Full-Time Fine Art Gallery Sales Associate
Acquisitions of Fine Art is a small, privately owned fine art gallery located in Hinsdale, IL. Our company is seeking a local, part-time or full-time sales associate specializing in 19th and 20th century fine prints, modern masters and regional artists. We are looking for a candidate who excels in sales and has a passion for fine art within a small and independent gallery environment. This is a job that provides a family-like level of support, and we are looking for someone who shares the same values and commitment as the current staff.

Candidates MUST assist in private, at-home appointments (loading art, driving to various locations and hanging work), working extended hours during busy times such as local events, holidays and private gallery shows. Light travel is required, so applicants must have a dependable mode of transportation and live close to Hinsdale. Salary and/or commission will vary by experience.
● Must have three to five years of successful sales experience (preferably working in gallery sales)
● Must live within a 1-5 mile radius of Hinsdale.
Skills & Qualifications:
