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.

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.

A Digital Art Series by Debra Maher

Exhibition: September 4th – 28th, 2019 

Museum Gallery Hours: Tues-Sat from 10am-5pm

 

 

Artist Statement

Nature exhilarates Debra’s Maher’s imagination with all the colors, shapes and patterns it has to offer. For this particular series, she focused on her visit to Yellowstone National Park as inspiration.  The time of year is early autumn with color of deep yellows and golds, bold greens, rich reds and burnt umber offset by splashes of unexpected turquoise.  The patterns are often small and intricate, especially when set against environmental shapes that are expansive and at times otherworldly.

 

“As I experience a place, I take photos and make mental notes about what has sparked my imagination. Then I sketch with pencil on paper to understand the natural forms, as well as the essence of what it is I wish to capture.  When it comes to creating the actual piece, I pick up my stylus and Wacon tablet to begin ‘painting’ digitally. As I work, I’m thinking about the marks I’m making and how I make those marks when I use traditional media, such as pastel and gouache. It’s a combination of both traditional and digital that I look to embrace.  Working digitally while thinking traditionally allows me to be more expressive and less constrained; as it is expressiveness over realistic depiction that I hope to achieve.”

– Debra Maher

 

 

Biography

Southeastern Massachusetts-based illustrative designer Debra Maher loves to be outdoors—taking photos and making notes of what has visually caught her eye. Back in her studio, she sketches to form a visual dialogue of shape, pattern and color; from which she interprets into a graphic representation of her inspiration that is fueled by a strong affinity for printmaking and surface design.

 

A designer for over 25 years, Debra naturally gravitates to digital media, using a Wacom tablet and stylus to create her artwork. All the while, she remains keenly aware of her mark-making when using traditional media. It is the combination of working digitally while thinking traditionally that she ultimately embraces, with a final outcome that begs the question, “what medium is that?”
