University credit alignment preferred, but not required. “A” students preferred. Our goal is to teach you in exchange for work. And connect you to artists, dealers and curators in the Art World. Previous gallery work is preferred but not necessary.
The gallery’s works are high value. Their clients are astute and elegant. Candidates must be as sharp as a tack and art world fluent. Only the most polished candidates with a passion for the art gallery profession need apply.
The ability to remain calm and not become “star struck” in the presence of well known guests is an imperative. Understanding each item for sale requires acute memory skills. A series of three interviews (via phone, skype or in person) will determine the two 2016 candidates.
Duties include light customer service, relaying VIP messages, gallery management and appearance, offsite appointments and errands, and some evening event tasks (wine + cheese socials, etc.). Marketing, social media content and other PR tasks will be shared, pending experience. Inventory management and database updates are a key part of the interns’ daily tasks.
HOURS / SCHEDULE:
Gallery hours are 10 AM to 7 PM, six and sometimes seven days a week (prime holidays). However, internship hours may be different than gallery hours, pending tasks and events designed per diem. Ideal that intern could spend 15-20 hours in the gallery per week.
Considerable perks. Amazing location. Exceptional learning experience. Optional end-of-summer bonus (based on can-do attitude and overall performance). There is no housing or relocation assistance. No designated parking.
Your resume should include all academic and work experience relative to the arts, gallery management, photography, or painting.
Send your resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include 3 references. No phone calls or walk-ins!
