    I have been working at Eli Klein Fine Art as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Learned everything there is about how to work for a top level gallery and prepared me for success in the art-world. Overwhelmingly positive experience that I would highly recommend.

    Cons

    Really not much downside. What may seem down at the time turned out to shape my career positively...

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing and doing what you do! It's been a pleasure following the gallery's successes these years.

    I worked at Eli Klein Fine Art as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Meet some of the artists, gallery openings

    Cons

    Eli Klein and his staff are rude, pretentious, and condescending. Eli is often inappropriate and his jobs for me were often "sitting pretty at the desk," inputting his contacts/business cards in his database which often included call girls from his trips to China and picking up his lunch. Learned absolutley nothing except that it's a shame people like this have a say in the art world.

    I worked at Eli Klein Fine Art full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The owner, Eli Klein, is about the most knowledge person in Chinese Contemporary Art that I have ever met. He is also the best sales person I have met, and I learned a lot watching him work. The gallery represents many of China's absolute top artists and promotes them incredibly well. Eli spends all day selling, arranging Museum shows/international exhibits for his artists and being interviewed by major news outlets. It really seemed like every week there was a new CNN, NY Times or Wall Street Journal on gallery and its artists!

    Cons

    Eli is really too busy to teach anyone, the only way to learn is to watch him work.. I feel like if he had spent more time 1 on 1 with me I could of learned a lot more! But I certainly did see that he didn't have time for that.

    I worked at Eli Klein Fine Art as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    you can learn all aspects of gallery operations, including painting the wall, installing works, preparation, translation, basic reception, delivery, office supply purchase, running errands and a lot of physical work. You will know that working in a gallery is much more than just sitting at the front desk and dressing pretty.

    Cons

    it could be very tough for a girl sometimes, because some work of art is way too heavy to carry. the working environment is not that good, too much loud chatting. interns usually asked to do a lot of stuff, but some employee doesn't work at all and behaves very unprofessionally.

    Advice to Management

    hire more guys. and let everybody work

    I have been working at Eli Klein Fine Art part-time

    Pros

    The art is wonderful to be around, your co-workers are very friendly and laid back, and for the most part it is a very relaxed environment.

    Cons

    As a lower level employee, and it seems even as an upper level one, the work can be tedious. I only work an eight hour day, but by the end of the day, I'm unusually tired.

    Advice to Management

    Laugh more!
