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’re thrilled to welcome Tolland native and top-flight percussionist Tom Arey back to town! After graduating from Tolland High in 1996 he went on to Berklee in Boston and has been playing professionally ever since. He’s bringing to the Arts Center his friends and fellow musicians the Duke Levine Band, featuring Duke Levine on guitar, Marty Ballou on bass, and Joe Barbato on keyboards/accordian.
Come celebrate the first day of spring and join us for an evening of jazz/pops/blues down at the Arts Center on Friday, March 20, at 7:00 p.m. Tickets ($8 for AOT members, $10 for non-members) will be available at the door or by calling the Arts Center at 871-7405.
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 Opening Reception will be held on Friday evening, March 6, from 5 to 7 p.m., and Jack’s exhibit will be open on Saturdays from 10-2 and Wednesdays from 2-5 through March 28.
