A Benefit Concert Celebrating the Attleboro Arts Museum’s Centennial

Friday, September 22nd, 2023. Doors open at 7pm.

Attleboro Arts Museum, 86 Park Street, Attleboro, MA

Tickets will go on sale in July 2023.

The Attleboro Arts Museum presents a benefit concert to honor the organization’s 100th anniversary.  The concert is a reprise of Sound Relationships, a performance originally held in 2016, that featured the artistry of parent/adult child musician teams.  The 2023 event is called Sound Relationships – An Encore Presentation.

The concert’s essence runs parallel to the Museum’s multigenerational impact. For decades the organization has been cultivating the next generation of visual artists through vivid exhibitions, art classes and cultural programs.  Sound Relationships also demonstrates how creativity can be passed down and the beautiful process of nurturing emerging talent.  

Four acclaimed musical families will perform:

Monica and Amy Ambroziak – with Karl D’Souza

The lead vocalist for The Bob Demers Group, Monica Ambroziak has been a driving force in ensembles including the a capella group Paper Dolls and the 18-piece group the Funky White Honkies. With over 30 years of singing experience, Monica raises the roof regardless of the venue. She sings eclectic mix of jazz and blues, pop, R&B, and a little of everything in her own style.

Amy Ambroziak is a violinist that surrounds herself and her audiences with thoughtful folk, country, and blues music. Amy will be accompanying her mother Monica along with her husband, Karl D’Sousa (on guitar).

Louis Leeman and Jeri Karam Kozak

Louis Leeman is a singer, songwriter, guitarist who lives in Swansea, MA. He has been a member of the Southeastern New England music scene since the 70s and has had the opportunity to play gigs you wouldn’t believe – both good and bad. The good ones have been getting to be the opener for Tom Rush, John Mayall, Leon Russell, Darrell Scott, and others. These performances were at The Narrows Center for the Arts in Fall River, MA. Leeman’s most recent CD “Same Age, Time and Town” is available through HearNow and can also be heard on Spotify, YouTube, etc.

Jeri Karam Kozak is the lead singer in Deja Blue, a popular band in the Fall River/New Bedford area. She also performs original songs in a duo with her father Louis Leeman. The duo can be seen on YouTube with their performances on The Artists’ Corner and The Michael Troy Tribute at The Narrows Center for the Arts.

Mike, Trish and Kelce McLernon

Mike McLernon has been playing music since 1969 and he enjoys it more with each passing decade.  He loves to play standards from the piano titans of years past, like Billy Joel and Elton John.  He also enjoys playing the timeless music of Vince Guaraldi of Peanuts fame.  He will be joined by his wife Trish and daughter Kelce. 

K E L C E is an accomplished musician who writes R&B-inspired pop as a way to understand and connect with the world. She has two EPs and several singles that can be heard on most streaming platforms including Spotify, Apple music, itunes and her YouTube channel.

Andy and Aksel Solberg

A consummate musician, Andy Solberg performs regularly on guitar, vocals, violin, and bass. He also plays keys, drums, trumpet, and steel pedal guitar. For 25-some years, Andy has been lighting up listening rooms in the Boston-to-Cape Cod area with his guitar virtuosity. Equal master of the Telecaster, archtop, or acoustic, he’s a musician’s musician. 

Aksel Solberg is a guitarist/vocalist/songwriter for the rock, blues, funk, progressive and alternative band The Franklin Underground.

The concert date is Friday, September 22nd and doors open to the public at 7pm. There will be an exhibition on view in half of the Museum’s Ottmar Gallery and the remaining half will be open for the concert.  This multi-disciplinary event is emblematic of the Museum’s cultural programs.

Alexander Ciesielski – Director, Guild of Boston Artists

Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, Alexander Ciesielski studied Art History and English Literature at New York University before pursuing a master’s degree in art history from Boston University, specializing in 19th and early 20th century French and American Painting. After working for both the BU Art Galleries and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Alex was named director of the Guild of Boston Artists in 2017 and has served the organization for the past 6 years. With deep understanding of the organization’s 100-year legacy in Boston, Alex has stewarded the historic art gallery through the COVID pandemic and into the 21st century through his tireless commitment and dynamic vision, distinctly reinvigorating the cultural mainstay both inside and out.     

