Volunteering at The Guild

RGA is mostly a volunteer-run organization, and we depend on our members for everything from painting walls in preparation for the incoming exhibition, serving drinks during openings, unpacking and tagging merchandise for Festive Home, and the list goes on. We always need people to help, so please step up. If you would like to join our fun group of volunteers, please contact the office at 203.438.8863 or send an email to rgoa@sbcglobal.net.

 

Participating in Member Shows

The best way to show your work is in one of the Guild’s exhibitions. Each year, RGA produces a members-only themed show, which is not juried; a juried member show; an open juried show and “Bedlam,” which is a hang-your-own show. In addition to these member-oriented shows, we regularly have open juried shows; curated, invitational shows, and CameraWorks (every other year).

If you would like to present a proposal for a curated show of your own making, please contact the Guild with a written prospectus about 18 months in advance.
