My Time At The Gallery: Emily O'Shea
At The Green Tree Gallery I have been allowed to work in a variety of different areas. I was able to aid in customer service in which I really enjoyed interacting with buyers and discussing their own artistic interests. I was also able to create different displays of artists work and understand how to attract the eye to certain pieces using different heights and dimensions.
Following this I began looking into the online media of the gallery. I was able to photograph pieces of artwork and then to edit them before writing a post and uploading them to Facebook. My experience here as allowed me to gain an insight into the amount of work that is required to run a business such as the gallery, which I feel will be extremely useful in my future.
I have really enjoyed exploring the array of artistic techniques used by the artists which has really inspired me to experiment with different art methods in my own work. I also really love how the gallery appeals to a range of different people from young children to eager art collectors through the range of interesting pieces displayed.
The exhibition “Reflection” has interestingly brought in a great deal of glass work to the gallery. I love how these pieces have been reflecting through the summer sunshine and really brightening up the gallery.
I have really enjoyed my time at The Green Tree Gallery and have gained such a great experience working in the art industry and having done so in such a lovely environment.
