Welcome to Arts of Tolland’s brand new website! We’re still getting some of the kinks out, but we’re pleased to finally be on line. It is our hope that you will make us one of your “Favorites” and check out AOT activities regularly.
Arts of Tolland is pleased to welcome John Tomasetti to the Arts Center in November. A talented watercolorist and retired schoolteacher, he comes to us from western Massachusetts and is a past winner in the Arts of Tolland Juried Art Show. The Opening Reception for John’s gallery will be on Sunday, November 3, from noon to 4. Galleries will run on Wednesdays, November 6, 13, and 20, from 3:30 to 6, and on Sundays, November 3, 10, 17, and 24, from noon to 4.
Don’t forget to pick up the holiday wreath for your front door and do a little shopping at Art Mart, coming up the first weekend of December. Our hours are 3 to 6 on Friday, December 6, and 10-5 on Saturday, December 7. Our wreaths are all originals, hand-crafted by some talented people who really know their way around a glue gun. And many of them also know the names of all the dried weeds, flowers, berries, and fruit they are using to create wreaths that you won’t see at the grocery store. There will be a craft show, too, featuring some of your favorite local artists as well as some new talent we’ve discovered. See you then! Read more about Art Mart under the Events tab.
If you would like to volunteer to help us make wreaths come on down to the Arts Center all week, Monday through Friday, December 2-6, from 9:30 to 2. We provide the wreaths, glue guns, bows, and dried materials; you provide the design talent. Coffee and snacks are on us. Hope to see you there!
