The Community Gallery is located in the lobby of the Attleboro Arts Museum’s Emory Street entrance.  For over a decade the Museum has been pleased to offer this prominent gallery space as an exhibition opportunity for both promising and professional artist members. By showcasing one or more member artist(s) per month, the Community Gallery maximizes the exposure of unique art and contact with Museum viewers.

December 1st – 18th, 2021

10th Annual Art of Celebrating:

Trees Lights and Symbols of the Season

Five Golden Rings by Renée Harding; wool, felt & embroidery.

From December 1st – 18th unique holiday art pieces created and decorated by volunteer artists will be featured during “The Art of Celebrating: Trees, Lights & Symbols of the Season.” Each original piece features a creative take on a traditional symbol or scene of holiday celebration. All pieces will be raffled off to benefit Museum art classes and art exhibitions.  Now celebrating its tenth anniversary, “The Art of Celebrating” has showcased the talents of supportive artists and raised thousands of dollars for the organization.

2021’s participating artists include: Christina Beecher, Bill Clark, Michael Evans, Mim Brooks Fawcett, Renée Harding, Margo Lemieux, Rina Naik, Amy Rhilinger, Abby Rovaldi, Tatiana Roulin, Kerry St.Pierre, and Carol Wontkowski. A charming, winter-themed piece by Attleboro’s famed artist, Barbara Corrigan, is part of the exhibit this year thanks to a generous gift from local painter Missy Riley and collector Al Walker. 

This year’s 15 “The Art of Celebrating” pieces will be posted online starting December 1st. The actual items will simultaneously be on display in the museum’s Community Gallery.

Raffle tickets can be purchased on this site beginning December 1st, in person at the Museum, or over the phone by calling 508-222-2644 x10 (Tuesday – Saturday from 10am – 5pm).
