Application for Art Gallery Manager

Dear Hiring Manager,

As an Art Gallery Manager with 6 years of experience in curating and selling late 20th century and early 21st century contemporary art, I apply with enthusiasm for this opportunity.

I am currently Assistant Gallery Manager at the Bellevue Gallery, which specializes in artists such as Patricia Slnko, Richard Sunderland, and Andrea Rollo. Mirroring your requirements, I oversee 3 representatives in selling to walk-in clients, referrals and phone-in contacts, while cultivating new clientele through my extensive network. In the past year I have made $1.3M in sales, and have supervised a further $2.7M in sales by our team.  Furthermore, I rigorously maintain the gallery’s appearance and atmosphere through hangings, music, lighting, signage, and pedestals. I also assist the director in hanging and placing artworks, and ensure a constant supply of promotional literature.

In addition to my professional expertise, I hold an MA in Modern and Contemporary Art History from SAIC in Chicago. These experiences, alongside my own work as a contemporary artist (I am especially passionate about figurative art), have given me a deep knowledge of modern and contemporary art from the 1860s to the present. My portfolio can be viewed at 

I am ready to step into a dynamic Gallery Manager role where I can apply my energy and enthusiasm for contemporary art to the gallery’s sales and promotional efforts. Your gallery has a phenomenal reputation – it would be a privilege to lead your talented team!

Please find attached my résumé for your consideration. Thank you very much for your time. I look forward to hearing from you regarding next steps.

Yours sincerely,

Julia Summers
