2017 Fall Gallery Intern
Type: Internships [View all]
Posted by: Target Gallery
Deadline: Mon, September 25th, 2017
Target Gallery, contemporary exhibition space of the Torpedo Factory Art Center, offers two unpaid internships each semester for students of Art, Art History, Arts Management, or some equivalent. Interns receive behind the scenes experience of working in a gallery setting as well as class credit.
The intern will be required to work at least 2 days a week, with one day being during the weekend, for at least 16 hours a week. The gallery director will work with the interns on scheduling so as not to interfere with their class and work schedules. Art Center hours are 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. daily and Thursdays until 9 p.m. Once a month we have our 2nd Thursday Art Night and the intern will be required to work that event and any other additional special events that may take place during their internship period.
The gallery director will work with the interns to create a focus or project for each intern to complete during their internship along with other necessary gallery duties to include but not limited to helping with installation, take down of exhibitions, sales, and so on. Some projects/focuses in the past have included creating an exhibition plan, assisting with marketing and promotion of exhibitions and special events, managing Target Gallery’s social media accounts, working on our annual special exhibition, developing special programming, workshops, and more.
This internship requires that the student be responsible, able to multitask , show initiative, possess a good work ethic, be a team player, and have a great attitude. The ability to work on MAC computers and familiarity with social networks a plus. Preferred candidate should be familiar with Adobe Creative Suite and Excel programs. Interns must feel comfortable talking about the work at the exhibit and handling potential sales. Candidates must be seeking class credit.
