Gallery NAGA offers internship positions, on a volunteer basis only, to Boston-area students and graduates who are interested in the field of arts administration and who wish to learn about the Boston contemporary art world.
Gallery NAGA is one of the leading contemporary art galleries in Boston. We focus on promoting painting, photography, holography, and sculpture by Boston and New England artists. In addition, we represent and exhibit work by nationally known studio furnituremakers.
We are looking for individuals who will be interested in learning administrative, registrarial, and curatorial skills in the setting of a contemporary art gallery. Interns assist with the selection, installation, and lighting of art work for exhibition and with preparations for receptions and special events. They also have contact with the public, collectors, and gallery artists. The registrarial aspect of the program includes inventory record keeping and preparing art for transport.
Prospective interns should be willing to commit to a full semester, for example, September through January or February through June. Summer internships are also available. The gallery hours are 10 to 5:00, Tuesday through Saturday. Interns typically work two full days per week, on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday.
If you are interested, please mail or e-mail a resume and cover letter to the gallery and call for an interview (617) 267-9060. Two internships per semester are available.
