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.
We are so pleased to announce that our exhibitor for the month of March 2015 will be well-known Tolland artist Jack Broderick. Although Jack has traveled, taught, and painted in Europe, Latin America, and Asia, his home is here in northeastern Connecticut, and he considers New England images a challenge and joy to paint. Knowing his affinity for sights and scenes in and around Tolland we invited him to exhibit as a special treat for Tolland residents as we celebrate Tolland’s 300th anniversary.
The date for the Opening Reception is still to be determined, but Jack’s exhibit will be open on Saturdays from 10-2 and Wednesdays from 2-5 through March 28.
Be sure to put Arts of Tolland’s 12th Annual Juried Art Show on your spring calendar! The show will open on Sunday, April 12 with an Opening Reception from 1 to 4. Gallery hours will be from 1 to 4 on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through Sunday, May 3.
Artists, the application form will be ready in late January or early February. Keep watching for all the details, but note that collection days will be on Sunday March 29 and Monday, March 30.
After the busy, busy week leading up to Art Mart 2014 and a wonderful weekend (and just as busy) wreath sale, we at Arts of Tolland will be setting down for a short winter’s rest. January will find us beginning preparations for our annual Juried Art Show. Artists, check the website for entry forms in February. In March, Tolland artist Jack Broderick will be exhibiting at the Arts Center, and the Juried Art Show opens April 12.
May and June 2015 will bring a special exhibit coordinating with Tolland’s 300th Anniversary. We will be selecting artwork that was created by men and women from Tolland’s past, some of them Tolland artists and some out-of-town artists who “summered” and painted here. It will be an interesting collection, ranging from what might be described as American primitives, but including some excellent Hudson River stylings.
