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, volunteers Eileen Struminski, Jessie Murphy, Barbara Ottmar and our great team of gift shop helpers!

Community Gallery: October 2021

Drawings by Joshua Baptista

Exhibition: October 2nd – 29th, 2021. Exhibit closes at 4pm on 10/29.

Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 10am-5pm

Artist Statement:

“This series is a search to discover what exists between reality, fantasy, the unknown, and the general uncertainty in creating a meaningful reflection of life in a global pandemic. There is an undeniable parallel between the familiar yet distorted structures and architecture, and the psychic distress of sitting alone with our uncomfortable thoughts, shrouded in grief, confusion, and turmoil. I see these pieces as my living reactions to environmental chaos conveyed carefully on soft, torn paper,” remarks Joshua Baptista. 

The process of making each piece for the artist is highly intuitive, with every move informing the next until it starts to evolve into a space that looks familiar. The creation of these realms is reminiscent of the careful solitary crafting of an old blanket or quilt with the stark black ink weaving in and out like a uniting thread constructing a new reality. 

Biography:

Born and raised in Boston, MA, artist Josh Baptista completed his BFA at Montserrat College of Art in 2002. Josh subsequently pursued his MFA from American University in Washington D.C., graduating in 2009. Primarily a painter, Josh also mixes various media to create a parallel world filled with strange, mercurial, and innocently curious creatures. Heavily influenced by his roots in the 90’s skateboarding and street art scenes in New England, Josh projects a hesher mindset in his pieces, but does so with a wit and sharpness that illuminates the beauty in the oddities. Josh currently lives and works in Providence, RI. For more information and artwork visit www.joshuabaptista.com
