The Watts Gallery in Compton, Surrey, is looking for a new Curator.

To quote their job summary:

Watts Gallery Trust (WGT), a registered charity, is seeking to recruit a dynamic, emerging Curator to join the Curatorial Team. The successful candidate will develop exhibitions and displays that engage the widest range of audiences with the art and ideas of the Victorian and Edwardian era. They will also work closely with WGT’s fine and decorative art collection, ensuring its ongoing care, development, display and interpretation. Working within the team, they will play a central part in the development of digital interventions to increase global access to the work of George Frederic and Mary Watts.

The salary on offer is between £28,000 - £32,000, and applications must be in by 13th November 2020.

It really is worth visiting the gallery if you're ever down that way. Its idyllic setting and sumptuous collection is very special. Here's another video featuring the gallery's former curator Richard Jefferies, whose descriptions of Watt's paintings never fails to lift my spirits.

Good luck if you're applying!
