Our volunteers continue to contribute their time and talents
to support the many activities of the museum. They share their
knowledge and enthusiasm with museum visitors and provide an
invaluable service to our community.
New volunteers begin with an orientation session which
provides them with the opportunity to learn about the history of
the museum, events and exhibits. Openings for volunteers exist
in several different areas including: tending the front desk, working
with school groups or respite guests, assisting the staff at
special events, concerts and tea ceremonies, helping to keep the
museum’s scrap books up to date, assisting with public relation
projects and working with the staff during opening receptions.
Volunteers glean important information from our exhibiting
artist(s) when they attend one of the museum’s gallery talks/
coffee socials. These informal gatherings are open to the public
and are usually held soon after an exhibit opens.
Volunteers and staff are invited to go on field trips to other
museums and galleries in New England, where docents share
their knowledge and hospitality. A highlight of the volunteer
year is the annual holiday luncheon where we all celebrate the
accomplishments of the past year and congratulate each other
for a “job well done.”
Volunteering is an exciting way to spend your free time. You
are never too young or too old to learn something new. We
welcome adults, high school and college students to join our
