Turning a vacant storefront into a colorful art-filled pop-up gallery each spring, HomeFront’s ArtJam, March 29 to April 16, invites art lovers to experience a double win – buying artworks they love and supporting a good cause.
“The work of transforming lives is central to HomeFront,” said founder and CEO Connie Mercer. “We do more than provide shelter; we help people gain skills for self-empowerment and develop a vision of a better future for themselves and their children.”
One of the ways HomeFront supports this evolution is through ArtSpace, HomeFront’s therapeutic art program, where the creative process becomes a tool for self-expression, critical thinking and problem-solving that can change the lives of the artists.
ArtJam happens in Princeton, N.J., once a year, combining the work of more than 125 professional international, national and local artists with undiscovered artists who have experienced homelessness.
Accomplished artists, including Judith Brodsky, Bill Jersey and Kenneth Lewis, will have their work available for purchase.
The ArtJam opening reception will be held on Friday, March 29, and it is open to the public from 5 to 9 p.m. at 19 Hulfish St., Palmer Square in Princeton.
The gallery is open from Friday, March 29 to Monday, April 16. For hours and a listing of ArtJam events, visit: homefrontnj.org/artjam
