Volunteering at Gallery Events

The gallery hosts various educational and fundraising events throughout the year such as opening previews of exhibits, lectures, dinners and receptions. Willing hands are needed to help out as greeters, servers, and setup and cleanup crews. But most importantly, the CAA Associates, through their volunteer involvement, show their appreciation and support of the Carmel Art Association.
