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.

Artist Statement: 

I am a backyard naturalist who keeps a pair of binoculars and a notebook by my chair so I can record the happenings in the backyard and fields of my family homestead.  I am drawn to study and explore the shapes, colors and textures of the natural world.  My art is filled with images of birds, flowers, rock formations and landscapes.  I draw inspiration from my collection of leaves, sticks, fallen eggs, nests and feathers, stones, bones and fossils.  I find such beauty in their delicateness.  Whether I am working with acrylics, collage or monotype, the techniques of layering and over glazing from my decorative painting background remain a major influence in my work.  Each layer adds depth and richness to the work.  Although I begin with a sketch each piece evolves as the layers are added.  I love the surprises that occur as each unfolds a new piece of the story and exposes a little of the previous one.  It is such an exciting moment when the last layer is unveiled and you know it is perfect!    

– Susan Clarke
