A few months ago, I was invited by a colleague to participate in a web-based internship. The newly-launched site is called The Gallery U and its purpose is to feature the work of college artists around the country and serve as a platform for artists to talk about art and the things that are influencing and inspiring their work.
I am one of 19 interns this semester and my job is to post new work (plus a brief description) every week for fifteen weeks. The site officially went live this week and each of the interns was introduced through self-portrait posts. My posts will go up every Friday and you can see my first post here.
Although I’m already very busy, this internship is an opportunity for me to connect with other artists and it will also provide an extra dose of pressure when it comes to producing work consistently. As I mentioned in a recent post on here, one of my goals this semester is to produce a lot of work.
Throughout the internship, all of the interns will be competing for a feature in V23, a New York-based blog which showcases the music, creative writing, photography, and art of young adults. If you like what you see and read every week, you can increase my chances of winning by clicking the little heart at the top of each article.
