Welcome to the Online Resource Center for Harford Artists’ Members!

Announcements

As we do move through these unusual times, we are looking forward to scheduling workshops, presentations, and other events, such as opening receptions for each exhibit. Some we will be able to schedule for later in 2021, others we feel would be safer to schedule in the spring of 2022. 

Call for Volunteers!

With the restart of events, we are looking for volunteers to head up committees as well as to be a part in helping out. The following is a list of positions we are looking to fill. Please remember that other than the Gallery Manager, the entire organization is volunteer run! Even if all you can do is help out for an hour or two at one event, please consider volunteering. 
 
Needed positions:
  • Satellite Director: Would oversee the current and potential satellites and make sure everything is running smoothly. Act as back up satellite coordinator when necessary.
  • Satellite Coordinators: Manage all aspects of satellite, including change-outs and sale replacements. Must maintain inventory log and reconciliation.
  • Event Director: Oversee and schedule events including major fundraisers for the organization. Appoint event coordinators to head each individual event and help find event committee members as well as work with event committee 
  • Event volunteers: Help event director with details of events throughout the year. May include setting up for event and clean up after. 
  • Gallery Cleaning: Need to vacuum, dust and mop Gallery bi-weekly. This is a paid position at $35.00 per each time cleaning. Must be able to work around workshop schedules and come in when Gallery is closed.

Set up workshops on HAA Facebook page as an event and liaise with webmaster to have workshops posted to website. Must be present at all workshops as Association rep to open/close Gallery and make sure rules are followed. This does not have to be just one person!
 
If you cannot commit to handling the position “full time”, maybe you’d like to volunteer to be the back up?  A second person who could work on the website or someone to help handle the accounts payable and receivable is always welcome!
