Arts of Tolland Building

Welcome to the Arts of Tolland

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.

Bluesgrass at the Arts Center on March 19

The acoustic duo BluesGrass features two experienced musicians who have been steeped for many years in American roots music, including blues, old-time, folk music, and bluegrass (especially its “bluesy” side and its mountain modal sounds). Both are accomplished singers, and their voices blend in close harmony along with strong and evocative instrumental accompaniment. They draw upon both contemporary and traditional sources for a well-rounded acoustic music experience.

We’re pleased to welcome them to the Arts Center of Tolland on Saturday, March 19, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10, or $8 for members of Arts of Tolland. It’s open seating, but you can reserve your ticket by calling us at the Center at 860-871-7405, or email us at Or just go to the Contact page here on the website.

Hope to see you. Just think! Daylight Savings Time begins the previous weekend, so it will still be light at 7:00 when you arrive. Now THAT is a cheery thought.

Art Scholz Exhibit Opens on March 5

AOT friend Art Scholz, who has been described as the premier watercolorist of New England, will be exhibiting at the Arts Center during the month of March. A former commercial artist, Art retired to Tolland many years ago, and we are indeed fortunate to have him share his work with the community via the Arts Center of Tolland.

Art’s exhibit opens on Saturday, March 5, at 10 a.m. There will an opening reception from 1 to 4 p.m. After that, the gallery will be open on Wednesdays from 2 to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. until March 26.

Computer Glitch Fixed

The last time you visited our website you would have seen a post about a computer problem we’d been experiencing. We hate to tempt fate by saying it out loud, or in this case putting it in writing, but we believe that the glitch has been addressed. If in the future, however, we don’t respond to your email in a timely fashion (3-5 days) give the office a call at 860-871-7405.
