Current Job Opportunities

The Gallery is seeking a highly organized professional for the position of Gallery Assistant. Application deadline is Friday, February 16th at 10am. Employment starts Monday, February 26, 2018 at 9am. For a detailed job description, please download this PDF: Job Posting.


Artist Proposals

The Durham Art Gallery generally produces exhibitions based on curatorial research and does not actively solicit exhibition proposals. Artists are welcome to send information about their work, which could be considered in future programming decisions.

The Gallery has two primary exhibition streams. The West Gallery is for professional artists with established exhibition records; the Gallery pays an artist fee and helps with the delivery of the work. The East Gallery is for local or emerging artists; the Gallery does not pay a fee.

In both cases the Gallery coordinates installation, and produces and mails an invitation. Exhibition openings in both galleries happen at the same time. A floorplan is available here.


Exhibition Assistance Funding

The Gallery is an Ontario Arts Council Exhibition Assistance Recommender. If you live in our region and have a professional exhibition (in this region or elsewhere) you can request funds to help cover the costs of shipping or framing.

Please visit the Ontario Arts Council website to download program guidelines, an application form and to see a map of the exhibition assistance zones.
