Volunteer Opportunities at Beckley Art Center (BAC)
There is always something to do at BAC and always a special place for YOU!
Variety of Opportunity
Call 304-253-9226 and tell us where you want to fit in: Art exhibitions, docent in gallery, assistants with children’s art classes, receptions, organizing art supplies, crocheting, painting, assisting with educational programs, hostess for special events, promoting the arts and advertising, mailings, gardening, answering the phone, dusting and sweeping, reception desk and lots more.
A good place to start is being a docent in the gallery. The desk is all set up with all you need to greet visitors and explain about the exhibition on display. While volunteering you will learn all about other opportunities within the gallery and will be able to help promote the arts. A trained docent is the first person a visitor will meet as they enter so this is another great way for you to promote the arts. The shifts during the week are: Wednesday-Saturday 11:00 am – 2:00 pm and 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm.
Greeting visitors may not be your choice. If behind the scene is better for you there are opportunities which may suit better. Planning committees work on events, receptions, fashion shows, fundraisers, music functions, painting parties plus unlimited activities.
