Our annual 12 Trees fundraiser has evolved into New + Now, a celebration of national and international ceramics in support of our clay education and outreach programs, and special exhibitions throughout the year. As one of the world’s only museums dedicated to ceramics, the Gardiner is committed to championing clay and supporting up-and-coming as well as established artists working in the medium.
New + Now kicks off with an exclusive preview gala of our new International Ceramic Art Exposition featuring outstanding Canadian ceramics alongside cutting-edge works from top international gallerists, and the opening of David R. Harper: Zodiac, a spectacular museum-wide installation. View and purchase some of the world’s most extraordinary contemporary ceramic art, on display in Toronto for the first time.
Tickets for our annual fundraising gala sell out each year!
