Art Jam is gearing up for its annual art show and sale just in time for Sequim Lavender Festival weekend.
This year, the show will feature nine local artists and two guest artists — Larry McCaffrey and Mike McCollum — who will display their work from classic acrylic paintings to a 6-foot tall raven woman called, “Our Raven.”
Art Jam will be held in the iconic barn at Rock Hollow Farm at 505 E. Silberhorn Road in Sequim from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily from July 21-23.
This event provides artists or “the barn people” an opportunity to show a variety of artwork including wood work, paintings, sculptures, contemporary jewelry and more.
It also gives guests the opportunity to see new artwork, watch live demonstrations and bring out their inner artist by adding to the graffiti wall or community painting.
“We have a fairly large following coming every year,” said Ed Crumley, long-time contributing artist and Art Jam participant.
“For (the artists), we have fun with one another and guests are like friends now.”
In addition to the art on display, there also will be music under the apple tree on the property and a flash mob that may make an appearance on Sunday, July 23.
Susan Gansert Shaw, Rock Hollow Farm owner, said while some people in the community come specifically to buy artwork at the event others come to experience the feel-good energy.
“We all have fun,” Shaw said. “It’s just a good feel.”
Last year, Art Jam painted a piano that is now on display at the Sequim Civic Center for Keying Around. This year, Shaw said the group’s contributing project was a painted chair for Habitat for Humanity that will be on display at the event.
