The Bush Barn Art Center is going to be installing all new sustainably harvested oak (I believe) flooring. So today I worked on packing up a lot of the artwork located in the Gift Gallery section of the Art Center. I also learned how to input different art pieces into their merchandise system I guess is what you'd call it. Toward the end of the day I worked on filling out labels that will be displayed next to the individual art pieces.
Today I arranged the sculpture for the first SAA membership show at the Bush Barn Art Center. I didn't really know what to expect my first day at the gallery and was pleased with the assignment. I spent the first hour or so moving pedestals down from the second floor before arranging any pieces. The arrangement process took a lot more contemplation that I thought it would. I tried to pay attention to the spacing and placement of each individual piece toward where I thought the majority of people would be viewing from. I subconsciously placed the brightest ceramics toward the back of the room which worked out, from a distance they welcomed the viewer's gaze. Anyways I am pleased with the opportunity of this internship.
