Thanks to COVID, it has been over 2 years since we have had volunteers in the Art Center, and we are happy to say that time has come to an end!  With things picking up and a lot happening at the Art Center, we are in desperate need of volunteers to help with everything from the front desk, exhibit receptions, gallery intakes and change-outs, Farmers' Market greeters and more. Art Center volunteers work side by side with staff and are a key component in running a fun, friendly Art Center. Without our dedicated volunteers the day to day operations of the Art Center would not be possible.

how to volunteer-coming soon

STEP 1 – Sign up for our mailing list ONLINE HERE.  This allows us to capture your contact information in our database for communications.  (If you are already a member or on our mailing list, please disregard and move to step 2).

STEP 2 – Register as a volunteer ONLINE HERE.  You will be asked to sign a release of liability and also read the Art Center Code of Conduct.  (Soon, our database will improve and step 1 and 2 will combine!)

STEP 3 – Attend a volunteer orientation.  ALL volunteers, returning and new, will need to attend an orientation prior to first volunteer shift.  Orientations are held every 1st and 3rd Wednesday evening of the month at 6:00pm.  It will last roughly 20 minutes, and will cover the basics of the Art Center, what we do, and where everything is.  Front desk volunteers will need an additional 10 minutes of training to go over the phone system, computer and more.


STEP 4 - Sign up for volunteer shifts ONLINE HERE.  Click the link to find a complete current list of volunteers shifts needed and sign up!  Sign up for as few or as many as you like, we just ask that you are committed to attending the shifts you sign up for, as we rely heavily on the spaces getting filled and we miss out if someone ends up not making it.
