All applicants must participate in an initial screening interview to determine if they will be invited to become a docent.

We are always looking for great volunteers to help in the following areas:


Gallery Hosts

These friendly volunteers are the first “face” of the Wheelwright to our visitors. Welcoming visitors, providing a brief overview of the current exhibits, and answering questions are all a part of the Gallery Host job. Additional training provided.

Case Trading Post Sales

Volunteers have the opportunity to learn about the artists and art forms they create. Your knowledge lets you inform and educate customers as they look for that special piece to add to their collection, or to buy a memento of their visit. Additional training provided.
