This summer, the Gardiner Museum is breaking down barriers and moving beyond traditional museum spaces to increase access and meet our communities where you feel safe. Join us now for pop-up window exhibitions, outdoor dining, and public art projects, followed by family clay activities, wellness workshops, performances, and more.
During our temporary closure, we're posting exhibitions and selections from our collection online. Discover Inuit ceramics, Chinese and Japanese porcelain, pottery from the Ancient Americas, and more!
On Thursday June 24 at 1 pm, Chief Curator and Deputy Director Sequoia Miller will be live online with artist Kahlil Robert Irving. Kahlil has received critical acclaim for his gritty ceramics and internet collages that examine contemporary life. Register for free now!
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!
With the Museum closed temporarily, we need your support to continue to offer innovative and engaging exhibitions, programs, and community projects online, as well as plan for the future. Please consider making a donation to help us build community with clay.
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.
