Review for Friends of the Visual Arts, Salem, OR, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Many of the reviews that are posted here are from people who get free studio time in exchange for a minimal amount of "work". While there is good instruction and the facilities are good, the organization is cliquey and people who aren't accepted by the clique are treated badly. The board members are also people who founded the organization and they implement many self-serving policies, put their work before the work of others, etc.

In reading the reviews it might be helpful to look at the profile of the person and the "What did you do" to determine the person's affiliation with the Willamette Art Center. Most people who "volunteer" actually exchange work or chores for free studio time (which is not volunteering).

Role:  General Member of the Public & I am a patron of the organization.
