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.
Meet the next generation of ceramic artists in this exhibition showcasing the work of Ceramics graduates from the Bachelor of Craft and Design program at Sheridan College.
The Gardiner’s partnership with the Ceramics Program at Sheridan College is longstanding. Each year, the Museum presents an exhibition featuring the work of the graduating cohort. For the students, this celebratory exhibition is the culminating point of many years of hard work.
Latin for brave, daring and bold; a fitting title for the 2021 graduating class of Sheridan College Bachelor of Craft and Design program. During their time at Sheridan, this group faced challenges from the difficult (the province-wide faculty strike in 2017) to the earth shaking (the global pandemic of 2020-21). These two events bookended their time as students, but they did not take away from their growth and development as artists and makers. As a group they emerge here, a tough and resilient class: the Audax 8.
As we await the reopening of the Museum, we invite you to discover the online version of the exhibition on Google Arts & Culture.
