May Volunteer Opportunities!

Volunteers play a vital role in the heart and soul of our programs, and generous individuals in our communities and beyond - like you - who assist in Galería’s ongoing calendar of events, gallery production, and administrative assistance make a world of difference.

By joining us as a volunteer, you get to experience the organization from both a free and exciting behind-the-scenes viewpoint, as well as interact with a community of arts appreciators!

If you are interested in volunteering at Galería, please email with what opportunity interests you, subject line “I want to volunteer at ____________” (name of opportunity). Volunteers receive an orientation and walk-through of all gallery venues on their first day of volunteering.
