Full-Time Executive Director
The Trustees of the Hermitage Artist Retreat seek an Executive Director to lead the organization into its future.
The Hermitage consists of five restored and adapted historic buildings and one contemporary building on approximately 8 acres on the barrier island of Manasota Key, Englewood, Florida. Founded in 2002 as a project of the Sarasota County Arts Council, the Hermitage has grown to become a significant national artist community serving mid-career artists in all disciplines. The mission of the Hermitage Artist Retreat is to “inspire the artists of today” and it expresses its values of excellence, access, and exemplary service to both artists and community at every opportunity. The Hermitage provides a “boutique” experience for some of today’s most significant creators. All residencies in our core program are curated by our National Curatorial Council and work created at the Hermitage has been produced and exhibited at major venues throughout America and the world. Other Hermitage programs serve artists with families, Florida public school arts teachers, and Sarasota County artists. The Hermitage hosts residencies 11 months of the year, with one month off (September) for facility maintenance and repairs.
The successful candidate will have a significant and effective history of broad engagement in the arts community, a passion for the arts and artists and a proven track record of inspiring philanthropy with superior interpersonal and speaking skills.
Work experience in an artist community is a plus but not a necessity.
As a visionary leader of a small staff, he or she should enthusiastically enjoy “doing what it takes” to reinforce the Hermitage brand and experience on an everyday basis.
