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.
Danica Drago is an artist, maker, and educator from Etobicoke, Ontario, but calls many places home. Graduating from the Material Art & Design program at OCAD University, Danica’s practice as a tool and object maker investigates the ways in which art, design, and craft intersect, by creating functional objects that interact with the body and the spaces around us.
As an avid explorer of materials, their work is not bound to one medium but rather interested in the materiality of processes, and how materials can speak for themselves and to each other.
They are passionate about bringing people into their making-process.
Danica lives and works in Toronto, Canada.
