Become an Exeter Phoenix Gallery Invigilator

Published October 10, 2016


Are you are looking to gain experience in a contemporary arts environment, and immerse yourself in the Exeter art scene?

Exeter Phoenix has a vibrant contemporary art programme with four galleries showing a diverse range of visual arts, from our larger Phoenix Gallery which is home to a programme of cutting edge contemporary exhibitions, to the Walkway gallery that shows works from local groups and community projects.

We are looking for people to assist in invigilating our main gallery on Saturday afternoons, talking to visitors, keeping an eye on the artwork and helping collect comments.

You will get the opportunity to find out more about the exhibitions by talking with the curators and artists about their shows and be invited to attend gallery previews, talks and events.
