The Gardiner is thrilled to announce the launch of CLAY, an original in-house restaurant offering seasonal menus of fresh, local fare in collaboration with The Food Dudes.
Opening October 20! The Gardiner has reunited for the first time more than 350 objects from Sir William Van Horne’s exceptional collection of Japanese pottery alongside archival materials and stunning watercolours.
Our annual 12 Trees fundraiser has evolved into New + Now, a celebration of national and international ceramics. View and purchase some of the world’s most extraordinary contemporary ceramic art, on display in Toronto for the first time.

A free program part of Ceramic Change: How to Make It
Akin Projects hosts a special edition of their monthly ‘Show and Tell’ for artists at The Gardiner Museum led by artist Erin Candela. Informative, supportive and fun—this is a time for artists to show completed works or works in progress and get friendly feedback and answers from their peers in a casual (this time a museum!) setting. Feel free to bring art to share, bring a friend or two or just bring yourself. Come for the conversation about art, or just to meet other artists and makers.
Akin Projects is an arts programming organization and registered nonprofit established for the purpose of providing both creative and professional development opportunities to members of Toronto’s artistic and cultural community. They have offered services to almost 5,000 individuals since our inception in 2015, including workshops, monthly art critiques, gallery tours, and open studio events.
