Dear [Mr./Mrs./Ms.] [Manager’s Name],
I’m writing to you regarding the position of Artist-in-Residence, which I discovered on [Gallery Name]’s website. I have over 5 years of related work experience, as well as a portfolio with many accomplishments, offerings, and creative achievements. I believe my body of work stands as a testament to who I am as an artist, and that my compositions would combine well with [Gallery Name].
I’ve been a freelance artist for over 3 years, and have created works for a variety of client specifications. This includes photorealistic images for three separate websites, abstract sculptures for local establishments, and art installations for a neighborhood museum. Images of this work can be seen in my portfolio, and should help you to not only get a sense of my artistic ability, but also a feeling for my diverse tastes and capacity for pleasing a wide range of clients.
I’ve also put on two exhibitions featuring my most notable work, both of which highlighted my artistic vision and ability to showcase my creative endeavors. My focus on photography and sculpture was expressed throughout these exhibitions, and the work featured in them should allow you to anticipate what I’d bring to my residency.
I’m confident that I have the work ethic, drive, and time management skills necessary to fulfill the role of Artist-in-Residence at [Gallery Name]. I look forward to learning more about the opportunity and to discussing details with you. You can reach me by phone at (895) 555 5555, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I appreciate your time and consideration.
