Volunteer with us


See our web page "Volunteers at Work & Play" for some familiar faces of folks who volunteer with us

We would like to thank all of our volunteers who give their time and energy to serving the Caldwell Arts Council.  We could never accomplish all that we do, in and for our community, without the help of our wonderful volunteers.


Join the Caldwell Arts Council as a volunteer! Whether your contribution is lending your professional expertise, hanging an exhibit or cleaning the offices, your help will be greatly valued. Whether you are able to give 30 minutes or several hours, your time will make a difference. All ages are welcome!  Click here to see a copy of our current Volunteer Brochure.

Contact Volunteer Coordinator Launi Higgs for details by calling 828-754-2486 or email:  Launi@CaldwellArts.com.

We currently need volunteers to:

  1. Help with mailings - Typically we have at least one mailing each month, and we could use your assistance putting mailing labels on these mailers.
  2. Prepare food for openings - No one to cook for? We are looking for cooks to help provide hors d'oeuvres, finger foods & desserts for our opening receptions on First Fridays.
  3. Clean the offices & gift shop  (Every now & then, a good dusting makes your arts council shine!  Sneezes provided free of charge, along with tissues.)
  4. Maintain garden and grounds - CCC&TI's Horticultural Department and several other volunteers help with maintaining our herb garden, and we want you to feel free to help yourself to the herbs any time you like!  If you could help with a little pruning here & there, or with mowing now and then, we'd be delighted to have your assistance!
  5. Hang art for our monthly exhibits -- Looking for Grown-up social time during the day?  Come hang with us!  We are looking for people to help hang artwork for our monthly exhibits - we'll train you!
  6. Host or hostess for openings (just keeping the hors d'oeuvres trays filled & making sure there's plenty of punch & other drinks on the table - it's not hard!  And we provide cute aprons...)
  7. Help with organization and scheduling of activities (an extra mind and set of eyes is very helpful!)
  8. Event volunteers We have lots of events off-site like April Food & Fools, Granite Falls Concert, Artists-in-Schools theatre shows at the Civic Center, Sculpture Celebration, Hues & Brews, and it's great to have a volunteer or two (or more) to help with the workload.  We'll train you in all you need to know and be there to help too.  During December's holiday sale, we need checkout volunteers all month!
  9. Office Helper - The office has a constant flow of people, phone calls and paperwork. We can always use volunteers to assist our staff with various office tasks. Sometimes it's just helpful to have someone take messages awhile so we can catch up on paperwork.
  10. Satie's Helpers and the Holiday Committee: This committee helps recruit and select artists for the December Holiday Sale. They decorate and set up the gallery, "fluff" through the month, rearrange and maintain the shop throughout the month, handle sales for an hour or two, and then take down the decorations after the event. If you have a passion for local artists, enjoy working with others and have design and display skills you will love this job.
