Summer 2019


Arts Programming interns work with our Programming and Exhibitions Manager. They help put on our summer exhibitions and summer festivals, and learn all about running an arts organization. This includes (but certainly isn’t limited to) curating, press, marketing, event planning, installation, gallery management. We’re a small, young organization, so arts programming interns have a unique opportunity to contribute to the long-term identity of the organization and take on substantial responsibility.

Things you might help out with:

  • Our Summer Benefit

  • Gallery sitting

  • Our Summer Exhibition application process, curation, promotion, and installation

  • Planning, setup, and logistics for our Summer Festival

  • Our artist residency application process and logistics

  • Managing our artist residency program and events

  • Marketing initiatives

  • Managing your own projects!



  • Must be available to live onsite 5 days per week in Wassaic, NY, including weekends (days off will be weekdays). A car is recommended but not required.



  • Housing and a shared studio space is provided

  • Modest living stipend

  • Free access to our wood shop and screenprinting studio

  • Meet and work closely with over dozens of artists-in-residence and over 100 Summer Exhibition and Summer Festival artists