About the Guild:

The Guild of Boston Artists is a nonprofit art gallery promoting representational painting and sculpture of enduring beauty by leading New England artists. Established in 1914 by the prominent painters of the day, including Edmund Tarbell, William Paxton and Frank Benson, the Guild of Boston Artists was created to be an artist owned and operated gallery. With the mission of promoting both emerging and established artists living in the region, the Guild developed a reputation for excellence in quality and presentation.

Anita Loomis – Artist and Founder, Loomis Gallery

Founder of Loomis Gallery, Anita Loomis, is an accomplished professional artist who also has many years of experience working in professional art establishments, in public service administration, and in art education.  She worked in the field of architectural stained glass from 1995 to 2007, then pursued public administration work while developing her professional artist practice as a painter. 

She established Loomis Gallery in Kittery, Maine, in 2020. Anita describes the gallery as “mini but mighty,” making the most of limited space to offer a variety of contemporary art by herself and other accomplished local artists. She curated exhibits in 2022 for her own gallery as well as several at the Ogunquit Playhouse in Ogunquit, Maine. Through her gallery, she forged a partnership with the Ogunquit Playhouse to bring local visual art to the theater. In 2023, Loomis will focus on studio art instruction for adults. 

She has exhibited her paintings in watercolor and oil widely since 2008. She was a core artist with Fountain Street Gallery of Boston and is an active member of several New England art associations. Anita also serves her community in Kittery, Maine as a member of the Kittery Community Center’s Visual Art Committee.

Public art enlivens and enhances cities and can turn public spaces into destinations.  Weaving visual art into an urban environment by offering public art encounters brings people together, creates pride-of-place and invites engagement. 

A collaboration between the City of Attleboro, Transformative Development Initiative (TDI) Partnership, Keep Attleboro Beautiful, Attleboro Arts Museum, local artists and a downtown property owner has been activated to transform the surface of Attleboro’s sidewalk utility boxes into gallery-worthy works of art.   

The Fungus Among Us by Abby Rovaldi appears on a utility box in Attleboro’s Gilbert Perry Square.  This photo is a rendering of the completed Phase 1 box.

Original drawings, paintings and digital creations from a team of artists that live and/or work in Attleboro encase six of the city’s utility boxes in the heart of the downtown. All of the artists, Tim Elliott, David R. Laferriere, Lindsay Nygaard, Abby Rovaldi, Kerry St. Pierre and Jess Tracey (Think Outside the Box Phase 1) have volunteered their time and talent to support the program.  This generosity applies to both Phase 1 and Phase 2 artists.

Each box is marked with a QR code. When viewers scan the code with a smartphone camera they’ll find a statement about the artwork pictured on a given box, background on each artist and an online survey to capture their feedback on the program.

This debut edition of Think Outside the Box serves as a pilot program.  It’s funded by the City of Attleboro, Keep Attleboro Beautiful and a private donation. Organizers hope to expand the program throughout the city and turn other basic, functional structures into contemporary, eye-catching street markers.

SHARE YOUR FEEDBACK! Let us know your thoughts on Think Outside the Box. Complete this brief survey:

Sponsorship opportunites for additional boxes are available.  Email to learn more. 

Think Outside the Box is produced by (in alpha order): Attleboro Arts Museum, Lisa and Darren Baldwin, City of Attleboro Department of Public Works, City of Attleboro Veteran’s Department, Cool Air Creations, Inc., Consigli, Rick Correia, Laurie Drucker, George Durante, Catherine Feerick, Mim Brooks Fawcett, Mayor Paul Heroux, Brian Hodess, Kathy Ilkowitz, Keep Attleboro Beautiful, Mass Cultural Council, Transformative Development Initiative Partnership – Attleboro, MA.
