In addition to our ongoing retail selection, the Gardiner Shop hosts exhibitions featuring the work of top local artists and designers.

Eden Bender: Come Undone
March 2017

Eden Bender’s current body of ceramic sculptures focuses on the human spirit and the potential to overcome adversity. The combined use of paper clay, metal, paints, glazes, inks, flocking, wood and found objects intentionally draws the viewer to not only observe but also explore through touch. Her work is often described as dark, ironic, evocative and strangely humorous.

Chiho Tokita: Ikebana Abstracting
March – May, 2017

Merging the container and the contained, where the flower and the vase are fused together as a single entity, ikebana abstracting re-interprets the Japanese art of flower arrangement as a sculptural collage. These ikebana forms are amassed together to create a garden of gestures, playing with line, texture and material expressions.

Celebration 2017
April 4 – 30, 2017
The Gardiner Shop celebrates its recent transformation with a collaborative show featuring work by more than 40 Canadian ceramic artists including Thomas Aitken & Kate Hyde, Barbara Banfield, Jay Burn, Susan Card, Chris Hierlihy, and Nurielle Stern.
