Cox Volunteer Procedures – Gallery Sitting
When You Arrive
- If the outside door is already unlocked skip to #4.
- Get the door key out of the lock box. The code will have been given to you if you are a volunteer – it will not be published on the web and should not be given out to others.
- Unlock the main outside door, replace key in lock box, and scramble the dial
- Set Gallery sign out on sidewalk. (This is important to establish our presence to the public in Downtown Maysville)
- Turn on lights on 1st floor entry, hallway & stairwell
- Go up to the 2nd floor and turn on hall light and bathroom lights
- Get the keys from the lock box by the window. The code will have been given to you if you are a volunteer – it will not be published on the web and should not be given out to others – it is not the same as for the outside door. Close the lock box and scramble the numbers.
- Unlock both hallway doors and prop them open
- Turn on hall lights (Again, this may all be done by Tourism on weekdays.)
- Unlock doors to Gallery, turn on lights, plug in display cases and photo club’s electronic picture frame.
While You Are There
Sign on the calendar page and make “tick marks” for each person that shows up to visit the gallery.
Greet all visitors with a smile, and offer information about ORVAG. If appropriate, have them sign the visitors book.
Feel free to bring your laptop while you are there.
WiFi connection is available – details are in the book on the Gallery Desk
If anyone buys something or an artist brings in work for sale or for display in the gallery, follow the procedures defined in the “Art Sales” page.
Write everything that happens in the attendance book, including noting if there are interesting visitors.
If you need to wrap anything you sold, there is paper in the storage room on the bottom shelf, including bags for pottery.
If you have any questions use your best judgment and write it down in the daily book.
When you leave
- Unplug the display case and electronic picture frame
- Turn off lights and lock the doors to Gallery
(be sure to push down on the floor lock on the bottom of the gallery door)
