Like many of you, we have been closely following the developments of COVID-19. The safety of our visitors, campers, staff, and volunteers is our top priority. Upon the advice of Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. David Williams, the Gardiner Museum will close temporarily effective Saturday March 14, 2020.
We will continue to take guidance from our public health officials regarding the duration of the closure and will post updates to our website and social media channels as they become available. We are grateful for your support and thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to navigate this challenging time. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Gardiner soon.
The starting dates of our Spring Clay Classes will be delayed. Rest assured that no cancellation penalties will go into effect before the revised dates have been announced. We are working to develop a new schedule as quickly as possible and appreciate your understanding.

Toronto-based sculptor Nurielle Stern presents a response to the exhibition Ai Weiwei: Unbroken. Displayed in a case outside the entrance to the exhibition, these smaller-scale ceramic sculptures reflect on the grand scope of the themes of Ai Weiwei’s works by focusing on the intimacy of a daily studio practice.
About the Artist
Nurielle Stern is an emerging artist and a graduate of Alfred University’s renowned MFA program in Ceramic Art (New York, USA). Her works are saturated with texture and vibrant glazes, giving them a hyper-real quality. Stern makes tangible a fictional world of her own imagining creating things that are at once strange and familiar.
