Show Staffing:  Members entering the show will be asked to sign up for a three-hour slot to sit the show. This type of involvement is necessary to keep our shows running successfully. Member shows require a great deal of work and we need your support, so please bring your calendars with you to intake and be prepared to choose a slot. If you are bringing someone else’s artwork, bring that person’s scheduling information as well.


Sign Out:  You must sign out your art work. You may sign it out before the reception starting at 3:30pm,
but not remove it until after 4:30. Many people wish to view the show until it closes after the reception.
Please pick up your art following the reception between 4:30pm and 4:45pm.


If you cannot pick up your artwork at this time, specify an alternate person to pick up your artwork
when you sign in on Monday, or call Julia (530) 295-1220, to make other arrangements.
Artwork cannot be left at the center.
