The interns for the Public Education Foundation are responsible for gallery shows.  They are the ones who mat and frame the images seen in the gallery.  The interns also create the inventory, artist statements, and name and price tags.  They also are the ones who hang the show, host the show, and take down the show.  This is a great opportunity because they now have the experience of maintaining a gallery show.

I am Alexandra Tockoski, I am a senior at West Career and Technical Academy. Through the internship opportunity provided by Mrs Pavesich, I have been able to have many experiences that I would not otherwise have been exposed to. We have gained experience in preparation of galleries (matting and framing), hanging galleries, managing activities with groups of people, managing a website, and a variety of other responsibilities. In the future, I plan on entering the photography and design field and I feel as though this internship has prepared me for that.

I'm Madeline Mancini, and I'm a senior year at West Tech. Working for Mrs Pavesich and the Public Education Foundation has been an amazing opportunity; through it, I'm able to be a part of the behind the scenes work of the photo program, whether it be editing the website or hanging up gallery work. This internship has also been particularly helpful for me, as I plan to go into the photography and graphic design field for my college education and work.

I've learned so many new things through this internship that will help me with my photography career in the future. During this internship I've had the chance to learn how to run and hang a gallery. This has been one of the best learning opportunities I've had.
