Public program at c3 summer 2016 during the Portland Biennial exhibition.


Arts non-profit and space c3:initiative is seeking volunteers to assist staff in gallery and event operations.

Gallery attendants greet visitors in the gallery during open hours, Wednesday-Saturday, 12-6pm. During this time, attendants may work on quiet, independent work in the office as long as it does not impede with their ability to engage with visitors and be available for questions. Gallery attendants are often alone in the gallery.

Beyond gallery attending this fall, c3 hopes to build a strong volunteer core for support as we plan for and execute exciting programs beyond exhibition open hours! We'll need help with opening receptions, public programs, and other off site events. An orienation to get familiar with the exhibition and the space is required before starting on as a volunteer.

About this fall's exhibition:

Organic Encounters presents work from the 2016 c3:initiative and Pulp & Deckle Papermaking Residency artists Ellen George, Laura Foster, Tyler Peterson, and Ryan Woodring. Culminating from their experiences in the Pulp & Deckle studio, each artist utilized handmade paper as a medium to create new works that present ideas central to their art practice.

Organic Encounters considers the transformation of material to propel the medium of paper beyond its familiar uses. The exhibition brings together disparate works that are sculptural in form but conceptual in methodology. The results present themselves as commentary on the natural world, the unstable value of objects, the mutability of biological forms, and notions of memory that are dually fluid and tangible.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact c3 Program Coordinator Alexis Roberto at alexis@c3initiative.org with your questions and availibility.
