A National Juried Exhibition

Attleboro Arts Museum – 2021

Real or imagined?  One might wonder these days.  These challenging times are complicated, unfamiliar and defying our norms. 

As we make our way forward, the Attleboro Arts Museum invites artists throughout the US to submit works of original art in any medium, size or concept that respond to the theme of Real or Imagined. For instance, artists can reflect on the nature or quality of this moment, spotlight the authentic, explore the unreal or depict items that contain some/all of the above. 

Consider a representational still life or a surrealist scene … the phenomenon of phantom pain … AstroTurf landscapes …

Plastic surgery

Ghosts

World Wrestling Foundation

Love

No homework

Historical fiction

Beauty

Gold bullion

Costume jewelry

Santa Claus

Fat-free foods

The Emperor’s new clothes

A tested vaccine in 2021

Online Bidding with Bidsquare

The Attleboro Arts Museum’s annual Benefit Art Auction is one of the Museum’s largest fundraising events of the year.  All proceeds from the Auction support the Museum’s community arts programs, exhibitions, operations, and Museum School art classes for all ages.  2020 marks the event’s 29th consecutive year, and although inevitable changes have been put in place to accommodate current health and safety mandates, the mission and strong appeal of the Auction remains firmly in place. 

VIDEO: 29th Benefit Art Auction!

221 donations of original art as well as specialty items will be on the block with bids starting at approximately 40% of the value of each item. These pieces were given to the Museum by artists, collectors and businesses.  Organizers report that this year’s quantity of donations is the second highest on record with highlights ranging from a dynamic oil painting of Wickford (RI) Marina to hand-painted animation cels from Walt Disney Studios.  All donated pieces will continue to be part of an in-gallery Preview Exhibition offering potential bidders a chance to see and familiarize themselves with each item. The Preview Exhibition launches in the Museum’s Ottmar Gallery at 10am, EST on Tuesday, October 6th and runs through November 6th at 3pm, EST. 

At the same time, the Auction can be viewed online through the Museum’s new Benefit Art Auction platform – Bidsquare.  Bidsquare has worked with over 100 top-tier auction houses and antique dealers to promote and sell original art through their virtual bidding site.  Since this is a new platform for the Museum this year, all those interested in bidding will need to register for both the Museum’s live and timed auction formats, even if they have participated in past online Museum auctions. All bids must be placed online this year.

The Auction’s customary, ticketed, in-gallery event will convert to two online bidding sessions with “free admission.” Guest auctioneer Chris Barber of Skinner, Inc. returns to conduct a livestream of 30 of the 221 auction lots on Friday, November 6th at 7pm , EST. One “timed” auction (formerly known as the “silent” auction) will close beginning at 12pm on Saturday, November 7th. Join us and thank you for your support!

And don’t forget to purchase tickets for the Auction’s extraordinary raffle items!
