Now is the time to start thinking about playing your part in Gallery at First UU, the annual fine arts and crafts show held at church every fall. We have a wide variety of volunteer opportunities, so there is something for everyone to do! This year, the show will run from September 21 to September 25. However some jobs begin on September 15 and some end on September 27. Your choices include:
Public Relations (starting in the summer)
Use your talents to help get the word out on radio, TV newspapers, magazines, and “the grapevine.”
Prepare the church for its amazing transformation. We need your strong arms, legs and backs to move furniture and displays before and after the show.
Artist Check In/Check Out
Keep track of an amazing array of arts and crafts while getting your own private preview of the show. And, you get to meet the artists!
Your computer input skills are needed for Gallery record keeping. This is an ongoing effort – before, during, and after Gallery.
Setup & Design
Your arms and your sense of style will be put to good use to create a fabulous art space! This happens during the three days before Gallery opens. Let your creative juices flow, but leave your egos at the door!
Your smile will welcome the visitors to Gallery. Pick a two hour shift from opening night until closing.
The art truly sells itself, but we need you to write up the transactions. Help folks purchase sculptures, paintings, weaving, jewelry, pottery and more throughout the show. Choose your shift. Chose two; choose three!
You get to sit down on this job. Any day or evening during Gallery you can tally up the sales and collect the money.
Most of these jobs are done in 2 or 3-hour shifts. Sign up at the Gallery table on Sunday beginning in August for one or more shifts or sign up online here.
Try several different jobs. Make new friends (over 200 people help out with the show each year)! Spend a few hours in the midst of this artistic wonderland. Help the church with its most important fund- raising event.
