There are so many exciting ways to be involved with Gilmer Arts—as an artist, performer, writer, office worker, usher, host or hostess, ticket seller, setup person, advertising solicitor, computer guru, handyman or woman, instructor, or camp assistant. The list goes on!  And whatever your interest—art, theatre, music, literature—there is something for everyone at Gilmer Arts!
