Janet Dawson (b. 1935) is a painter, printer, teacher and stage designer. She trained at the National Gallery School, Melbourne, and won a NGV Travelling Scholarship to study painting, lithography and etching at the Slade School and the Central School in London. Since then she has had more than 20 solo exhibitions, including a survey exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria in 1979. She has been included in nearly 100 group exhibitions and major surveys of contemporary Australian works and is represented in all major public collections in Australia. In 1996 the National Gallery of Australia mounted a retrospective of her work, The Drawings of Janet Dawson, 1956 to the Present, and in 2006-2007 the Bathurst Regional Gallery's Janet Dawson Survey 1953-2006 toured widely.
