About the Attleboro Arts Museum’s Gift Shop

The Gift Shop features an innovative mix of handcrafted items by local/regional/national artists and artful, cutting-edge manufactured items. Partial proceeds from the purchase of a handcrafted item supports the artist that created the piece as well as the Museum – while sales from mass produced items benefit the Museum. In all cases, your purchases are supporting and endorsing the arts.

The Shop maintains a popular selection of unique house wares, jewelry, accessories, greeting cards, innovative toys, ceramics, original art, books and more. It is famous for annual expansion “extravaganzas” during December and March/April.  These special shop days feature additional creative products and are linked to major Museum events.

The Museum thanks Trustee Marion Volterra and volunteer and Eileen Struminski for serving as our Gift Shop angels.

Supporting the Community

The Attleboro Arts Museum has established many collaborations with local agencies and non-profit 501(c)3 organizations. We believe that our community will strengthen when groups of concerned citizens work together and support one another. One way the Museum supports community agencies is by selling products (books, cards, holiday gifts, etc.) created by a local organization in the Museum Gift Shop.  If you are interested in learning more, please download our Museum Gift Shop/Community Partner Guidelines.

WHY SHEEP?

I’ve been painting Jacob sheep for 18 years. When I began, I had no idea that they would engage me as a visual subject for such a long time. When I started painting them, I get a charge from the results of the combination of my hand, the medium and the subject. One thing that has evolved through the making of them is that I’ve mostly eliminated any identifiable background. The flat color background accentuates the negative space of the composition, which the sheeps’ horns, legs and body positions create in endless ways. 

 

Sheep are often one of the first images we see in our lives. Think of all the nursery rhymes and children’s stories that involve or are about sheep. In my case, one of my very first memories is of painted wooden cut-outs of Little Bo Peep and her sheep that my mother had hanging above my crib. I can envision that room and how that “art” was hung to this day. Maybe you, too, have some kind of formative vision in your mind about sheep. Or maybe you connect with them for another reason. Either way, my hope is to engage those who view my sheep paintings on some artistic or emotional level.

–  Carolyn Letvin
