Join Gregory Sipp at the Mid – Atlantic Jazz Festival in Rockville, Maryland February 16-18 2018 for the release of his Thelonious Monk Mosaic along with his other mosaics.
The Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival (MAFJ) is presented in the true spirit and intent of the former East Coast Jazz Festival (ECJF). Founded in 1992 by vocalist/vocal educator Ronnie Wells, for the next 15 years the ECJF was produced by and benefited The Fish Middleton Jazz Scholarship Fund, Inc.
(FMJS). ECJF was originally created in honor of Elmore “Fish” Middleton, a Washington, DC jazz radio programmer, whose commitment to promoting jazz music and supporting emerging jazz artists became the guiding principle behind the festival.
Produced by the Jazz Academy of Music, which hosts a burgeoning annual jazz camp for aspiring high school jazz musicians, the MAJF makes an indelible commitment to jazz education.
The Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival will build upon the legacy of ECJF in presenting the region’s finest talents and visiting masters in unique “festival” programs and configurations, Next Generation jazz artists, and student ensembles.

I have been a jazz guy most of my life. I started listening to jazz when I was in the eighth grade. I have wanted to go the Newport Jazz Festival for many years. I know it is the oldest and most respected Jazz Festival in America.
To be in this environment and to be selling my work is truly an honor. My booth will be in the Main Stage area. The name of my business is Gregory Sipp Mosaic Artistry. I make glass mosaic portraits of Jazz artists. I also sell prints of my mosaics. My work was featured on the poster of last year’s Chicago Jazz Festival.
I hope you can come to the festival and please stop by my booth at the 2017 Newport Jazz Festival.
This year 2017, I will be a vendor at the Washington DC Jazz Festival in June, the Newport Jazz Festival in Newport Rhode Island in August, and the Chicago Jazz Festival in September.

The Harlem Fine Arts Show was a great experience. There were some internationally known artists there. There were also some celebrities there. S Epatha Merkerson came by my booth and spoke to us about her Chicago show, Chicago Med. She was very down to earth and friendly. In the booth right next to mine was Antonio L. Davis. He paints with his mouth and did excellent work. He is wheel bound and has limited use of his arms.I met a lot of artists and I enjoyed the camaraderie and the sharing that most artists there freely expressed. Overall, the show was a big success and I will be going to the Fine Art shows in the future.
