The Gardiner is thrilled to announce the launch of CLAY, an original in-house restaurant offering seasonal menus of fresh, local fare in collaboration with The Food Dudes.
See an extraordinary spectrum of contemporary works, including vessels, figurative sculpture, and abstract forms in The Diana Reitberger Collection, on display in our Modern and Contemporary Ceramics Gallery.
We're partnering with Henderson Brewing Co for a special tasting and conversation on chicha, one of the world's earliest beers. Guests will get the chance to sample an exclusive small batch fermented in special vessels made by local ceramic artist Keenan O’Toole. Tickets are limited!
The Gardiner Museum is among the few museums in the world focused on ceramics, and is one of the most important specialty museums internationally.

Empty Bowls, now in its 26th year at the Gardiner, is a North American-wide project to aid the homeless. All of the proceeds go to Anishnawbe Health Toronto, a culture-based native centre committed to changing lives through traditional healing practices. Anishnawbe’s work with the homeless has evolved from early directions of crisis intervention, to their current efforts working with those who seek to escape homelessness.
More than 400 bowls are donated by potters, potter’s guilds, and students, and delicious soups are prepared and ladled out by some of Ontario’s most eminent chefs.
Patrons line up in order to be first in line to choose their bowl, and have it filled with their choice of delicious soups. At the end of the event, take home your bowl to enjoy, knowing that all the money collected goes directly to Anishnawbe Health Toronto. Last year, we raised $15,000.
