Contemporary Jewelry Gallery seeks Fall intern

Heidi Lowe, metalsmith and gallery owner is accepting applications for a Fall internship at Heidi Lowe Gallery.  Applicants need to possess basic metalsmithing skills as well as organizational, office, camera and computer skills. It is also imperative that the applicants are very personable and trustworthy; having a good grasp on the history of jewelry is also a plus.  The intern will be learning about all aspects of the gallery and studio.  The internship will include designing and making jewelry, working with customers, as well as the behind the scenes aspects of operating a gallery, such as organizing openings, e-commerce and marketing, artists files and helping with display.

Heidi Lowe Gallery is a unique gallery space offering a fresh perspective on what jewelry can be; therefore, each piece is fun, unusual and thought provoking. The purpose of the space is to connect the public to innovative jewelry by studio artists. The exhibiting artists have the common goal to expand the publics’ idea of the meaning and uses of jewelry.

The intern is expected to work 30 hours a week from September till December 20th.  The hours are flexible but will include some nights and weekends.

Compensations for this internship will consist of an intimate hands-on knowledge of gallery operations, studio facilities, and possible credits from institution (dependant on school requirements), and 10% of sales he or she finalizes.
