Overview

Gage Academy of Art is a respected non-profit organization in Seattle which for over 25 years, has quietly committed itself to advancing the study of art, championing and showcasing artists, and serving as a vibrant cultural heartbeat for artists of every age, ability and economic means. Led by a hardworking board of 15 and a talented staff of 10 full-time and 10 part-time non-profit professionals, and a faculty of more than fifty outstanding Northwest artist instructors, Gage is a $2m organization with a record of financial stability and a lean, program-focused budget.  Recently the organization has made a deep investment in its infrastructure and staff talent – this position is part of that initiative to re-invent Gage for more relevance and resonance in the community. Gage’s mission is based on the belief that artists are made, not born: we exist to bring more art and artists into the world through a rich, diverse program for all ages, abilities, backgrounds and economic means. Gage complements its studio art program, free teen workshops and 4-year Atelier program with a year-round roster of free exhibits, festivals, artist “toolkits,” workshops, lectures, films, and a variety of special events.

This position leads strategic planning and implementation in the areas of Grant Acquisition, Partnership, and Corporate Sponsorship. Working closely with the Development Director, this position plays a key role in ensuring the success of Gage’s current programs and future expansion.  The ideal candidate must be a team player who also works well independently with leadership abilities and an entrepreneurial spirit, who possesses initiative, has unparalleled attention to detail, and excels in being creative, dependable, flexible, and resourceful.
