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 AOT Craft Fair on the Green will be held on Saturday, September 17, from 10-4. There is still time for crafters to apply! The deadline is August 31.
Get an early start on your holiday shopping. We will have all types of crafts – pottery, jewelry, doll clothes, quilts and other fabric arts, quilling, fused glass, and others. So put September 17 on your calendar!
We are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2016 Arts of Tolland scholarships, which go to Tolland graduating senior(s) who will be pursuing further education in the fine arts. This year’s AOT scholars are Estelle Yorgensen and Travis Tran from Tolland High School, and Dana Rudnansky, who graduated from East Catholic.
Estelle will be heading off to UCONN to major in photo journalism, and Travis to UHart to major in music education. Dana is headed to Wagner College in NY to study vocal performance.
Arts of Tolland usually awards one or two $1500 scholarships, but this year awarded three, thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor who wishes to be acknowledged only as SISU. Many thanks to this donor for his generosity and support of the fine arts.
Congratulations to our three scholarship winners!
By the end of June the Arts Center will have hosted Shannon Gerrity’s photo exhibit and several piano recitals. Although the Center is available for rental during July and August, it’s not air conditioned, so Arts of Tolland doesn’t schedule any events. But that doesn’t mean we won’t be busy! Preparation for the Craft Fair on the Green has already begun, so mark your calendars. Crafters, keep those applications coming, and everyone mark your calendar for Saturday, September 17. See you then!
