Students often take advantage of opportunties to work for our on-campus galleries in paid positions.
Since its opening in 2006, the Hedreen Gallery has become a high-profile exhibition space in the Seattle area bringing artists of local, national and international import to campus. The Hedreen Gallery Assistants provide another real-world opportunity for students to apply their skills in articulating art historical issues, particularly concerning the contemporary art world. Students gain a close-up look at the way art professionals think about the intersection of art works, ideas and the public by working directly with the curator and exhibiting artists in installing shows and through discussing the works on display.
Students staff the Hedreen Gallery in the Lee Center for the Arts; open and close the gallery; provide information to guests; maintain security of artwork; answer questions about the artwork and exhibition concepts; work with the Hedreen Gallery Curator and Fine Arts Operations Manager in matters of artist relations, research, exhibition installation, and opening receptions.
The recently renovated Vachon Gallery (Fine Arts Bldg) and the brand new Kinsey Gallery (Admissions Bldg) offer a series of exhibitions featuring student work and local artists. Student Assistants work with faculty curator(s) to plan, implement, and promote exhibitions in these spaces. While these positions do not require regular attendance or daily gallery operations, they rely more heavily on hands-on experiences in terms of exhibition planning and installation technique.
Students seeking such employment should check with the department office to determine the current availability of positions and application materials. Employment is competitive.
