The Attleboro Arts Museum is truly an oasis in the desert!  It has the largest gallery space (The Ottmar Gallery) between Providence, RI and Boston, MA.  It has an incredibly talented and dedicated professional staff of professional artists that work very hard to offer ever changing fine exhibits, day and evening classes for adults, classes and summer camp programs for children, and plenty more fun for Everyone!  The staff consists of:  Executive Director (Mim Brooks Fawcett), Office Manager (Susan Erwin), Museum's Program Coordinator (Abby Rovaldi), and Technology/Administrative Coordinator (Patrick Garriepy).  This is truly a fine and fun place for Everyone!  Please, click on the link above to learn more.

My greatest  " Thank you "  under  "The Umbrella of The Arts" is to Mim (Mim Brooks Fawcett)! Shortly after discovering the Museum, I applied for a particular exhibit and received a standardized typed rejection letter. I felt crushed and rejected as an artist. However, Mim had hand written in the margin of the letter a little note of hope for me.  Mim hand wrote, "Try for more opportunities.  Best - Mim".  I contemplated. If it wasn't for that little bit of hope, and Mim's greater faith in me than my own faith in myself as an artist, you would not be reading this and I don't know where or what I would be doing right now. I certainly would have thrown in the towel and moved on in a totally different direction away from the arts.  So I ask, how can I help you and the Museum, Mim?

The Attleboro Arts Museum's credo is "Arts for Everyone.".  You don't have to be a Picasso to have your personal art exhibited.  You don't even need to have a degree in art.  It just takes a bit of courage to share your art.  Try taking a course under an MFA's direction at the Attleboro Arts Museum to challenge yourself and develop some courage.  Check out the costs for courses.  You'll find the Museum's  courses to be extremely affordable, especially since the Museum is a non-profit organization.
