bound, exult and alight, but they are painted in vibrant, primary colors, usually executed in Mailer's trademark dot patterns.
Mailer's new exhibit at Five Points Gallery in Torrington offers plenty for the Mailer enthusiast magnetized by her dizzyingly pointillist application of color. Those familiar with her work will be cheered by Mailer's continued examination of other materials, primarily metal, onto which to apply her surrealist evocation of the exotic, fanciful and feminist.

TORRINGTON > A new downtown art show opening Friday by artist Danielle Mailer brought many locals out of their homes despite of the bone-chilling weather. Snow was still piling up on the street, but it was just heating up inside Five Points Gallery.

Five Points Gallery in Torrington is fast becoming one of the most exciting new art galleries in the region.
The store-front gallery along Torrington's Main Street has always had pluck and dash, but in August it added a spacious second gallery commensurate with its manifest commitment to showcasing contemporary art. Virtually all of the artists it has shown have been from this area, and the most electrifying artist it has found so far appears to have been hiding under its noses.
