You're not too good for any task.

Nobody starts at the top. You have to start at the bottom and earn your art world cred. Margery Gossett at Artspace111 in Fort Worth, TX had an interesting story to share:

"I was an unpaid intern at Artspace111 three years ago while in college, and now I'm the gallery director at the same gallery. I oversee the interns at Artspace111. When interns ask me for advice I always remind them that they are not too good to mop the floors, take out the trash, address and stamp hundreds of mailings, and run errands. I have done all of those and many other mundane tasks as an unpaid intern, paid intern, paid assistant, and full time gallery director. Galleries are such small operations that everyone pitches in, including owners, to help make the gallery look and operate better."
