Union Gallery is committed to providing students with hands-on, professional gallery experience through our participation in Queen's University Work Study Program. UG regularly offers Work Study positions in the Fall-Winter semesters. Work Study students have the opportunity to engage with the public as gallery attendants and assist staff with a wide range of gallery activity, including: research; design; videography; installation; fundraising; and promotions. Students contribute toward and gain valuable insight and hands-on experience in the day-to-day operations of a public gallery.

We currently have two open positions for Summer 2024: Program Assistant and Gallery Assistant.


Eligibility is determined on the basis of demonstrated financial need for registered undergraduate and graduate students in any year of any department at Queen's University. Visit Queen's Student Awards for more information about eligibility and important dates. For more information, or if you have any questions, please reach out: / 613.533.3171


Union Gallery is committed to equity, diversity and inclusion in all aspects of our programming and operations. UG welcomes applications from qualified individuals of all sexualities, races, gender identities, socioeconomic statuses, and (dis)abilities. We strongly encourage applications from equity-seeking communities. UG recognizes that BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Colour), QPOC (Queer People of Colour) and 2SLGBTQIA+ (Two-Spirit, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, +) are disproportionately underrepresented within institutional art spaces. Due to ongoing systemic barriers, UG prioritizes applicants who self-identify as BIPOC, QPOC, 2SLGBTQIA+. If you would like to, please indicate if you self-identify as a member of any equity-seeking groups in your application.

UNION GALLERY is funded and supported by Queen's University, Alma Mater Society (AMS), Society of Graduate and Professional Students (SGPS), Ontario Arts Council, City of Kingston Arts Fund–Kingston Arts Council and the City of Kingston, with partnerships with Stauffer Library, Cultural Studies, Screen Cultures and Curatorial Studies, and Art History and Art Conservation.
