The Chiricahua Gallery Needs Your Help!

We couldn’t do it without you! The Chiricahua Gallery is now open on Saturdays and Sundays. We are in need of volunteer Hosts. With additional Hosts, we could be open on Fridays as well.

The Chiricahua Gallery is staffed by volunteers who are instrumental in keeping our doors open. Hosts have great fun meeting and greeting visitors, helping with purchases, and answering visitors’ questions. Hosts volunteer one day per month, from 10:00 – 4:00 and are responsible for opening and closing the Gallery, balancing the cash drawer, and completing the day’s paper work. If you live here part-time, that’s okay; we could use your help when you’re here. The Gallery is following Covid-safe practices so please be assured we intend to provide a safe hosting environment.

There are many benefits of being a volunteer host such as receiving a complimentary Associate Membership ($25 value). But most importantly, you are supporting a local gallery that provides scholarships for local students, is designated a New Mexico Historical and Cultural Site, and supports local and regional artists.

For more information about this volunteer opportunity please go to:https://www.chiricahuagallery.net/2020/10/24/the-chiricahua-gallery-needs-your-help/

The Chiricahua Gallery is a non-profit, cooperative art gallery. Its mission includes enriching the cultural and educational opportunities for the residents of Rodeo, New Mexico; Portal, Arizona; and surrounding areas through concerts and cultural programs, scholarships for local high school seniors, and art workshops.

The Gallery, managed and operated by an all-volunteer staff, has strong community support with over 40 associate members and draws returning visitors from across the country and around the world.





The Gallery’s adobe building was built in 1910 and served as a saloon and brothel for many years and then as a general store. A church took over the building in the 1930s, and it served the religious needs of the community for over 40 years before declining attendance and much needed maintenance resulted in the church being taken over by the local historical society, which arranged for the transfer of ownership to the Chiricahua Gallery. The Gallery is now a designated New Mexico Historic and Cultural Site that celebrated its 30th Anniversary in 2016.
