Annual Friends Campaign

Looking to the Future

These are challenging times and the health and well-being of our Gardiner Friends, visitors, and staff is at the forefront of our minds. While there is still a lot of uncertainty, we are continuing to plan for the future, including engaging exhibitions, innovative education programs, and vital community projects. We need your support more than ever to help us build community with clay.

Please consider a gift to the Gardiner today and be a part of Museum’s future.

Your contribution will support our 2021 exhibitions and associated programs, including:

  • Outside the palace of Me. A major exhibition of new work by celebrated Canadian visual artist and performer Shary Boyle. Coming February 2021.
  • International Ceramic Art Fair. An art fair and fundraising event for the Gardiner’s education and community programs, featuring extraordinary works by Canadian and international artists. Coming June 2021.
  • Global Luxury in Renaissance Venice. The first exhibition to explore Venetian maiolica within the context of the city’s expanding material world and dominance as a trading power between East and West. Coming October 2021.

This year has been a reminder of our interconnectedness and the importance of community. Together we can ensure that the Gardiner remains a vital, vibrant museum and community arts hub for years to come.

We're open from Wednesday - Sunday with free admission, hands-on activities, dining, shopping, and more!Learn more
