The Gardiner Museum is open seven days a week! Explore our permanent collection, discover special exhibitions, and get hands-on with clay in our studios. We look forward to welcoming you.
Discover an exhibition of new work in our lobby by members of Inspirations Studio, a unique low-barrier ceramics program in Toronto for women and gender diverse people who have experienced marginalization.
Our Joy of Ceramics fundraiser returns on October 27, featuring a presentation by Sarah Milroy, Chief Curator at the McMichael Gallery, who will talk about a work by Shary Boyle, including its many meanings and her decision to donate it. This event sells out every year!
Every object in our permanent collection can be accessed through our eMuseum portal. Learn about individual collecting areas, like Italian Maiolica or Modern and Contemporary Ceramics, or search the full collection by keyword. You'll be amazed by what you discover!
Help us continue to offer innovative and engaging exhibitions, programs, and community projects in person and online, as well as plan for the future. Please consider making a donation today.
Community Arts Space 2021
In collaboration with participants from Nia Centre for the Arts
Established in 2016, Community Arts Space (CAS) is the Gardiner’s incubator for arts-based projects that build community through clay making.
In October 2021, the Gardiner and Nia Centre for the Arts partnered to offer a series of free clay workshops for Black community members looking to experiment with the medium. 10 participants were led by instructor Adam Williams. In addition to hands-on making, participants attended inspiring talks by Black ceramic artists Christine Nnawuchi and Sharon Norwood.
The experiences of the participants and images of their work are shared on the Nia Centre’s blog.
