Executive Assistant - Lillian Heidenberg Fine Art

From Lyndsea Cherkasky (MFA 2007):

I am leaving my job as executive assistant at Lillian Heidenberg Fine Art and Lillian and I am trying to find someone to replace me. I have worked for her for a year and a half and am leaving on good terms, I just need to find someone to replace me! Time is of the essence because I must train someone before I leave at the end of January

The job is three days a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday with Wednesday being a half day). The person hired would be assisting Lillian with all parts of her business. It is a lot of multi-tasking and is best suited for someone who is able to concentrate on many things at once. There are many emails and phone calls, as well as managing her art collection, writing invoices, arranging shipping, ect.

Applicants can contact Lillian Heidenberg at info@lhfineart.com with their resume.

POST GRADUATE TEACHING ASSISTANT (PGTA) PROGRAM

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
The PGTA program provides unpaid teaching internships in the Master of Fine Arts program to Academy alumni. Alumni are matched with Academy instructors, and gain valuable teaching experience at the graduate level. In turn, Academy instructors are provided with a teaching assistant who strengthens the tutorial component of the curriculum.
 

POSITION DESCRIPTION

The PGTA’s core responsibility is to assist the primary instructor through the reinforcement of material covered during studio sessions. This may require attendance at 2 classes per week—one with the instructor in addition to the studio session run by the PGTA.

WHY YOU SHOULD APPLY
Participation in the PGTA program affords alumni firsthand insight into the teaching methods of seasoned veterans of the Academy and the opportunity to teach uninstructed sessions. This credential alone vastly improves the likelihood of securing a teaching position in the future.  – Peter Drake, Dean of Academic Affairs
Being a Teaching Assistant gave me very valuable experiences about being on the other side of the lecture podium and the process of teaching.  It also looks good on the resume. – Shawn Yu, MFA 2011
 
As a Teaching Assistant, I found it rewarding to be able to instruct the valuable lessons and knowledge I gained at the Academy and to support the creative growth of current students. – Katie Hemmer, MFA 2006

The Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) Program - The Bronx Museum of the Arts

AIM 33 – Open call to artists
Deadline: September 5, 2012

The Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) Program at The Bronx Museum of the Arts was established in 1980 with the objective to provide networking opportunities for emerging artists residing in the New York metropolitan area and to introduce their work to a greater audience.

AIM is structured as a “collaborative residency” in which participants work directly with established artists, collectors, art critics, curators, dealers, lawyers, and other art world professionals.

The 13-week seminar is offered annually to 36 participants, culminating with a biennial exhibition of the participants’ work in June 2013.
AIM sessions provide information, instruction, and professional guidance by addressing areas of practical concern to artists, among them curatorial practice, copyright law, exhibition and public art opportunities, gallery representation, grant writing, and marketing.

Sessions take place on Tuesdays from 6-8 pm at The Bronx Museum of the Arts and off-site locations. Among past participants in the AIM Program are Glenn Ligon—who was one of the early AIM artists and whose work was first exhibited at the Bronx Museum—and Polly Apfelbaum, Rina Banerjee, Amy Cutler, Anton Vidokle, and Pheobe Washburn.

Solo Exhibition - Vox Populi

Vox Populi offers artists living outside of the Philadelphia area the opportunity to extend and challenge their artistic development and exposure to new audiences. Proposals for solo exhibitions will be considered for one month long exhibitions. Vox is particularly interested in offering exhibitions to artists who work in experimental materials and/or employ alternative methodologies, whose work is less likely to be shown in a commercial setting. Guest artists will receive an honorarium of $500 but will be expected to arrange for their installation and deinstallation. Artists will show in one of Vox's four gallery spaces and will be grouped with other artists by Vox's artist membership. A floorplan is available at http://voxpopuligallery.org/voxfloorplan.jpg.

Call to Artists - Ground Arts Organization

Ground is a not for profit organization helping artists receive exposure and opportunities in the art market, while helping build art programs around the world for children.   We host ongoing exhibitions at our 2,000 sq. ft. space, and home base in the West Chelsea Arts Building in New York City.

We invite you to participate in our Summer 2012 competition, allowing you to win monthly prizes such as: a solo show, a published interview, an artist retreat trip, or a documentary, and take advantage of our interactive portfolio and event sharing. 
Our goal is to lend support and growth for emerging artists’ work, and to facilitate a continuing dialogue about this work.  Consistent collaboration between curators, artists, film makers, and critics provide for a continuing discussion in the contemporary art world. 

In addition, all Ground profits are used to assist schools around the world to build art programs. Encouraging a child to reach his or her creative potential inspires us.  Ground is not a charity, but rather an empowering exchange.  Please see our current project, “I am Haiti” on the Ground Arts website to learn more about what we do.

Deadline is August 10th, 2012
