We believe it is essential to actively support and participate in our community. This allows us to give back to the local community, maintain knowledge of current trends in the market, and build relationships that are essential for our projects. When she is not appraising, Pamela also works as a Specialist for the SAM Gallery at the Seattle Art Museum and reviews cultural events for 4Culture.

Active community participation
We frequently attend gallery openings, auctions, lectures, seminars, tours, and other arts events throughout the Pacific Northwest. This allows us to build professional relationships, continue our education, and support the local arts community.

Supporting the next generation of artists
We believe all artists need support. We have volunteered as art docents and support for art teachers in the Seattle Public Schools. We have also managed the submissions and jury process for the Reflections Art Program in schools and Pamela served as the 2022 - 2023 Co-Chair for the Reflections Art Program in Seattle.
Preparations for 2019 Pilchuck Glass School auction
We frequently volunteer at community auctions, galas, and fundraisers. Organizations we support at these events include: Pilchuck Glass School, Artist Trust, CoCA, Gage Art Academy, and Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington. Pamela Jaynes also served on the Artist Trust auction committee for three years.

Contributions to causes we support
Each year, we contribute a percentage of our profits to causes we believe in. In 2022, we donated funds to Give Kids the World Village, an organization that allows families with critically ill children to visit Central Florida for free wish vacations. We also contributed volunteer hours while staying in Central Florida.

This program promotes and supports local, emerging artists and introduces their work to the community. She was also a member of the Phinneywood Arts Council for four and half years.
