Board of Directors: Volunteer

The Robert McLaughlin Gallery is a vibrant and engaging art gallery dedicated to sharing and protecting the stories of our communities through art, shared authority, education, and engagement. The Gallery is a meeting place for exploration and experimentation, a place where art, artists, and the community come together in conversation.

The RMG is a free-access public art gallery located in Oshawa, Ontario. We are the largest gallery in Durham Region, having an impact on the national, provincial and local arts landscapes. The RMG features a robust schedule of exhibitions, a dynamic education program and engaging multidisciplinary events. We are the stewards of a Permanent Collection of over 4,800 works of art of national significance. We strive to make a difference in our community.

The RMG Board of Trustees sets policy, exercises oversight and provides strategic direction for the important work of the Gallery. Trustees’ terms are voluntary positions for a period of 3 years with the option to renew.

We are currently looking for community members to join the Board who…

  • Share our vision and passion for increasing interaction with, and awareness of modern and contemporary art.
  • Are committed to providing meaningful, community based arts experiences for those in Durham Region and beyond.
  • Bring a diversity of experience, cultures and backgrounds.
