The Philadelphia Photo Arts Center (PPAC) is currently seeking an experienced individual for a part-time position of Fine Art Services Assistant. This position will work with the Master Printer to complete projects for service clients.

We are seeking an individual who has experience operating a wide format roll laminator to mount large format fine art prints. An understanding of the different materials used in the process is a must.

Candidates should also have excellent customer service and good communication skills.

While not required, candidates with experience in framing is a plus. The hours of this position will start on an as needed basis, but there is the potential to shift into a more permanent position.

The hired candidate will also have access to PPAC’s Artist Lab, so working artists with an active personal practice are strongly encouraged to apply.

Responsibilities:

  • Report to and work in collaboration with the Master Printer.
  • Operate a wide format roll laminator to face mount prints, apply film overlaminates to prints, and mount large format fine art inkjet prints to various materials, including, but not limited to: sintra, dibond, foamcore, museum board, and plexi.
  • When jobs require it, adhere wooden frames to the back of mounted prints for hanging.
  • When necessary, meet with clients to review finished work and/or collaborate to find the best possible solution.
