Welcome to Arts of Tolland’s website! 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.
The 14th Annual Arts of Tolland Juried Art Show opens on Sunday, April 9, at 1:00 p.m. Prizes will be announced at 1:30, and over $1500 in prizes will be awarded.
Even if you don’t consider yourself an artist or even a lover of fine art this show has something for everyone – beautiful landscapes, contemporary abstracts, still lifes, and more. The subject matter ranges far and wide, from peaceful water scenes to Alaskan mountains to zebras and horses and birds, oh, my! And a cow.
After the exhibit opens the Arts Center will be open on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 1 to 4 on April 14 through April 30.
Arts of Tolland will hold a multi-family indoor tag sale on Friday, May 19, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Saturday, May 20, 9 a.m. to noon. It’s inside the Arts Center, so come check out the bargains rain or shine!
Malarky, a jazz/pop quartet made up of Tolland High music students, appeared at the Arts Center in March, and they were fantastic! Could not believe that these were high school kids! We hope to have them back again, so watch for the announcement.
Each year, AOT awards two $1500 scholarships to graduating seniors who live in Tolland and are intending to advance their education in the fine arts. We are proud of the fact that so many scholarship recipients are now working in the fields of music and art, graphic design, dance, creative writing, and other fine arts areas. Past AOT scholarship winners include a published poet, a professional drummer, and an opera singer.
The application is due before May 8, 2017. The form is available at the Arts Center, the Tolland High guidance office, and below.
