It has also been an incredibly busy week here at Gallery Kayafas! The new show opened Friday, April 18th and boy what an opening! This has probably been my favorite show yet. Visit our website for more info and images.
It just dawned on me that I haven’t shared my exciting news! I am now the Assistant to the Director at Gallery Kayafas!
It’s pretty funny. Now that I am almost done with school, I get the constant question, “What are your plans for once you graduate!?” And I had always said that I would like to work in a gallery, get to know the behind the scenes activities that are involved with it. But in the back of my head, I never really thought that was realistic. But then I got an email from Arlette Kayafas asking if I’d like to come in for the position of Assistant to the Director (her).
I had frequently visited the gallery for First Friday events, along with any time else they were having openings/artist talks/book signings. I later got a text from Greer Muldowney asking if I would be interested in simply serving refreshments at Bruce Myren's private artist reception. I quickly answered yes and I later did it.
I must have left a good impression because Arlette’s assistant quit and she thought of me to fill the position.
I have happily been working at Gallery Kayafas for about a two months and I couldnt be happier!
