About Gallery

Deadline for submissions for our 2019 program is 31 May 2018

Watson Arts Centre’s spacious (129m2) gallery presents exhibitions in various media but the program has a focus on ceramics. It aims for quality, diversity and professionalism in its presentations and welcomes proposals for solo and group exhibitions from emerging, mid-career and established artists. Exhibition proposals are considered on their merit and with regard to the availability of dates to present a diverse gallery program of high standards.

Located in the North Canberra suburb of Watson, the gallery is easily reached from Northbourne Avenue/Federal Highway and has ample free parking space. The gallery’s standard opening times are 10am-4pm Thursday to Sunday (and most public holidays). The gallery is equipped with a selection of plinths and three large moveable partitions. Exhibition minding is undertaken by staff.
