About

Join our Gallery Manager and fellow volunteers to participate in the installation of our monthly exhibitions. To get a sense of our shows, visit http://www.pacificartleague.org/current-exhibit/.

This monthly volunteering day offers the gallery’s best opportunity to get behind the scenes and learn about how an art exhibition comes together. We start the morning with a close look at the newly delivered artworks. Learn from the Gallery Manager about initial steps to lay out and exhibition, and share your observations and ideas to create walls with strong visual communication to draw visitors through. We collaboratively lay out the show, discovering compelling associations between pieces in a variety of media by regional artists.

As the layout emerges, volunteers apply their installation skills to hang two-dimensional works. Training is provided, and basic math skills are all you need to learn to hang artwork with proper height and spacing. We spackle and paint the walls, then get to work on installation. Volunteers are encouraged to ask questions, freely take coffee and lunch breaks, and become a part of the exhibition that will be unveiled at our First Friday reception.
