Jim Naismith

View Jim's Art


Jim Naismith has been volunteering with the WVAC for a year now! Jim said, "WVAC does so much for the community, I am just glad to be a part of the organization. WVAC is a very unselfish organization and it makes it very easy to volunteer."

Jim has been a HUGE help to the WVAC during our exhibit changes. Jim is great with fixing things like drywall and has been extremly helpful when it comes to moving large heavy objects around the gallery. When asked why he volunteers with the WVAC, Jim said, "The people of WVAC are genuine and wonderful to work with." 

Jim is an incredible photographer and woodworker (he makes amazing furniture), his work is currently on-display at the Arts HQ (where he was just awarded 2nd place) and a solo exhibit inside the Avondale library. We love our volunteers and could not accomplish all that we do without your help!
