Volunteer with Access Gallery
You don't need to be an artist to volunteer at Access Gallery.
Due to COVID-19, all current volunteer opportunities are virtual for the time being. While we encourage your interest to volunteer, we want you to know that it may be a while before we have the ability to do deep volunteer work. We are operating in limited capacity at the moment and mostly virtually.
All volunteers receive information and training about the gallery, our programs and working with the artists. Volunteer training is provided through formal and informal formats. Access Gallery has a culture that requires flexibility and the ability to adapt to situations as they arise. While we aim to provide volunteer job descriptions, our specific needs and the amount of work to be done can vary from week to week. Please know that it may take a few volunteer sessions before we know the best way to use your skills and talents. If at any time your volunteer role is unclear, please ask. We value your time and expertise and want to help find the best use of your talents at Access Gallery.

Teaching Artist: Volunteers share their art skills and talent with our artists and students within a wide range of teaching areas including: photography, printmaking, painting, personal development, etc.
