Ray and Vera Conniff in their Hollywood home.

 

From February 15th – 22nd, 2019 the Attleboro Arts Museum will exhibit objects and artifacts representing the prolific career of musician, composer and conductor Ray Conniff. Born and raised in Attleboro, MA, Conniff’s artistic and commercial achievements spanned over sixty years and touched listening audiences throughout the U.S. and abroad.    

The exhibition, A Backstage Tour – Ray Conniff Memorabilia and Memories, is presented in partnership with the Ray Conniff Foundation. Highlights include Conniff’s 1966 Grammy Award for his version of “Somewhere My Love,” the theme from the movie “Doctor Zhivago;” ten gold albums; letters to Conniff from Walt Disney and Neil Armstrong; and his beloved trombone. Assorted clips of Conniff’s American Top 40 hits will be available at listening stations.   

A Backstage Tour offers a never-before-seen look at Conniff’s personal collection and launches a year of live music at the Attleboro Arts Museum.  The Foundation is sponsoring live music from Attleboro-area musicians of all ages performing a range of genres at the Museum’s upcoming programs and events.

About Ray Conniff

From his beginnings as a trombonist/arranger during the heyday of swing working with Bunny Berigan, Bob Crosby and Artie Shaw, to his acclaim as the leader of his own band, Ray Conniff was among the few musicians to have had a successful career that spanned 65 years. He recorded over 100 albums and sold over 70 million albums. He was the proud recipient of a Grammy Award for his recording of “Somewhere My Love,” two Grammy nominations, over 10 gold albums, multiple platinum albums (“Somewhere My Love” and “We Wish You a Merry Christmas”), and countless international awards. His catalog sales surpassed those of Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin. Best known for his work as The Ray Conniff Orchestra and Singers, Conniff was one of the few commercially successful musical icons.

Members’ Exhibition Juror Christine O’Donnell

Christine O’Donnell, the Owner and Gallery Manager of Beacon Gallery, opened Beacon Gallery after over a decade spent living and working in Paris, Hong Kong, and Singapore. While living abroad, Ms. O’Donnell honed her eye for art in museums and galleries and also befriended local artists. Representing  talent from the Boston area as well as Europe and Asia, Beacon Gallery, located in Boston’s SoWa neighborhood, aims to connect emerging and mid-career artists with new and established collectors and institutions from around the world.

Ms. O’Donnell has juried many shows around greater Boston for galleries, art associations and museums and has been invited to serve as the 2018 Members’ Exhibition guest juror.  She will review all of the work on display and select a total of 24 award winners.  

 

2019 Members’ Exhibition Juror’s Statement

Having the opportunity to jury this show was a great honor. This is a very strong show with many pieces deserving of awards – I was delighted that I was able to give out so many. Still, there were many more pieces that I appreciated but was not able to award (alas!). When jurying a show, I search for what I call  “mastery, novelty or differentiation” – and I saw all of these qualities many times over in this show. I loved the diversity of the media I saw represented as well as the multitude of perspectives. Thank you all for sharing your talents with the world – being able to create art is such a gift, and it was a delight to take part in this process with you – you should all be proud.

Warning: Use of undefined constant addtofacebook - assumed 'addtofacebook' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in /home/kerrystp/public_html/wp-content/themes/ArtsMuseum/category.php on line 14

 

 

The Attleboro Arts Museum is honored to commemorate the life, work, and exceptional talent of artist Edmonia Lewis by launching the Edmonia Lewis Art Education Scholarship. The scholarship is funded by The Reynolds Family and the Museum and is open to African American children, teens, adults, and adult/child pairs. It is administered by The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Committee of Greater Attleboro.

 

The Edmonia Lewis Art Education Scholarship is designed to assist students in obtaining visual art instruction and exposure to the wonders and challenges of art and art-making. No previous experience in an art studio is required to apply. 

 

The Review Committee typically selects 1-4 full tuition scholarships per year.  Art classes will range in size from a one-day workshop to a multiple-week, hands-on art studio experience.  Please keep in mind that the first Edmonia Lewis Scholarship will be awarded for the WINTER 2019 session.  

 

____________________________

About Edmonia Lewis

Edmonia Lewis was the first sculptor of African American and Native American descent to achieve international recognition. Her father was African American, and her mother was Chippewa (Ojibwa) Indian. Orphaned at an early age, Lewis grew up in her mother’s tribe.

 

In 1859, she attended Oberlin College in Ohio, one of the first schools to accept female and black students. She developed an interest in the fine arts, but an accusation of poisoning, believed to be racially motivated, forced Lewis to leave the school before graduating. She traveled to Boston and established herself as a professional artist, studying with a local sculptor and creating portraits of famous antislavery heroes.

 

Moving to Rome in 1865, she became involved with a group of American women sculptors and began to work in marble.

In addition to creating busts, Lewis sculpted biblical scenes and figurative works dealing with her Native American heritage and the oppression of African American people.

Warning: Use of undefined constant addtofacebook - assumed 'addtofacebook' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in /home/kerrystp/public_html/wp-content/themes/ArtsMuseum/category.php on line 14

The Attleboro Arts Museum’s “8 Visions” Exhibition

A prestigious, annual group show spotlighting 8 member artists.

  • To apply to be considered for “8 Visions,” artists must exhibit work in the Museum’s Members’ Show and complete an “8 Visions” application. (Typically mid-November is the time for submitting artwork and applying for “8 Visions” consideration.)
  • Our Members’ Show guest juror then reviews the artist’s Members’ Exhibition submission(s) and invites up to 20 applicants to submit a digital portfolio of 12 works for further review. New guest jurors will then choose the 8 artists for the “8 Visions” exhibit held each summer.
  • If selected, “8 Visions” artists will have the opportunity to exhibit approximately 8 works in the Museum’s Ottmar Gallery for a month-long group show.  Exhibited work must never have been shown at the AAM.

Attleboro Arts Museum Teen Docents lead museum tours and educational experiences for children and families.

Teen Docents are volunteers that come from all backgrounds and interests, but they all share a common passion for art and engaging with children and families.

All docents will receive free training from Museum staff. No prior museum experience is required.

This program is open to students in grades 9 – 12.

The Teen Docent Program is a community service opportunity. Participants gain service credit during the summer and school year.
