“Duties include front desk maintenance, interacting with the general public, research, errands, and administrative projects…”

Get beyond the lovely talk flattering potential workers and it sounds like this for-profit gallery needs a receptionist not an unpaid intern. This is a job not a training position. Pay your interns please.
