We currently have an openings for a Gallery Intern (unpaid, educational).
Learn by participating.
The intern will be given opportunities to contribute to creation and care of exhibitions and other projects. Depending upon the aptitude of the intern and the weekly needs of the gallery, tasks could include: hospitality during visiting hours, help during events, working with artists, cleaning, social media, digital work, errand running, installation, and curation assistance. The intern could gain experience in running a gallery, designing and installing shows, promoting shows, working with artists, and thinking critically about art and showing it.
Opportunities will be created to suit the intern’s interests and ambitions. The experience should be fun, educational, and tailored to the intern’s time and schedule.
To get the most out of the experience, we recommend an intern commit to regularly participate for one show cycle: a month and a half.
Interns will be given a per diem.
