Responsiblities are; greeting guest, handling of cash and card payments, taking and processing food and drink orders, upsetting of menu items and merchandise, running orders to tables, general housekeeping and cleanliness. The restaurant is of course a 'Forrest Gump' themed restaurant, and the experience is heavily reliant on guest engagement with Forrest Gump trivia, for which we have to learn and revise.
As an intern, I would package and ship orders to clients, and receive artworks from artists who are ready to exhibit in an upcoming show or to sell their work within the gallery. The gallery has regular exhibitions, and I assisted in the curation and preparation of the exhibition space. During exhibition periods, I would invigilate and communicate with visitors, and provide information about the exhibiting artists, artists represented by atomica, and upcoming events at the gallery. I posted regularly on behalf of the gallery on their social media (pinterest, Facebook, instagram) and managed the "submissions" email account. I was also asked to research artists and 'inspiration' for future for several future projects.
Creator of artworks that featured alongside Matthew Pagett's own drawings and illustration, as an example of different artists drawing of the same subject, in 2 books; "How to sketch: Trees and Plants" and "How to sketch: People".
Working with 9 other artists, and under careful instruction of Aleksandra Mir, we worked individually and as a team for 3 weeks to create a large scale piece of art that was exhibited in a major London gallery.
