I have been a volunteer for our library for 20 years. I work at the school so I can ask for art or teach some classes on my own time, (since art no longer exists in our school thanks to No Child Left Behind!). Since I know the artists, I can ask them to display their art and since I helped write the grant for the hanging system, I am now the art liasian between the library, the school and the local artists' group. Now mind you, I never volunteered for the job, the job was just given to me so it is now mine.
Saturday, I met two artists early and helped them remove their paintings and carry them to their cars in the rain. Then I met two more artists and helped them carry their art inside, (still raining), and hang their work.
Finally, I got to remove all of the student artwork that had been on display. I loved looking at their simple fish once again. Now I get to try and locate the kids and return their paintings.
... and try and come up with a way to get more children's artwork to display in in these lovely frames. Hmmmmmm...
