Katie Blundell is inspired by the details of everyday life. She uses her knowledge of color and composition to explore impactful themes. Currently, her favorite inspirations are abstraction, portraiture, and graphic design. Bee and Debbie Bradford are a mother-daughter team who have showcased their original, money-saving ideas on television, in newspapers, and in book form.

With Gratitude

For the past 5 years volunteer artists have created original pieces of art to honor the Attleboro Arts Museum’s generous Benefit Art Auction sponsors. Working in their unique style, the artists have conceptualized items that either feature the sponsor’s industry, brand or product. Each sponsor receives one of these custom works and a biography of the artist as a token of the Museum’s sincere thanks and appreciation. 2020 Artist: Jackie Cabral Jackie Cabral of Attleboro, MA is a full-time professional in a high-tech environment – a job that involves meetings, schedules, and deadlines. Painting mandalas is her creative outlet. Jackie’s mandala designs begin with a single dot and evolve into a circle made up entirely of dots. She uses a variety of objects to create her designs, such as crochet hooks, dowels, and stylist tools. In her art, Jackie tries to capture a sense of serenity and balance. Each of Jackie’s designs is a unique pattern, rich with depth and expression.
