Gallery Intern

1708 Gallery offers part-time, non-paid internship positions for credit and non-credit. Interns receive hands-on experience and resume-building skills in all aspects of 1708 Gallery's operations, including:

  • installation and de-installation of exhibitions and artist relations
  • gallery openings and receptions and event planning
  • educational programs, tours, and gallery sitting
  • fundraising, PR, and marketing
  • nonprofit gallery administration

1708 Gallery internships last approximately 5 months and typically follow college semesters - Spring (Jan. - May), Summer (May - Sept.), and Fall (Sept. - Jan.).

We are currently accepting applications for the summer 2021 semester. Please submit by April 30, 2020.

Due to covid-19 our interns will be working semi-virtually so access to a computer and internet is preferred but not required. We are adaptable to the changing pandemic and when working with interns and their social distancing boundaries.

If you're interested in applying for an internship position, please fill out this internship application and submit along with your resume and cover letter to our Operations Manager, Christine Lockerby, at clockerby@1708gallery.org or by mail to 1708 Gallery, PO Box 12520, Richmond, VA 23241.
