We’re looking for a few folks who love art and are willing to share their enthusiasm to be docents at the Green Mountain Watercolor Exhibition (GMWE) and future art shows. No experience necessary. Docents provide general information about the show and the Mad River Valley, handle sales, count attendees, and give away our summer arts program. For the GMWE, three-hour shifts are in the barn at Lareau Farm in Waitsfield. The GMWE opens on July 1 and runs through July 23. Hours: Noon-9 pm, Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday. GMWE docents who sign up and work 5 or more shifts will receive a free Taste the Valley Experience ticket. If you are interested in being a docent, please call 802-496-6682. Thank you!
