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!

A Series of Egg Tempera Paintings by Theresa Pedrotti

Exhibition: January 8th – 28th. Exhibit closes at 4pm on 1/28.

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

Portrait of My Mother, egg tempera on panel.

Artist Statement

“I have always practiced figurative drawing and portraiture and for this show I have been working on compositions of my mother and my daughter. These have been very personal and incredibly difficult for me. All lines are beautiful, all colors are beautiful, all contours. When attempting to depict a specific individual, it’s easy to get those lines, colors and contours completely wrong. Both my mother and daughter have an incredible presence and I want to make sure that viewers can see how beautiful they are when looking at their paintings,” comments Theresa Pedrotti.

Theresa employs a lot of adding and subtracting when working with egg tempera on a panel.  The process of etching into and scraping paint away, and cutting into the plaster gesso is a process that can take a great deal of time. She creates her own pigments by grinding rocks, minerals, and colored earths with files, knives, mortar and pestles, and water. “My pigments are often rough – I’m more of a cave painter than a Renaissance style tempera painter, and while I do appreciate fine grained pigment, it’s not my focus. Similarly, I love egg tempera as a medium, but smooth, clean, luminous layers that are usually associated with egg tempera aren’t the reason I use it. I use it because it is very direct – separate, roll and dry an egg yolk, mix in water and pigment, and work,” remarks Theresa Pedrotti.  She also uses charcoal, graphite, commercial red, violet, and white paints as well as collage, found objects and other natural materials in her pieces.
