The Stutz Artists Association is looking for volunteers for the 19th annual Raymond James Stutz Artists Open House on April 27-28, 2012, at the historic Stutz Business Center.

Volunteers who work at least one three-hour shift will receive a free event T-shirt and admission to the two-day event.  In addition to enjoying the art and atmosphere of one of the city’s premier cultural events, volunteers may give directions, assist artists in their studios or help entertainers move equipment.  Volunteers must be at least 18 years old and will be asked to attend a one-hour training session.

At the event, more than 70 artists will be in their studios showing work that ranges from paintings, drawings and photography, to sculpture, jewelry and furniture.  Hours are from 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. on Friday, April 27 and from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 28, at the Stutz Business Center at 10th Street and Capitol Avenue downtown.

Admission is $12 at the gate.  Ticket proceeds support the Stutz Residency Program, a scholarship that provides free studio space and utilities for emerging local artists.

For more information or to complete a volunteer application, visit  Applications are due by April 1.
