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 Arts of Tolland Craft Show will be held on Saturday, September 19, in conjunction with Tolland’s 300th Anniversary Celebration. The show runs from 11-5 and will be held at Tolland Middle School, 1 Falcon Way. We are accepting applications from crafters now! Go to the Craft Show page on the website (listed under Events) to download an application.
As part of Arts of Tolland’s participation in Tolland’s 300th anniversary celebration we are presenting a special art show that opens Friday evening, May 8 – Dead Artists Society: Tolland Artists of the 19th and 20th Centuries. The gallery will feature the work of nearly a dozen artists who either lived in or near Tolland, or who painted in Tolland, in times gone by. Some were professional artists, some were talented amateurs. The one thing they all have in common is that they are no longer with us, but their paintings have lived on.
The gallery will be open on Wednesdays from 2 to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. through June 6.
Tickets are going fast 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.
FREE LUNCH! Download and send in your order form right away, because only those orders received by May 26 will qualify for a free lunch provided by the Country Butcher, Banner Water, and the Tolland Inn.
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.
