HomeFront’s ArtJam 2024 Returns to Princeton this May!

Gallery to Support Artists and Local Families Experiencing Housing Insecurity

April 5, 2023 – LAWRENCEVILLE – HomeFront announces the exciting news that ArtJam 2024 launches on Friday, May 3 at 45 Hulfish Street, Palmer Square, Princeton and remains open until May 18. With more than 75 artists represented, the annual “pop-up” gallery will feature the work of national and local professional artists as well as undiscovered artists who have been impacted by poverty and homelessness. The one-of-a-kind artwork for sale includes paintings, sculptures, pottery, glass, and hand-sewn items.


ArtJam 2024 is an inspiring, high-energy celebration of creativity and community that benefits HomeFront and its innovative therapeutic art and sewing programs, ArtSpace and SewingSpace. HomeFront is a nationally recognized social service organization for low-income Mercer County residents who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.  It provides 35 programs that promote safe secure housing, life skills and educational support, and basic necessities, with a special focus on children.


Among the ArtJam events will be a Fashion Show by HomeFront’s SewingSpace participants at the Arts Council of Princeton, 102 Witherspoon Street, on Saturday, May 11 from 3:00-4:30 pm.  A Fashion Show Reception from 4:30-6:30 pm will follow, around the corner at ArtJam.  On Mother’s Day, May 1, a Mother Child painting class will be held from 10am-noon.  Space is limited, so please register at if you would like to participate. The ArtJam closing reception is scheduled for Friday, May 17, from 5:00-8:30 pm.


Ruthann Traylor, Director of ArtSpace, and its sister program SewingSpace, at HomeFront shares that, “ArtJam 2024 brings together so many people who want to support the creativity of our HomeFront families. It is important that our clients have the opportunity to build valuable skills. Prior to the show, our volunteer curators look close to home and beyond to find new and established artists of all genres. This year, HomeFront put out an open invitation for artists wanting to join its efforts.  As a result, several wonderful new artists are participating in the show.”


ArtJam is an amazing experience,” observes Sarah Steward, HomeFront’s Chief Executive Officer.  It serves as an important reminder of the creative spirit of both our client families and the community that comes together to support our work.” She adds that, “The arts can lift spirits; they empower our artists and enhance their self-esteem. We continue to be very grateful for the community support of ArtJam, the many local businesses, community members, our volunteers, and artists who contribute their works, and for all the support we get for Mercer County families in need.”

About HomeFront

HomeFront began over 30 years ago as a group of volunteers dedicated to bringing food to homeless families being housed in grim welfare motels in and around Trenton, NJ. Since then, the organization has grown to a sophisticated social service organization with a comprehensive slate of programs for low-income residents of Mercer County, all of which are designed to alleviate or prevent the pain of homelessness.  HomeFront clients use ArtSpace’s studios both in Lawrence and Ewing and SewingSpace in Lawrence to participate in programs that help them work through trauma, find new entrepreneurial skills, and discover themselves as artists.
