Subject: Application for position of Art Gallery Assistant
Dear Mr. Pritchett,
I wish to apply for the position of Art Gallery Assistant as advertised. I have the necessary skills and qualifications for this post, as well as the necessary experience. I therefore believe that what I have to offer to Floating World Gallery will be of great benefit to the company.
I have a B.S Degree in Fine Arts from Brown University Providence, RI. I also have 6 years experience working as an Art Gallery Assistant at Enterprise Arts.
I have always had a deep love and understanding of the arts since an early age, and I have followed it all my life, furthering my personal education in the arts whenever I could, as well as training professionally for the post I am applying for.
I have considerable experience in cataloguing acquisitions and keeping meticulous records. I have also had experience in planning and organizing exhibitions. This has also involved the initial interpretation of the exhibition and ensuring that the accompanying information flows logically and correctly from a visitor’s perspective.
I have a strict eye for detail and I fully understand the importance of perfection in any exhibition that will be scrutinized by the general public. I also understand that the proper layout of an exhibition can add considerably to its perceived worth.
I feel sure that my proven ability to manage and maintain the highest standards as an Art Gallery Assistant will be of the greatest benefit to Floating World Gallery and I have confidence that I can make a significant contribution to the company.
I may be contacted at (999)-265-8290, or by email at email@example.com. I look forward to the opportunity of meeting you at interview level, and I thank you for the opportunity to be considered for the post of Art Gallery Assistant.
