Vibrant, multi-arts festival, JAM on the Marsh, has opened its free Call for Visual Artists. New or existing works are welcome – so is a great idea. Launched for artists in any medium, we are looking for exhibitions and installations to be displayed in venues across Kent’s Romney Marsh (8 -18 July 2021) and via our virtual gallery at jamconcert.org from July to December.
JAM on the Marsh features world-class music, art, theatre, photography, poetry and workshops. Now in its 8th season, JAM on the Marsh draws a festival audience of 17,000 through outstanding live and virtual events, reaching local audience, nationally and across the globe.
Both fine arts and applied arts are an integral part to the innovation of JAM on the Marsh. Previous exhibitors have included a wide array of talent, creativity and diversity, thus bringing their unique voice and perspective into this arts festival.
The beach art by land artist Jon Foreman on Dymchurch beach was a highlight of JAM on the Marsh 2019, featuring on BBC Inside Out South East.
Jillian Bain Christie, a talented mixed media artist from Aberdeen, Scotland, shared her experience of exhibiting at JAM on the Marsh:
As a part of his two-year residency with JAM on the Marsh, Tristan Fewings, an editorial photographer shooting with Getty Images, journeyed along the unique coastline of Kent’s Romney Marsh capturing striking images in his exhibition, Between the Sea and the Sky.
Possibly the most dramatic exhibition to have been presented at JAM on the Marsh has come from Romney Marsh based photography, Susan Pilcher. Her experimental photography, with long exposure shots taken at night, has produced vivid, unmissable images.
Artists will be able to sell your work via jamconcert.org with no commission fee
