Application for Gallery Assistant

Dear Hiring Manager,

As an art history graduate with a passion for modern and contemporary masters, I apply with enthusiasm for this opportunity.

I recently completed my MA in Modern and Contemporary Art History at SAIC in Chicago, where I elected the Design History pathway. Some of the courses I took include Theories of Things: Art/Design/Object, Urbanization and Its Discontents, Critical Terms in Modern Architecture, Typographic Modernity & Print, Design and the Body, Disability/Art/Design, Biopolitics and Data Visualization, and Vernacular, Colonial, Global: Modern Architecture at the End of Empire.

During my final year, I completed a summer internship at the Bellevue Gallery, which focuses on North American works from the late 20th to early 21st centuries. I thoroughly enjoyed greeting and guiding visitors, opening and closing the gallery, assisting with events, and helping to install exhibits. 

My degree and internship, alongside my work as a contemporary artist (I am especially passionate about figurative and geometric art), have given me deep knowledge of modern and contemporary art from the 1860s to the present. I welcome the opportunity to not only surround myself with art on a daily basis, but to make a meaningful contribution to memorable cultural and learning experiences for visitors. Your gallery has a phenomenal reputation – I would love to join your 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,

Amy Wall
