Music inspires in many ways, primarily through sound - but also visually through the medium of the visual arts.

In order to honor the fullness of music's impact on our lives, we have added gallery space at our venue to display the artistic creations of those who devote themselves to music through painting and photography.

The exhibits not only extend the palette of the artists, who in most cases are also musicians, but allow our guests at our musical events to experience a fuller sensory impression of the all encompassing beauty inspired by music during our normal hours from Thursdays through Sundays.

The Little Gallery mounts rolling monthly non-exclusive exhibitions of anywhere from 6 to 40 works and hosts an opening night for the artist at the earliest Thursday Jazz At Jamey's night from 6 to 8pm, featuring live jazz by the Dave Reiter Trio and guest musicians from 8 to 10pm. There is no charge for admission. Our kitchen is open with a full dinner menu selection, and our Conshohocken Brewing Co bar is open as well, with happy hour food and drink discounts from 6 to 7pm. Artists are encouraged to put out press releases, advertise on social media and send invitations to patrons, art writers, bloggers and critics, and the mainstream press as well as the general public. JHOM will feature selections from each show during the month on our website at no charge.

Potential exbibiting artists are pleased to note that the Little Gallery at JHOM only takes a 30% commission on sales. Submissions may be made by email to jamey@jameyshouseofmusic and include the number of pieces and sizes, exhibition title, type of media included, sample images, and artist bio including past shows. Submitted pieces must be no more than 60 lbs for large examples, framed, and have picture wire mounting, attribution wall cards which we affix with removable foam tape, and an artist bio with headshot and description of the exhbit dry mounted on foamcore and a full manifest with pricing. Artists are invited to assist during hanging. JHOM will settle all sales at the conclusion of the exhibit.

Our first exhibitor will be our good friend, David Reiter, whose photography show entitled 'Close Up - A Musician's Perspective', will run for the month of December, with an opening soiree on Thursday, November 30 at the Thursday night Jazz At Jamey's.

For over 50 years, David has been capturing the spirit of life in images taken around the world. He’s been a street photographer since his high school years, making artful and often ironic images that tell stories about his subjects. He also makes the occasional image that’s totally devoid of meaning but is just plain fun to view. If his ideas are too simple for your taste, don’t worry - just read in your own.

Over many years of processing film and printing his work in various darkened rooms, he progressed through better equipment and facilities until digital imaging became good enough to adopt. He’s been exclusively digital since 2003, an easy adoption once he accepted that there’s as much work in digital imaging as there is in emulsion based photography.

He’s a past winner of Philly Photo Night (a juried competition run by the Photographic Society of Philadelphia in years past) and has exhibited at shops and galleries around the Delaware Valley for many years.

He’s never without a camera and captures what he sees from some unusual perspectives. As a working musician, he’s generated a large library of images shot from bandstands around the world as well as the streets. We hope you enjoy viewing his work.
