Without volunteers there would not be a Gualala Arts Center!

Community volunteers conceived the idea of an arts center many years ago. Volunteer efforts have brought that dream to fruition and continue to be the lifeblood of the facility today. Literally, hundreds of individuals share their time, talent and financial resources to maintain Gualala Arts.

The Tuesday Work Group keeps up the building, makes improvements such as landscaping, the Karel Metcalf Garden Terrace, the outdoor theater, the river trail, the Redwood Grove, DePrima Terrace and countless other projects.

A dedicated group handles the monthly mailing of Sketches. Volunteers serve on Gualala Arts’ board and committees.

Volunteers prepare receptions and serve their culinary offerings at them. Volunteers run the many performance art series – Chamber Music, LocalEyes, Global Harmony and Theater. Volunteers maintain the library and staff the Dolphin Gallery every day.

Carpenter or cook, gardener or organizer, artist or patron – whatever your talent, it will be put to good use at Gualala Arts. Not only will you be donating your time to a worthwhile cause, but also you will develop new friendships and become more intimately involved in our Redwood Coast Community. All are welcome.
