13th Annual Juried Art Show ends on a high note!

The AOT 13th annual Juried Art Show was terrific! We opened on Sunday, April 10, and distributed over $1500 in awards. It’s a terrific show!

The judge this year, nationally- and internationally-known artist Sandra Wakeen, was particularly impressed with the submissions for this show, describing it as one of the most diverse shows she has ever juried. She cited the “sheer beauty and expression” of some pieces as well as the “careful craftmanship” of others.

You can check out the list of winners by clicking on the Events page, Juried Art Show. Be sure to watch for applications for the 2017 show in late January or early February. See you next year!

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.
