Duties include conception and organization of an annual exhibition schedule; financial management and planning; program administration; promotion of events; supervision of temporary staff and volunteers; communication with artists and media; solicitation of outside funding from government, foundations and private sources; and the development and maintenance of links with regional, provincial and national arts communities.

The Gallery Director/Curator will work on all aspects of exhibition development and production including interpretation, presentation, documentation and care of the University’s permanent collection, and ensure the maintenance, development and promotion of the Gallery website.

The Director/Curator is responsible for teaching a course relating to curatorial practice one semester during the academic year. Further responsibilities include overseeing the planning of the 4th Year Honours Studio Exhibition and Graduate Thesis Exhibitions, as well as other periodic projects deemed appropriate by the Department Chair.
