Bark Cowl Scarf
“I love the work of artist Sara Barrett. Each scarf is handmade in her US studio and she uses sun to develop her screen prints. A Bark scarf is an eco-conscious and fun addition to any wardrobe!”
- Laura, Shop AGA

MoMA place mat (n)
“The protector of your kitchen table; a piece of art off of which you eat your meals; a fancy addition to a table setting; an opportunity to show your flare and style to your dinner guests; a moment of artistic expression captured in an everyday item; an expression of freedom, joy, and reckless abandon that will inspire you each time you set your bowl or plate atop it; a reminder to live in the moment, trust your impulses, and think outside the rectangular place mat.”
- Kara, Guest Services
Artists and Their Prints: Masterworks from the Museum of Modern Art
“This book featuring prints by famous artists from around the world from the 1850’s onward. For example there are prints by Salvador Dali, Louise Bourgeois, Paul Cezanne, Jim Dine, and Kiki Smith, among many others. Beyond being quite comprehensive in the scope of artists included, the pictures are a decent size and there is a write up on each artist. So awesome!”
- Rachel, Shop AGA
Inuit Women’s Art book
“If you liked the Angakkuq: Between Two Worlds exhibition at the AGA then you will love this book. Find inspiration through the stories of female Inuit artists, learn what they enjoy to create and why. A quote from the book that I found inspiring is the following:
“You don’t just do drawings…you express yourself. It is also a way of life, a part of life. Life is sometimes heavy…you have to be able to express yourself” – Pitaloosie Saila”
- Kara, Guest Services
Fridge Magnet Freud
“Not only is it fun to dress up Freud, but it’s fun to dress up other pictures! Take my dog, for example…”
- Pauline, Curatorial
Twisted Fabric Necklace
“This line of necklaces is like origami with fabric. They are so inspiring and completely handmade. One of each color please!”
- Laura, Shop AGA
