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.

“Pyrography and Pastel” Coming in March

It may not be spring yet, but here at the Arts Center we are looking forward to our first spring art show, Pyrography and Pastel. The works of these two talented artists are exquisite, and you will not want to miss this show.

Ailene Hoffman is a pyrographer. To paraphrase the commercial, this isn’t your father’s woodburning. The detail and artistry in her pieces are wonderful. Likewise, Elizabeth Rhoades is a pastel artist whose paintings have been exhibited near and far. We met her first here at the Arts Center many years ago, and we are delighted to have her exhibiting with us again.

The Opening Reception is on Friday, March 2, from 6 to 8 p.m. The Arts Center will be open on Saturdays between 10 and 2, and Wednesdays from 2 to 5 until March 24.
