Sketch Club Member Volunteer Exhibition and Reception

Member volunteers play an important role in the day-to-day operations of the PSC. Volunteers help manage work submitted for exhibitions, help hang exhibitions and help keep the gallery staffed during gallery hours.  They also help with many back-office operations performed by paid staff in larger organizations.

On Sunday Dec 7th the PSC held a 2015 KickOff Party for Volunteers and the Reception for the Volunteer Exhibition.

A number of PSC volunteers who work on the Club’s Exhibitions were there, as well as some members who have “signed up” to volunteer for 2015 already.  In addition to a great social afternoon, Bill Patterson gave a walking tour of the club and several works of art were sold to visitors.

The next Volunteer party will be Sunday March 15th from 1-4pm and it is open to all members.  Please join us.

If you would like to volunteer to help with Exhibits or other club activities please contact us at: Volunteer for PSC

Gallery Hours: Wed, Fri, Sat, Sunday: 1:00 to 5:00 PM

Here are some photos of attendees at the December 7th Opening Reception and a sneak preview of the works on view.  Volunteers are listed at the bottom of the post.
