General Fall and Spring Submissions

As part of its mission to inspire and educate Dawson students and community, the Warren G. Flowers Art Gallery hosts 3 to 4 external exhibitions from curators or local, professional artists per year. Given this pedagogical focus, the gallery seeks artists who are available and interested in activities such as lectures, interviews, and workshops to introduce and contextualize their work. The college offers honoraria both for exhibiting and many of these pedagogical activities.

Please note that the gallery does not have a budget for the transportation of artwork, either within the city or from outside. Artists are expected to deliver their work, and be present and active during installation.

Composed of faculty from the Creative and Applied Arts Department and Dawson community, the Warren G. Flowers Art Gallery Committee evaluates submissions biannually. The deadlines are October 30 and April 30 of each calendar year. Proposals from artists and curators should preferably be sent electronically, and be MAC compatible.  EMAIL A SINGLE PDF DOCUMENT not more than 5 Mb total, with a maximum of 4 video links or 20 images to rmeier@dawsoncollege.qc.ca. Jpgs of images should be no more than 1 Mb each.

  2. A paragraph addressing your level of comfort and interest in pedagogical activities, including specific ideas if you have
  3. A curriculum vitae.
  4. A maximum of 20 images or 4 links to video or audio work (embedded in the PDF).
