Elder Gallery of Contemporary Art has been named Charlotte’s Best Art Gallery two years in a row and we are looking to grow our team. We are looking for an enthusiastic, outside-the-box-thinker who desires a flexible schedule and is excited about growing Charlotte’s cultural community. We represent a wide variety of artists – many create work that pushes the envelope and sparks lively dialogue, others focus on art’s ability to bring calm and simple beauty to our world, but all have achieved mastery and excellence in their craft. We place artwork in homes, businesses, non-profits, and public locations, consult with individuals, designers, and corporate clients, and create programs and experiences that use artwork to encourage conversation and critical thinking.
