HomeFront’s ArtJam will transform a storefront on Palmer Square in Princeton into a pop-up art gallery bringing together professional artists, undiscovered artists who have experienced homelessness, and the community at large in a celebration of creativity.
Now in its ninth year, ArtJam has grown to over 100 participating artists, including Judith Brodsky, Jon Sarkin and Cynthia Groya. Works from these well-known artists will be displayed alongside the works of HomeFront clients who have limited means but enormous talents.
“If you visit, you can feel good twice,” says Ruthann Traylor, Director of ArtSpace/Sewing Space. “You can buy art you’ll love, and you can feel good that the money you spend is going to a cause you can believe in—helping homeless families get back on their feet.”
ArtJam benefits ArtSpace, HomeFront’s innovative therapeutic art program.
The ArtJam opening reception on Friday, April 13 is open to the public from 5 to 9 p.m. at 19 Hulfish Street, Palmer Square in Princeton.
The pop-up gallery will feature a rotating collection of art for sale and meet-and-greets with the artists. A wide variety of unique creations will be displayed, including paintings, pottery, glassworks, jewelry, and hand-sewn items from SewingSpace, another HomeFront art program.
Gallery hours are Monday through Wednesday, 12 noon to 6 p.m.; Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.; and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. The gallery is open from Friday, April 13 to Sunday, April 29.
