- Ideally the candidate would live somewhat close to Coconut Grove (whenever we’ve hired someone who lives far away, they get tired of driving, ask us to “work from home” and then “flake out”)
- You can work about 15 hours per week (could be increased to 20 with exceptional performance) performed between the hours of 9am-5pm between Monday – Saturday (I like to take Sundays off).

- We are asking for a 3-6 month commitment.
- This is NOT a photography position. We are NOT looking to hire photographers or photographer assistants.
- If you already have extensive experience in arts management this position is NOT for you. You will be bored and underpaid.
- We do not have a retail gallery location and all sales will be completed online and/or through exhibits.
- If you are flaky, please don’t apply. We just don’t have time to babysit someone.
