Meet ArtWorks’ newest intern, Emmaline Carter.
Tell us about yourself.
I am 21 years old (almost 22!) I am currently a fourth year at the University of Cincinnati within the school of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning majoring in Fine Arts with a track in photography.
What are your future career goals?
My future career goals are to continue my studio work as a contemporary, conceptual photographer and to hopefully do an apprenticeship in the next couple years. On the side, I’d also love to continue doing freelance commercial work by combining my love for music and art through album cover photography/design.
Why did you pick this opportunity?
I applied for this opportunity because it seemed like a great way to create connections within the art/photo world, as well as a great way to discover new artists in general. I also wanted to work here in order to contribute to something bigger than myself as a whole through bettering lives in the community.
What are you looking forward as an ArtWorks intern?
I’m looking forward to discovering other artists and photographers that I can learn from. I’m also excited to be working with other local galleries and organizations, and to be doing something that supports other artists in the community.
