Somerville Manning Gallery in Greenville, Delaware seeks an organized and detail-oriented full-time Gallery Assistant/Registrar, for immediate hire. For over thirty years, Somerville Manning Gallery has introduced current art trends to the Brandywine Valley, an area already steeped in a rich art tradition, by mounting exhibitions that relate to our cultural heritage both past and present. We specialize in 20th and 21st century fine art and sculpture, including the Brandywine School of Illustrators, the Wyeth Family, and artists from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
