Janice – Gallery Operations Assistant

I am the Gallery Operations Assistant at the Art Gallery of Peterborough. Besides my duties in accounting at the Gallery, I help supervise the Gallery Shop, keep an eye on the building maintenance and day to day issues as well as assist the Director with special projects, like fundraising.

A typical day may start with copy editing for a publication, meeting to discuss new product for the Gallery Shop, reviewing submissions for our consignment artists, processing the fee payments for exhibiting artists and helping prepare for an opening event in the evening.

I love the variety of my job and being in the art world. My training is in the arts and I am married to a furniture designer/maker. Living in the Kawarthas, being part of a great arts community and participating on behalf of the City by welcoming visitors to the Art Gallery of Peterborough gives me a terrific sense of achievement.

The best compliment I can receive is when a visitor tells us how much they have enjoyed our exhibitions and how they look forward to bringing friends and family back to experience all the cultural events Peterborough has to offer.
