CPS offers many opportunities to get involved with the Society and is always looking for voluntees to serve in a variety of areas. Possibilities for involvement include helping to organize exhibitions, assistance with the receiving and pick-up of artwork for exhibitions, membership administration, and fund-raising. Serving as a volunteer is a good way to meet fellow artists, share information, and become acquainted with the functioning of a fine-arts organization. We welcome your interest and participation.

Become part of the CPS committee. Members meet at Gallery 53, 2nd floor, Colony Street, Meriden, CT every six weeks on the second Saturday of every odd month to discus the direction and agenda of the society. If you would like to participate or simply attend, please contact our president Dick McEvoy at for the next meeting date. Thank you. All members are welcome!
