Bryan Ohno Gallery & Urban Art Concept

Internships Summer 2020

Now accepting internship applications for Bryan Ohno Gallery and Urban Art Concept (www.urbanartconcept.com). Gallery interns will work closely with owner Bryan Ohno to gain hands-on experience in corporate acquisitions and acquire an intimate understanding of daily gallery operations. There are currently two unique positions available.

The gallery encourages both undergraduate and graduate students with interest in art or art history; business majors and students with entrepreneurial interests. Students curious to learn about the operation of a small business will find this internship extremely rewarding. The gallery seeks individuals who have a zest for creative thinking and problem solving. Typical gallery assignments will range from implementing business strategy and marketing, to art writing and exhibition curating. From drafting a professional email to speaking in front of an audience, this position is an opportunity to polish and prepare for the business world.

Candidates should possess strong writing skills and a working knowledge of photo and video editing programs is helpful.


The internship positions require a minimum of 12 hours a week: 3 hours x 3 days onsite (at the gallery) and 3 hours remotely.

The gallery will also work with students and schools to ensure that those seeking academic credit for their internship experience fulfill all requirements.

About the Gallery:

The Bryan Ohno Gallery, selected as one the “Top 10 Contemporary Art Galleries” in Seattle by The Culture Trip, features works that blur the line between art and science, challenge artistic traditions, and embrace evolving cultural intersections. The gallery first opened its doors in 1996 in Pioneer Square and has since relocated to the International District, a thriving artists' neighborhood.

Positions Available:                      Summer 2020

Gallery Curator Intern  

If you have ever had the aspirations towards organizing art exhibits from the ground up in an entrepreneurial environment, this job is for you! While holding a foundation for art history is wildly helpful, I look for a personality and a savvy eye for the current contemporary art scene. You will coordinate the exhibits under the vision of the gallery director.  

During your internship, you can expect to visit artist studios, communicate with artists, execute contracts, prepare/install/de-install the gallery exhibitions, coordinate art openings and media relations. The exhibits will act as a launching platform for the corporate art acquisition opportunities.
