Job Description

We are a growing art consultancy looking to hire multiple candidates in 2 positions:
Art Consultant and Associate Art Consultant for all 3 of our locations:
Santa Monica, Las Vegas and San Francisco.

If you have an interior design background and love art, this might be your dream job. Kevin Barry Fine Art is one of the pre-eminent art consulting firms in North America. You’ll work in a gorgeous gallery with a team that designs, sources and supplies artwork that fits a design brief from our clients.

We are searching for two slightly different positions. We need Associate Art Consultants who work in our gallery, sourcing art and managing our many projects. They must have a good aesthetic, be detail oriented and push to get the right art to the right location at the right time. They support Art Consultants (the other position we need), who must sell our services and manage the associates, in addition to having a great aesthetic. Associates have the opportunity for promotion (if they want it) to become an Art Consultant. Art Consultants can be promoted to VP. We have a clear career path in art consulting.

Which position are you best fit for?

The ideal Art Consultant has at least 3-5 years’ experience in an interior design related industry & experience managing people and has sales experience. They regularly use their art & design sensibilities to come up with creative and stunning art that makes rooms come alive.

The ideal Associate Art Consultant has a design background and/or a design education and will work more inside our gallery than out in the field with clients. When the Art Consultant brings in a job, the Associate is the person who makes it come to life.

We would like to see resumes and cover letters from anyone who feels they fit in either of these positions (or in between them), who wants to work in any of our locations (Vegas, SF or Santa Monica). We expect to be hiring at all locations this year. At this moment, we have an immediate need for Art Consultants in Las Vegas and Santa Monica locations.

Submit your resume along with a cover letter that explains why you think you’re a fit, and what location you are interested in, and your thoughts on which position you are most qualified for. The cover letter is important, and we do read them.

• Pull visuals of artwork for packages based on design intent by finding and identifying artwork in our library and beyond that will fit the style and price point for the project.
