Interns at Windisch-Hunt Fine Art

Tea Time with Chrystele and Hasti
INTERN a. A student or a recent graduate undergoing supervised practical training without pay in order to gain work experience.

This month I've been blessed not just with one intern but two. They do not get compensated they are on a limited schedule and they are worth their weight in gold. This gallery with more than 8,000 sq. ft. it is a large undertaking. Chrystele is from France on leave from her business school. Her interest in art brought her here as she also works in a gallery in Paris and some of what she will do is a comparison study. We have 17 gallery artists and bring in guests monthly. We change out the art monthly we participate in the art stroll and have other venues where we showcase our artists. Having an intern is a blessing. Hasti hails from Sweden and came to us after working for a collector who thought she might go on the road to divest his vast collection. Hasti is a Grovite and lives only blocks from here, lucky for her or lucky for me?
I document my life and gallery doings via photos daily. I now realize I forgot what all was done just yesterday. Both young women were here working dilegently, and by looking at the photos realize how much more was done. I encourage both to keep a log and participate in the blog via their musings Hans Feyerabend picking up his sculpture

and this in turn will help you the reader to see the inner workings of a gallery, not just the glitz of a beautiful window or opening receptions. ART on our end is WORK
