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 had a beautiful day and a wonderful crowd at the Opening Reception for the Juried Art Show! If you couldn’t join us last Sunday be sure to stop by soon and enjoy the fantastic artwork on display. The Arts Center will be open on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays (except Easter) until May 4 from 1 to 4 p.m.
Here’s what the judge, University of Hartford professor Jeremiah Patterson, had to say about the show: The artworks selected for this exhibition display strength in both composition and technique, and it is evident in viewing them that each artist created these works with careful planning and dedication to his/her craft. It was a pleasure to see and select works for this show from such a strong field of entries.
We at Arts of Tolland are saddened by the passing of long-time Board member and dear friend Pat Scholz. Pat joined the Board of Directors in the 1990s, and was president, secretary, assistant treasurer, chair of Art Mart, and founder and chair of the Arts of Tolland Juried Art Show. She contributed to the activities of Arts of Tolland in more ways than we can mention, and we will miss her more than words can express. We have dedicated the 2014 Juried Art Show, which opens on Sunday, April 13, in her memory.
