Executive Director, Manhattan Graphics Center

The Manhattan Graphics Center (MGC) is seeking its first Executive Director (ED) to put the organization on a secure footing for the next phase of its development. Manhattan Graphics Center is a fully-equipped, fine-art printmaking studio that welcomes artists of all levels of experience, providing an accessible environment for the learning and practice of printmaking.

MGC has been sustained and flourished over the course of its 33-year history through the efforts of its volunteer membership of approximately 200 artists, including a core of twenty-five key holders who provide day-to-day staffing, as well as through the hard work of its one and one-half permanent employees, a part-time bookkeeper and a part-time grant writer. As we approach the end of our current ten-year lease at our midtown location in July 2021, MGC faces the challenge of securing the funding and operational foundation to sign a new lease while continuing its mission to nurture an egalitarian and communitarian culture where artists of all levels, ages and backgrounds work together.

The ED will report to the Board and its Executive Committee and work in close collaboration with our volunteers and staff to implement strategies that strengthen the organization. MGC has secured a two-year grant to fund this position. It is our expectation that the successful candidate will use these years to work with the Board, the membership, volunteers and staff to build upon existing financial resources and programs and develop new ones, to lead the organization into the future.
