Related  Experience:
I am an active member of the Vallejo Artists' Guild.  The Guild is a 15 year old, 501c3, non-profit, community art organization that relies on volunteers to host 5 group exhibitions, 7 individual shows and events such as Vallejo Open Studios each year.  In my time with the Guild, I have served as Public Relations Director as a member of the Board of Directors and am currently President.  I have coordinated two VAG group exhibitions,  Vallejo Open Studios 2003 and 2004 and I have served on or chaired numerous committees including group exhibition, fundraising, budget, calendar, and operational restructuring committees. In doing so, I have gained necessary experience for organizing, hanging, promoting, fundraising and coordinating other volunteers for art exhibitions and events.
