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.
Tickets are now on sale for the Tolland Green Historic House and Museum Tour! We’re excited that AOT is one of the sponsors of the tour, and proceeds will benefit AOT, the historical society, and the Hicks-Stearns Museum.
The House and Museum Tour was put together as part of Tolland’s 300th anniversary celebration. Thirteen homes and museums on the Green are included, and the buildings date from the 1700s and 1800s. Participants will pick up their tickets and lunches at the Arts Center (Tolland’s first town hall, built in 1879) and can view a special art exhibit prepared for the 300th anniversary – Dead Artists’ Society: Tolland Artists of the 19th and 20th Centuries.

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.
Jack’s exhibit will be open on Saturdays from 10-2 and Wednesdays from 2-5 through March 28.
