Opportunities

There are often opportunities to volunteer in the Museum. Projects might include helping to prepare the gallery in between exhibitions, preparing Museum mailings, lending a hand at an opening reception, or other miscellaneous jobs. Volunteers gain behind-the-scenes experience in museum work, a chance to network with other art lovers and professionals, and the benefit of time spent in this beautiful environment.

If you're interested in volunteering at the Museum, please contact us.

For information on employment opportunities please see the Human Resources page.

One of the best ways to introduce your artwork to the Museum director and to be exhibited in the Westmont Museum of Art is to enter our annual juried exhibition. Each year the artists that are juried into the exhibition range from seasoned professionals whose work commands multiple thousands of dollars, to emerging young artists who are just beginning their careers.

Submissions to the juried exhibitions are accepted digitally in mid-spring. For guidelines and more information, please refer to the season calendar.
