GALLERY DIRECTOR POSITION
Gallery 110 enriches the Seattle arts culture by supporting emerging artists in the Pacific Northwest. A 28-member artist collective, Gallery 110 has exhibited the work of over 150 artists in its 16-year existence in Seattle’s Pioneer Square. Considered one of the best independent non-profit galleries in the Seattle/King County area, Gallery 110 last year received a sustaining grant from the 4Culture Organization. We exhibit the work of our member artists, affiliate artists, and guest artists, as well as organizing and hosting an Annual International Juried Exhibition, now in its ninth year, aided by prominent jurors from the Pacific NW museums and art community.
Gallery 110 is seeking a full-time Director. A candidate with previous art gallery experience will be preferred. The Director oversees marketing and sales: advising on promotions and exhibitions that stimulate public interest while developing relationships with artists, clientele, the arts community, and the press. This job requires knowledge of art history and familiarity with the contemporary art scene in the Pacific NW as well as the ability to manage our member artists and gallery operations. The Director maintains sales records, contracts, documents, archival records, client database, and the Gallery’s website. We offer a base salary of $18,000/year plus a generous commission on sales and expect the Director to be present in the gallery during business hours (noon-5pm Thursday – Saturday) with additional hours to complete promotional, managerial and operations duties as needed.
We are looking for a Director who is in love with art, has a confident ‘eye’ for good art, and can articulate and share that enthusiasm with others, promoting investments in our artists’ work. As the public interface for Gallery 110 you will be instrumental in attracting new talent to the gallery as well as new clients. In managing Gallery 110 you will have the opportunity to make the gallery more successful, propelling it onto the regional and national stage.
