About Gallery

Submissions for our 2020 program are now closed. 

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 Tuesday to Sunday. The gallery is equipped with a selection of plinths and three large movable partitions. Exhibition minding is undertaken by staff.

Service fees for the 2020 exhibition program: $1550 for three weeks (minimum exhibition period, includes install week); $450 for subsequent weeks.
