Like many of you, we have been closely following the developments of COVID-19. The safety of our visitors, campers, staff, and volunteers is our top priority. Therefore, the Gardiner Museum and Gardiner Shop, including the online Shop, are temporarily closed.

We are grateful for your support and thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to navigate this challenging time. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at Our team will make every effort to respond in a timely fashion.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Gardiner soon. Please remember to support your local artist community at this difficult moment.


Those who work in the arts have been hugely impacted by physical distancing measures taken in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. While our governments and arts councils are still in the process of determining what financial support they will be able to provide to workers who have been affected by event cancellations and public closures, they have all stated the importance of documenting your financial losses.

Retail Exhibitions

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

Jordan Scott
March – April

Jordan Scott is a potter based in London, Ontario who makes work that has strong anthropological connections. He experiments with how things are discovered, catalogued, restored, curated, put on display, observed, and put into storage. Scott’s objects are records of what he has seen and experienced, connecting him to the viewer.

Katja van den Enden
March – April

Scattered/Accumulation consists of two bodies of work: Scattered, a series that looks at non-linear thinking within the creative process, and Accumulation, a series that investigates growth in all its forms. Katja van den Enden’s fascination with natural patterns created by sedimentation, layering, abrasion, accumulation, fragmentation, and cellular growth informs her stunning clay creations.
