VOLUNTEER ROLES

Here’s a brief list of volunteer roles that we need filled to make the Love show come off real smooth. There is no compensation outside of knowing that you support your community of artists and fans, and that the show literally can’t go on without you. Oh, and all volunteers get a drink ticket, too.

For ALL of these roles, if you can help out for a few hours but not the whole time, please let us know- we can accommodate your schedule and we’d love to have you.

ART INTAKE
January 25 & 26, 2-5 pm, 5-8 pm, 2 Shifts of 2-3 people
January 27, 12-3 pm, 3-6 pm, 2 Shifts of 2-3 people

We are looking for people who can meet, greet and help intake incoming artwork for this show! You will collect fees, record that the work has been dropped off, and call laggers who haven’t dropped off their work yet. It’s a fun way to meet your fellow artists and to get a sneak peak at the work

BUILD, PAINT
We need two-three artists to generally help out during this time, no skill needed, just a willingness to get your hands dirty.

ART PLACEMENT, HANGING
Jan 29th – Feb 2nd, 4-7 pm, 7-10 pm, 2 shifts of 6

We need a solid crew of artists to help move around work and create a good flow for the show, and then to hang it all. Curating the hang of a group show is incredibly fun, and I will teach you how to accurately place and hang work! This is where you get to see the magic happen, really look at the work, and have a say.

OPENING DAY, NIGHT

Saturday, February 3rd
This list will grow, but here are some needs that we have for sure….

Set up crew
Feb 3rd, 3 -6ish pm, 4-5 people

You will help put up labels, adjust lights, build stages, place signage, run errands, sweep, mop, cook and set up food and the bar for the opening. You last-minute set up angels make the show look it’s best! You will be the many hands that make the work light.

Opening Night Jobs
Saturday, Feb 3rd

All opening night shifts run on the same schedule: 6-9 pm, and 9-12 pm.
We need you to show up 20 minutes before your shift to get oriented, so plan ahead!

Sales:
6-9 pm, 9-12pm

two shifts of 4 runners– people who will walk around the space with clipboards and be available to conduct art sales and empower others to buy art, even if they never have before, and 2-3 cashiers, who will do the vital job of handling payment using Square. Runners will basically rove the space and bring buyers to check out.

This is a fun job for someone who like to talk to people about art work and enthused about helping out their fellow artists!

Alcohol monitors:
6-9 pm, 9-12pm
two shifts of 4 alcohol monitors who will pick up any all unattended drinks, keep an eye out for outside alcohol, overly intoxicated people, and that minors aren’t drinking, and periodically check to make sure that no one is drinking outside. If you see a problem, gallery staff will be there to address it.

This is an easy job, and will have you monitoring a dedicated area of the space, but you are important- the vital eyes and ears of the show that help ensure that we can have all-ages events!

Bar Tenders:
6-9 ppm
two shifts of 5 OLCC licensed bartenders broken down into Servers, who will pour beer and wine, Cashiers, who will handle money and credit cards, and an ID checker,  who will help speed things, check ID’s, and stamp hands in the line so folks can get about ordering drinks.
your job is work as a team to vigilantly check every persons state of mind before serving them any alcohol, making sure they AREN’T visibly intoxicated and that they ARE 21.

These are  fast paced roles that needs good money handling skillz and grace under pressure. The line will occasionally be long, but you will keep your cool and sense of humor, and your charm will win much needed funds to support the gallery in the form of donations!

Donations Table
6-9 pm, 9-12 pm
Two shifts of 2 people. You will receive donations for Transition Projects, keep things organized, and generally answer questions, as people will inevitably ask you things.  This job is for people who like talking to people and like helping others; this is also a great job for someone who can’t stand and walk around.

Potluck Table
6-9 pm, 9-12 pm
2 shifts of 2 people. You will help receive food, label it, and keep the table looking pretty by moving stuff around, and picking up empty stuff. You get first pick of the vittles!

Clean up crew
11 pm til it’s done
6 dedicated awesome people. At the end of the night, when the music is over, the clean up crew help put it all back away, breaking down stages, dealing with donations, taking down signs, washing dishes, taking out the trash and recycling and making the floor clean enough to dance on again. The unsung heroes of the Love show… but ask anyone who has helped at the end- that’s when the real party begins and all the deep sighs and stories come out!

Help artists and buyers pick up their work!

PATCH AND PAINT

The right person for this job loves making hole-y things whole again!
