  • Exhibition: June 16th–July 14th, 2023
  • Opening Awards Reception: Saturday, June 17th, 2pm – 4pm

The Attleboro Arts Museum has invited U.S. artists to submit interpretations of “USED” in all mediums, sizes and concepts. For instance: “I only read used books; she used me and broke my heart; that high-rise apartment used to be a lush garden; used clothing shops are my go-to; I’ve gotten used to their dry humor.” 

Thank you to all artists have submitted works of art for consideration. After careful review by juror Russell LaMontagne of LaMontagne Gallery, SoWa, Boston, the following works have been accepted.

Please be sure to check the title of the work that was accepted. Note that some artists that submitted two works have had both accepted. The Attleboro Arts Museum will only exhibit the exact work(s) of art that the juror has chosen. Be sure to deliver the correct piece(s) – thank you.
