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.

“dressproject…” Series by Virginia Fitzgerald; Photography on aluminum 

Exhibition: April 3rd – 30th, 2019

The Museum is closed on Saturday, April 20th

Gallery hours are Tues – Sat from 10am-5pm

 

 

“With the dress I discovered my voice, the dress became my soapbox from which I could initiate a dialogue, engage in political debate, question social protocol and excavate my authentic self.” — Virginia Fitzgerald 

 

Virginia Fitzgerald is a passionate artist for whom life and art merge, which is reflected in all of her work. The objective of her art is to inspire others, urging them to think about their everyday lives, examine their surroundings, and revisit their thoughts, beliefs, and expectations. Fitzgerald achieves this through a multitude of media and series of work, one of these series being her “dressproject …” 

 

Fitzgerald’s “dressproject …” began in 2006 in Wells Beach, ME and since then Fitzgerald has created, designed, and built over a thousand of “artdress’es.” Fitzgerald has reinterpreted the dress form in a myriad of media and materials, such as; vcr tape, rope, asphalt, ice, rubber gloves, etc. Her “dressproject …” includes sculptures, photographs, ephemeral dresses, installations and performances.  The “dressproject …” has also prompted a “dailydress …” blog, Facebook group and products, such as “dresscard’s,”  featuring origami dresses with empowering quotes and messages.  The “dressproject …” has led to collaborative projects where Fitzgerald works with different organizations,  encouraging the participants to bring new ideas, experiences and emotions to the project. 

 

Fitzgerald’s “dressproject …” is relevant to the current issues being debated today. Fitzgerald sees the dress form as a symbol for one’s essential being, their core.  The work speaks to the emotional or lack of emotional connection between people. This body of work touches many people regardless of gender, age, background and experiences, and Fitzgerald strives to create a safe place for them to reconsider their place in the world.

 

As an artist, Fitzgerald is dedicated to making art that is provocative, that makes the viewer stop and think, art that will prompt a reexamination of an idea or belief. She is a champion of passion, individuality, and inspiration. Fitzgerald works and lives outside Boston with her two daughters in a house full of love and creativity. She is constantly observing, questioning, and exploring her surroundings.  To learn more about Virginia Fitzgerald please visit:
