Yorktown Arts foundation and “On the Hill Gallery” operates on a strictly volunteer basis. This means that all the workers at the desk, decorating, on the phone, at the computer, taking photos, writing letters, handling finances, sending newsletters, developing, designing and running website, setting up exhibits, running the Stroll, cleaning, marketing and designing posters, cards or invitations, and all the other jobs that go with running a business and a foundation are ALL volunteers. Each person is essential in the experience of opening and making sure that each visitor is greeted and treated like a guest of honor and that their encounter with us is pleasant and memorable.
Here is our current volunteer staff: (and if you think we have enough…we don’t! Please join us and help us spread the enjoyment of art, meet new friends and be a part of a growing organization that helps support art in our community…don’t worry if you don’t think you can…we will train you to be the best!)
Along with our Board we would like to personally thank each person whose name is on this list and helps in any way they can in supporting us… we truly appreciate each and every one of you!
On the Hill Gallery will be staffed by the artists whose work is exhibited and sold in the gallery. This direct artist contact with customers makes for a unique experience within the Yorktown art community for both the artist and the art patron. Everyone working in the gallery will be oriented and trained in all procedures so that you feel comfortable with your role. We will schedule two people for each shift so you will not work alone and have a chance to get to know your fellow artists. Patron volunteer members are also very welcome to work in the gallery on an ongoing basis.
At this time the gallery sales commission is 65% to the artist and 35% to the gallery. if you do not volunteer. If you work one day a month it is 70/30, two days a month 75/25,three days a month 80/20 and four days a month 90/10 (the 90/10 is limited to six volunteers a month). We hope that you will consider working in the gallery.
