The Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery is a Waterloo-based art museum with a national mandate dedicated to exhibiting, interpreting and collecting innovative contemporary ceramic, glass and enamel works. We show Canadian and international artists who challenge ideas and perceptions of art, craft and design today. Our critically acclaimed exhibitions actively engage diverse audiences by addressing issues and themes relevant to our times.
The Gallery’s public programs offer multiple pathways for engagement with contemporary artworks and art-making practices. The Gallery Shop is recognized on its own merits as a fine-craft gallery, showing the best of Canadian ceramic and glass works. Housing a permanent collection of historical and contemporary Canadian ceramic, glass and enamel art, the Gallery is proud to conserve and promote an active component of Canada’s rich cultural heritage.
