The Palmer Museum of History and Art is looking for artists/writers/ performers/educators for numerous events and activities throughout the 2018 summer season. If you are interested in the opportunity of presenting a fun, cultural, entertaining activity this year feel free to contact us; the possibilities are endless!

During the months of February through November we are looking for artists to participate in the Palmer Art Walk,  which is a part of the valley-wide event, Second Saturdays (  Throughout the year, the Museum also hosts an eclectic Temporary Exhibit program that encompasses a variety of media. The Museum is constantly searching for artists to be a part of these exhibits.

If you love teaching, we are looking for exciting new classes to get the community involved and create a fantastic lineup of workshops for 2018. Previous workshops include: making a bent willow trellis, basket weaving, and digital photography to name a few.  It is a great way for artists to get involved with the community while earning a little extra income!  

And for those of you who are skilled artisans or tradesmen and women, we are looking for people to offer hands-on educational demonstrations of the types of activities one might find during the colony era.  Do you know how to make cheese, spin wool or needlepoint?  Or perhaps you are a horse farrier, ironworker, or show cobbler?  If so, we want to know!
