Mountain Jam takes pride in introducing amazingly talented visual artists who exhibit their work through the festival grounds.
Featured Artist: Jack LaRoux
Jack’s statement: My vivid cubist interpretation of a psychedelic world is based upon stained glass and shattered glass imagery that portray the effects of light illuminating and shining through transparent surfaces. It is enhanced by urban, surreal and abstract concepts spawned by life experiences in combination with embellished stories intriguing viewers to continuously explore the enigmatic and layered composition of light – hearted subjects. This animated quality, central to my artwork, keeps art patrons mesmerized and anticipating what they will discover next by exploring my work.
Featured Artist: Michael Hunt
LYRICAL SIGNAGE is a new group of works specifically created for the Ninth Annual Mountain Jam. Rooted in the sign making techniques learned at his family’s sign making company, the posters Michael Hunt has created take pieces of lyrics from this year’s lineup of musical artists and place them over distorted images of Catskill landscapes. The work will attempt to draw the viewer into the lyrics by looking at the actual words in the context of a sign and perhaps create synchronicity when read at the same moment a performer is singing them live.
