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!

Paintings by Derek Raymond 

Exhibition: July 2nd – 30th, 2021

Museum Gallery Hours: Tues – Sat from 10am-4pm (closed Saturday, July 3rd)

___________________________________________________________

“My current work is largely informed by the rudimental aspects of graffiti, with an emphasis on extracting and further manipulating unrefined aesthetics of both vandalism and vandalism removal processes,” comments Derek Raymond.

This series is intended to develop an abstract focus on removing the attribution elements from style writing, and simultaneously combine slivers of these marks with shapes and styles found in vandalism cover-up and removal processes. The paintings in this ongoing body of work are an effort to nod to both these directions as well as achieve an unintentional balance in composition. Most of these works are intentionally unnamed and based largely in a primary palette. Holistically, the ambition of his work is to dissect the urban landscape, and through developing a unique abstract visual language, pay homage to quintessential elements of city life.

Derek Raymond is a graphic designer and self-taught mixed media artist based in Providence, RI. After discovering graffiti as a teenager, various practices of self-expressive mark making and learning the history of outsider arts became an obsession that would set the course of his adult life. Meeting other artists across subcultures gave the opportunity to soak up knowledge, paint together, and deepen his personal relationship with art. This led to studying graphic design and earning a bachelor’s degree in graphic design and digital media from Johnson & Wales University.

Derek has begun a thoughtful move to his studio painting practice. He strives for refinement and development of his personal style. His work is now largely inspired by time spent traveling, reading, writing, photographing, and experiencing urban culture and nightlife around the world.
