VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED - Adopt an Artist
We are seeking 20 volunteers from the community that can help house artists arriving from out of town. You can "Adopt an Artist" for a few nights so the have a bed to sleep in after a hard day of painting. MEALS ARE NOT REQUIRED.
Additional volunteers will be needed to assist with staffing information booths, selling tickets to events, social networking, press releases, setting up events, refreshments, hanging art for the receptions, and sales of artwork at the gallery and at the artists easel.
