YOU can help us fuel the power of art!
Our volunteers are the backbone of Waterfall Arts’ programming. Perks of getting involved include rubbing elbows with an incredible creative community, regularly surrounding yourself with art and art making, Waterfall Arts swag, complimentary membership, discounts on classes and workshops, studio rentals, and more.
Ongoing Opportunities include:
Event Support: As available, eg. Exhibition Openings, Concerts, Lectures, etc.
The Event Support crew is vital to helping Waterfall Arts pull off our great events. These volunteers lighten the load for staff members, make sure all of our guests are attended to, and infuse the place with good energy. Duties include: postering prior to events, set-up and breakdown, serving food and drinks, manning the door, and more.
Gallery Greeter: Tuesday – Saturday, shifts 10am–1:30pm & 1:30pm–5pm.
The Gallery Greeter is one of our main liaisons to the public. They are educated about current exhibitions and our on-going programs so that they can effectively answer questions and provide general information to our visitors. Duties include: directing visitors to the office or to tenants’ studios; answering the phone and recording messages for staff; providing information about rentals and classes; assisting with mailings, filing, or light office tasks.
Studio Monitor: Tuesday – Saturday, 3 hour minimum shift between 10am-8pm, consistent every week (minimum 2 month commitment).
Individuals with sufficient experience in printmaking, ceramics, or darkroom photography can qualify to be a studio monitor. Waterfall Arts strives to offer reliable open studio hours that the public can count on to create work in our spaces, so we’re looking for volunteers that can make a consistent weekly commitment. Duties include opening the space and overseeing renters, providing help when needed, maintaining the studio space, and offering basic orientation (rules, supply location, and equipment processes) to new users.
Facilities Support: As available, to be scheduled with Facilities Manager.
Keeping this building in good condition so that all may enjoy it takes a village. Volunteers can help with a wide range of projects, depending on their skills and availability. We regularly need help with: gallery wall prep and painting, cleaning and organizing, maintaining the grounds and garden beds, sign painting, light construction/carpentry, and more.
Other: Have a special skill set or want to help with something specific? Have limited availability? There are many other ways to get involved, just drop us a line with your suggestion!
