405 works from 195 artists are on view during the Attleboro Arts Museum’s annual Members’ Exhibition through January 28th, 2022. The exhibition, an annual tradition, is presented in-gallery at 86 Park Street in downtown Attleboro, MA.

Members’ Exhibition

A popular and unique Attleboro Arts Museum member benefit is the opportunity to annually exhibit up to three original works of art in the Museum’s Ottmar Gallery during the organization’s Members’ Exhibition. In the spirit of the Museum’s tagline – Arts for Everyone – all work is accepted into this exhibition. 2021 guest juror LaiSun Keane, owner of LaiSun Keane Gallery located in Boston’s SoWa district, has awarded cash prizes, art materials certificates and commendations of merit to outstanding artists.

About the Juror

LaiSun Keane graduated with a Bachelor of Art Theory from University of New South Wales, Sydney Australia and went on to work with the non-profit gallery, National Art School Gallery, and the commercial art gallery, AAG, which specializes in Australian Aboriginal Art. She moved to Boston in 2013 and launched LaiSun Keane Art Gallery in April 2020.  Laisun Keane Gallery provides a platform for non-mainstream voices. Since inception, the gallery has staged 14 exhibitions of artists with diverse backgrounds and narratives.

Reception/Open House: December 11th, 2022

The exhibit’s traditional opening awards reception, that typically welcomes over 200 guests, will be modified for health concerns this year.  From 1pm – 4pm on Saturday, December 11th a reception/open house will take place in the museum’s Ottmar Gallery.  The event is free and open to the public. All guests are required to wear masks throughout their time in the museum, the reception has been extended by one hour to help mitigate congestion, refreshments will not be served as a safety precaution, and there will be no gathering for reception announcements to allow for distancing. 

Despite these measures, that have been implemented with some variation on all receptions since 2020, the Members’ reception/open house is sure to be a strong celebration of the museum’s creative community. 

The Ray Conniff Foundation has funded live music during the entire event performed by singer/songwriter Brady Dallas Jones, guests will find labels identifying award winning art in the gallery starting at 1pm on December 11th, “The Art of Celebrating” will be on view in the museum’s Community Gallery, and the Gift Shop Holiday Extravaganza will be underway. The event is free and open to the public.  RSVP by December 10th to office@attleboroartsmuseum.org or 508-222-2644 x10.
