The Arts Warehouse welcomes a committed group of dedicated volunteers to fill a variety of positions as needed and to participate in a wide range of activities and events vital to the successful operation of the Arts Warehouse. Training is made available when needed. To get involved, review the many volunteer opportunities. All volunteers must be a minimum 18 years of age or older. The CRA may recruit supervised groups with members that are not 18 years of age for special events. We will post CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS on our website and social media pages. We will look for both as needed/on call and regularly scheduled volunteers. To be added to our list or more information please email Grace Gdaniec at
Volunteers help staff the information/registration desk at the facility. These volunteers are the front line of service at the Center. Volunteers greet guests and provide information about the facility as well as about exhibitions, programs, and events. They also give tours of the facility. The Center depends upon the guest service volunteers to facilitate a positive visitor experience. Guest Service volunteers commit to a minimum one-year assignment with weekly participation and are a minimum age of 18 years old. Volunteers are available during day/evening hours weekdays and weekends.
PROGRAMS AND EVENTS
Volunteers assist with programs and events ranging from set up/break down to greeting and more. Volunteering for programs and events is an excellent opportunity for those who want to volunteer but cannot commit to a regular shift. Participation is on an as-needed basis. Please check with Arts Warehouse staff or the website for upcoming programs, events, and staffing needs. Times vary.
ARTS WAREHOUSE GALLERY PROGRAM
Volunteers will work with the Arts Warehouse staff to plan and execute a gallery program throughout the year. Volunteer opportunities may include – but are not limited to – show installation and break down, advertising/marketing/promotion, reception set up, clean up, break down, artwork tags, information station and much more. Times vary.

Arts Warehouse volunteers will be required to present a professional demeanor, welcome visitors warmly, and be comfortable answering basic questions about The Arts Warehouse’s Events, Programs, Exhibitions, and Artist. Volunteers will be expected to get to know the staff members’ responsibilities, so that more in-depth visitor questions can be referred correctly.
Additionally, Front Desk volunteers will be expected to perform receptionist and cashier duties such as answering and routing phone calls, completing class registration transactions, and processing gallery sales inquiries with staff. Office work such as gallery labels on, setting up/cleaning up for programs/events, and other similar tasks are part of the job description.
Traffic through The Arts Warehouse can vary wildly — some days are extremely busy, other days are very quiet. During slow days, volunteers must keep themselves entertained in ways that do not disrupt the ongoing duties of the staff. For example: reviewing our website, reading about our programs and artists or even working on their own small projects as assigned by staff.
