Certificate IV in Fine Arts graduate Timothy Dale has been in continuous employment in the arts industry since finishing his study at Nepean Arts and Design Centre, TAFE Western Sydney Institute in 2006.
Timothy works as a exhibition installer, a job which is also known by the name of 'preparator'.
As a freelance installer in the museums and art industry, Timothy has worked for such clients as the Art Gallery of NSW, The Bien n ale of Sydney, and a whole host of Regional Galleries, commercial galleries and other clients such as local councils and the Australia Council for the Arts. In addition, Timothy handles and installs work by many great artists past and present in private homes throughout Sydney.

The exhibition practice skills and thorough and practical knowledge of art practices Timothy learnt at Nepean TAFE have stood him in great stead in his professional life. Recent career highlights have included installing work for the Biennale of Sydney, and for John Kaldor projects at the Art Gallery of NSW.
"My time spent at Nepean TAFE was a great lasting experience where hands-on practical skills in the arts industry were gained", says Timothy.
Timothy's long term goal is to obtain a senior installation position in a museum or gallery in Australia or overseas, and with his impressive track record so far, we have no doubt he will achieve his dream.
