Curator

The Visual Arts Centre of Clarington is a non-collecting public gallery exhibiting local, regional, and national contemporary visual art and offering arts education in the Durham Region. Located in a 19th-century barley mill on the banks of Soper Creek in Bowmanville, the gallery offers both traditional white-walled exhibition space and a stunning unrestored loft installation space as well as studio classrooms. Its mission is to utilize art to create an inclusive space to exchange ideas, ask questions and make connections.

Reporting to the Executive Director of the VAC, the Curator is responsible for setting the overall curatorial direction of the gallery and ancillary venues (the Municipal Administrative Centre, the Bowmanville branch of the Clarington Public Library, etc.). The Curator will plan and realize exhibitions from concept to installation and liaise with the Education staff to develop multi-level exhibition and education programs around the central curatorial themes.
