Milestone: ARTjam auction raises food bank funds

One magical donation: Sequim’s ARTjam artists created a drop-leaf table “combining the creative spark of the jam’s eight members” to auction off during the mid-July event during Lavender Weekend, with all proceeds going to the Sequim Food Bank. Here, from left, Andra Smith, Executive Director of the Sequim Food Bank, accepts the $859 raised from ceramic artist Linda Collins Chapman and visual artist Susan Gansert Shaw. ARTjam was held July 15-17 at Rock Hollow Farm. For more about the group, visit
