Director/Curator, Dunlop Art Gallery

Reporting to the Library Director, and as a member of the management team, the Director/Curator, Dunlop Art Gallery (DAG) is responsible for the overall operations of the gallery and for the creative management of this unit within the mandate and policies approved by the Regina Public Library Board. The position’s areas of responsibility include exhibitions, public programs and education (such as lectures, workshops and film presentations), touring exhibitions, promotion and collection management of the RPL permanent collection, DAG Art Rental Collection and DAG Research Centre.

Located within the Regina Public Library, the Dunlop Art Gallery presents a wide and varied program which includes exhibitions, residencies, interpretive programs, community collaborations and scholarly publications. The DAG exhibits in two gallery spaces in two locations and actively participates with the vibrant and engaged Regina arts community.

More than half of the gallery’s programming is curated by the Dunlop staff. The DAG also includes a bibliographic resource centre, an art rental service and a permanent collection representing Saskatchewan Artists. More information about the Dunlop can be found at

This position requires a Master of Fine Arts degree from an accredited university program, or the equivalent combination of arts education and experience, and formal training in arts/culture management, as well as five to seven years of progressive experience in the field of arts management, preferably in gallery administration, and experience in the fields of Visual Arts, Art History, Communication Studies, Cultural Studies, Studio Art or a related discipline.

Salary is negotiable based on the qualifications and experience of the successful applicant. The Library does offer a highly competitive salary starting in the mid to high seventies.

Regina is a dynamic, progressive community, with a strong, diversified economy and a quality of life that is exceptional. It’s a city with a population of approximately 200,000 that celebrates its cultural diversity and is known for its generous, friendly people. Where else in Canada can you enjoy top-notch big city attractions while taking only 20 minutes to get from one end of the city to another?
