Becoming a volunteer at HCCC arose from a very personal endeavor. As a result, my exposure to the artwork at HCCC completely changed my perception of craft. Directly discussing artwork with some of the artists-in-residence gave me an even greater insight into the complexity of effort that goes into much of the art they produce and the high quality of work HCCC demands.
Volunteering at HCCC has been a two-fold experience for me. I have the opportunity to view amazing new and upcoming works of art, which I may not have known about. Additionally, volunteering as a gallery attendant or at one the various programs such as Hands-On Houston, exhibition openings or external arts functions, such as Bayou City Arts Festival, MFAH, and other venues, gives me the opportunity to be a part of the Houston arts community and share the art of craft.
