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
Enduring Series

In the beginning, I painted simply to convey the beauty of a view, but over time I have learned that a painting is more effective when its aesthetic beauty is coupled with a deeper meaning. I want to give voice to the landscape as I interact with it and as I explore my relationship with it. As I go from initial sketch to final painting I love to explore how color and light and form can tell a story without words. I spend a lot of time pondering various themes that might seem unsuited to landscape painting. However, with time and deep wells of inspiration that bubble to the surface in quiet moments I find ways to express personal experiences and feelings through seemingly mute clouds, land, and water. I try to find a way to tell my own story in paint.

This current body of work comes from an abiding faith I have held dear since I was a child. As I’ve grown older and added more noise to my life I often feel that the heavens are like brass above my head. When the heavens do open it is like sweet rain falling on a thirsty garden. These paintings are a way for me to express some of those feelings and some of the ways I hold onto my faith in times of darkness or confusion. I have chased this idea by using the sky as a metaphor in most cases. I hope that as I share these paintings they may be a statement of my hope and unwillingness to let go. I am calling this my Enduring Series. I hope it will resonate with others as they consider their own wrestle with faith and commitment to things that are true but not seen.     – Erin Spencer
