The Gardiner is now open from Thursday - Sunday, including free weekend admission! There's plenty of space to reconnect and amazing art to discover in all corners of the Museum. Clay Restaurant is still open Tuesday - Sunday. Reservations fill up fast, so book your table early. Please read our new health and safety policies before you visit.
From sticky to crusty, pliable to powdery, and shaped to shapeless, clay’s ability to transform in real time is prompting a new generation of artists to explore the possibilities of this ancient material. RAW features new work by four artists who are pushing boundaries with unfired clay: Cassils, Magdolene Dykstra, Azza El Siddique, and Linda Swanson. See it now!
We're firing up the kilns again! Join us on Saturdays and Sundays from 1 - 3 pm for drop in clay classes in our pottery studios. We've reduced our class sizes to allow for safe physical distancing, and instituted new health and safety protocols. Registration opens online at 10 am on the morning of the class. We can't wait to see you back in the studios!
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!
As we begin to welcome visitors back to the Gardiner, we need your support to continue offering innovative and engaging exhibitions, programs, and community projects on site and online. Make a donation and help us build community with clay.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: It’s with heavy hearts that we have cancelled our July and August Summer Camps. We reached this difficult decision based on recommendations from local public health officials. Due to the hands-on nature of our camps, small studio sizes, and the need for physical distancing, we’re unable to run the program safely.
We know how much our campers look forward to working with clay and expressing their creativity. If the Museum is able to reopen this summer, we’ll be evaluating ways to host shorter visits to our studios in smaller groups, and will keep you informed of our plans as they roll out.
Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you for our 2021 Summer Camp season.
