I WISH I HAD AN ASSISTANT!
I have once served as an assistant to another artist though. While an undergrad student at Georgetown College I had an opportunity in an art history class to serve as an assistant to Carolann Freid. Dr. Freid is a local artist in Georgetown, KY and unfortunately doesn't have a website. I helped install and prepare a large installation in her backyard. I don't really remember much from the experience other than artists are particular people and that I thought installation art was weird at the time (I was a sophomore I believe). It was fun to hang out in her gorgeous back yard and her about some of her ramblings.
I also was a gallery director assistant while in undergrad. That was a really wonderful experience for me. I helped with everything. Finding artists to exhibit, receiving, installing and de-installing work, sending thank you cards, data entry, errand running, etc. for the galleries at GC. I really enjoyed it but I'm not sure it would be a job I would want full responsibility of- a lot of organizing and planning- which I'm not bad at, but its not fun per say.
But, yes I would love to have an assistant. Taking applications for unpaid internship assistantship?
I am a contemporary artist focused on the intersection of art and science in Lexington, KY.
